Another Sinclair C5 in Spain
« on: 12, March, 2012 - 09:12:23 »
Hi all, there´s a new Sinclair C5 in Spain  :D :D. It´s located in Valencia, east Mediterranean coast, almost 400 miles away from me,  and the new owner is Thorsten, a german man who works there two years ago. I´m trying he goes into the forum and tell you his experience, but he say his english isn´t quite good enough to write here so I´ll try you keep you updated on his name. He bought the C5 in Germany two weeks ago and transport to Valencia by truck. The car isn´t a working unit still. It had several faults in electronics, brushes, tires and a curious yellow colour . I´m trying to help his work as long as I can from the distance and I´ve sent him all the manuals and papers I have about the C5. This man is a good modelist so I think he´ll be able to repair the C5 as good as anybody so it will be a good road runner in a few time. He want use it to commuting to work everyday.

I´ve put a pair of piccies here:

Ok, that´s all by the moment, keep you updated.

Regards, Rafael
