USA C5 is Finally Finished!

Thank you to everyone for all the help and advice.  I drove the C5 to work yesterday for the first time and made a 10 mile round trip without issue.  Everything worked as expected and I could not be happier.  :D   I will make sure to post more pictures very soon of the completed C5 to share with you all.     - Adam from the U.S.

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

Hi Adam,

after all that hard work you can be proud of yourself.

Seeing as the C5 is less know in the States as here, I bet you're provoking a lot of smiles and questions.  ;D

Av phun, sorry, I bet you already are.

Karl.

It has been a blast and yes, I have not met a single person who has ever seen one.  So that is very cool.  unfortunately it is broken again as I snapped a brake cable and can no longer stop.

Hi Adam,
