Morning all,

After wanting one since they came out I've finally got my hands on a C5, funnily enough picking it up on the 30th anniversary. Its been a bit unloved and used for spares but now I'm going to  restore her to her former glory :)

here she is after a quick clean up

Welcome to the new life with your C5.
Lots of frustrations but more fun.

Hi Smiler,

so I assume you are also located in Basel, or in the vicinity.

Hi Smiler,

Wow! looks like a one road village, and not the best of places to run a C5. :o :o

Hi Guys,

I will be in Winterthur for a week in Feb. I work for a Swiss company called Belimo.

Nice to see more C5's abroad but Switzerland is very hilly even more than Manchester here in the UK.

thanks Lance
