Title: Hey there!
Post by: RoMaTo on 18, February, 2012 - 19:58:30
Hi guys and gals,

Robert from Holland here. I owned a C5 in the eighties and have been considering getting one again for years now cause I loved it back then. So here  I was looking around today on the internet and found that the C5 is really alive!

So as an opening: who has one for sale in tip top condition? Pref in Holland ofcourse :)

..oops, probably not that many left in Holland now  :o  :P ;




...I was in Rotterdam only last week collecting a few more !

FrankEv may be along soon to advise you, he lives near Zutphen and was previously trying to sell one of his collection I believe .

I read that about you being over here and stripping us of the C5's!!

(right so mind you coz the Dutchies usually dont have a clue)

But.. not all is lost since is posted a question just now on what to look for when I find one :) Which I did :) Maybe.. hopefully..

Believe it or not..

I just came from Goes and I can call myself a proud owner of the C5 again :)

After 25 years of separation, the C5 and I are together again :)!!

Now all I need to do is.. see how the ell I can get it running.. It is truly in mint condition, exterior and underneath..

How do you like them apples?!

 ;D ;D ;D ;D I´m very happy to be useful. I think this one of the main reasons to be of this kind of forum, to share information about things of common interest and have the luck to help somebody. By the way I like apples, and better on the top of an apple cake  ;). Serious now, let us know your progress returning your C5 to the road, keep us updated.

Congratulations and regards, Rafael

Hi Robert,

Saw your machine a couple off days ago. Absolute in a great condition with practically no milage.
Great to see another Sinclair back on the road soon.
