Top man!

I got a twitter message from that guy that overtook us on a bike, and another from some random taxi driver that must have seen us :)

Hurrah! I too have a disc, and it looks great (before I even put it in the drive!)

Cheers John!

I watched the DVD today , what a blast you guys had - good to see the spirit of "improvise,adapt and overcome" was still on show  8)

Top movie footage mate  ;)

Now that I've got my computer a little more stable I've just been able to watch this - superb ! Good to see the meetings being so well documented< The movie clips are probably the greatest help in convincing people that c5's are useable, even if the vehicles are now 25 years old  8)

Karl, I have found the most convincing argument when showing off the C5 is as a leisure vehicle, not as a practical runaround (which it also does well at).

Even as a pure C5 devotee, I'm unsure of how far I'd be willing to travel without assistance (or assistance being too far away!)

My hat goes off to people like Retro Andy, using his C5 to commute!
