I'm Alex, 17 on may 11th, And Currently on the hunt for a C5

I'm in a mechanics course in college, I LOVE engine work and I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty. I'll do anything once, Cause lets face it, You only live once

I hope to be a simple Mobile Mechanic some day, Going from job to job in a Merc Benz Sprinter, LWB, Or maybe an LDV Convoy ^.^

I'm generally a happy person with the odd low, But hey, Life gets you down some times. Glad I joined this site =) Looks to be very promising

Hi Im Richard, 23, which means The C5 and I am the same age.

I own one C5 (Sparx) which currently Im in the process of restoring.

I work for a company who adapt printers and computers for the milatary, where I do things with a soldering iron.

In addition to the C5 I am a attempted writer, film maker, photoshopper and worshiper of heavy metal.

While Brakes are no concen to a C5 that dont go, i'm sure i'll develope a intrest soon enough

mmm, gave this one some thought !

As the owner of C5alive I really should introduce myself, especially as we have a nice new home here complete with new neighbours.

I'm Karl and ,along with my wife Angie and my daughter Jordan, have taken over the reins for C5alive from Mark.

As a shift-worker for a large London based firm ( :-X) some days are easier to spend on C5 stuf than others.

I own five C5's at the moment, a couple of which are quite special - Voodoo and the "furry one", both "parts-bin" specials.
Along with Hank,Paul Bunce,Ollie,Johnny,Mark & Neil I completed last years London-Brighton run on a C5. I've also attended most of the meetings, so I've met quite a few people from here.

Once my job changes settle down I will be sorting out some new meetings and making more friends.

Hi Im Hank, a 23 year old Graphic Designer, working in Bath. (But live in chippenham). I am also the same age as the C5 and was born in the same month that they were launched!

My C5 is named bumblebee, to match its bright yellow and black colour.

Im always on the lookout for Design work to be doing, so if anyone needs their own business re-vamping, logo re-designing or a corporate identity created im you man! I dont charge much either! ;) You can get a look at my work on my website at: www.hankdesign.co.uk

Hello All!

I am Lee (or Lee, Lee or Bully whichever I don't mind), never mind the age and all that stuff, believe me its not that interesting!!!
I currently have 5 C5's, one is my first, fully restored and kitted out, she's been on man runs etc including the Wales run (excellent jobby!!) she has no name, but I call her a few choice ones when I have to peddle up some of the steep hills in Derbyshire!, one more is on the bench now, going through a full restoration, three others are waiting to be done.
I have met up with loads of great people, because of the C5

Cheers..Lee, Lee

Blablubblubublabbu is right, there's more than a few others here who aren't afraid to "improve" the original design a little  ;D

Bit like your £25 special, having a "parts-bin" C5 is great coz you are free to experiment without fear of trashing a pristine example.

Sounds like a promising start to a great little project! I wish I could find one for £25 :)

Hi Everyone!

I'm Oliver 26 from Yorkshire, I grew up with sinclair products and always wanted a c5, and even worse remember when they were so cheap. But of course never had the means to buy one, well now I can so the hunt is on for a restoration job, this seemed a good place to start!
