Took the C5 and TR7 to our local British Car Club's Fall Show
« on: 08, October, 2012 - 01:48:55 »
Have to say the C5 got a lot of attention.  I don't think there was a person there that had ever heard or seen one!  Had fun cruising the show, answering questions, and asking if they would like to try it.  Had a few ask if they could still purchase one.  I answered E-bay!  Sorry Karl if you get more requests to ship to the USA!  Mine is still only pedal powered but still a lot of fun!  Plan on bringing it inside this winter and restoring it.  I'm planning on a custom electric drive.  I'm attaching a few photos.

  • 4 legs may be better than 2 but 3 wheels better then anything!

They do look good next to each other :D (and surprisingly similar in a number of ways).

  • You don't have to be mad to own a C5, but it helps

This has a fast back, the A30 didn't. The front wings don't match those of an A30. :-\

With that paint job it really makes it an eye catcher. How about a similar job on you C5? ;)
