Excellent pictures, the C5's look great, really like the General Lee, would be good to see a Trotters
C5 or a K.I.T.T, Nice to see Karl's old Mini-El on display again.

Retro Andy.

Excellent piccies there Plod, thanks for posting them it means I can add mine a little later...I'm absolutely spent !

The London museum guys were amazing, the four c5s on display started out as standard and were then customised in just two days  :o Bit like Pimp my Ride, they worked through the night to get them finished in time. I was quite surprised to see they had my old mini-el there as well, even if it was just on loan. I'm hoping to arrange a c5 run at their premises to help promote the new electric section they're opening on 1st October...

The Ecovelocity show itself was superb and our little display drew lots of attention..hopefully a few more budding c5 owners will appear on the horizon  ;D Some fantastic machines not only on display but also available to test drive. A superb event and fantastic day out for anyone visiting.

Glad Tony and Max are taking over for the next two days , I'm exhausted  :D

The wrapped C5's are brill - love the cut away one too.

I met a guy today who runs a skate and BMX event in Bristol (though he's from Surrey) and want's you to bring your display down if you are interested.

Hi Karl

We got even more attention Saturday and Sunday with absolutely no negative comments from everyone that visited stand. Although I guess we were preaching to the converted!

Here's a link to some of the pictures we took:

Thanks for the opportunity to help out, it was a great experience.

See you at Brooklands (Our Home Venue) on Sunday.

Tony & Max

Could be a giggle, get him to email me and see what we can sort out  ;D

Awesome Pics Plod.

Gutted I missed out on such a fantastic day out also very interested in that Honda CR-Z as maybe a greener replacement to my Copen in 2 or 3 years time.

The Shiney customized C5's look like they've been shrink wrapped in a glossy plastic.... Well fun.

See what happens when I take my eye of the site a while I go n miss out & I'm London based too GRRRR!

Those c5's were painted by the guys at London Motor Museum;

..they did look fab  8)

Here are a few of my piccies, I took loads more but they're virtually the same as Plods  ;D

 

















I really enjoyed looking at the smaller stands at the event, not such a big fan of the large corporate stuff...although the Renault twiz-e caught my eye  8) Quite like the idea of owning one of those  :)

You and me both mate  ;D

Sadly they seem to have priced themselves out of their prospective market  :'( ;
http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news/autoexpressnews/267715/renault_twizy_prices_confirmed.html

..when the details were first aired a few years back they said it would be around £3k to £4k , the latest info is nearer £7k. Might as well buy a proper car for that much money  ::)
