Hello everyone
« on: 19, September, 2011 - 12:20:01 »
Hi everyone, I'm new here and fairly new to C5's.
I just thought I'd say hi.
I was at the Brooklands Museum yesterday and still cant believe how fast the C5000 was up test hill! It was like it was being fired out of a slingshot.

I also gave way to temptation when I saw Radiomarty's lovely C5 and took it home with me at the end of the day!

It was great meeting you Marty, so I thought I'd say hello on here too.

I've also been treated very kindly by capslock10wood on ebay who sold me an aluminium chain tensioner that doesnt require the plastic clip, is that Chas on here?

I have another C5 which is looking a bit sorry for itself but has lots of original accessories (mirrors, indicators and original twin battery cables. I'm slowly renovating the mechanicals as I have time and keeping my eye out for a few odd bits that I need (pod fastening clips, boot liner, boot key)
I'd also like to strip it all down and repaint the chassis over the coming winter months.

Thanks both of you for being so helpful.

Welcome aboard mate.

Yes Chas is capslock, top man, can't say enough nice things about him :)

Hope your C5 gives you lots of enjoyment! See you at a run/meet next year!

Hi Mike and thanks.
I originally bought my first C5 so that I could take my car mad 3 year old nephew for rides around Bushy and Richmond Park. I'm not sure who enjoys it most, him or me!
Then I remembered how much I yearned for one as a transportless 10 year old in 1985 and am now well and truly bitten by the bug.

I'd love to come along to a meet soon :)

Glad you've joined us.

I have a boot up for grabs at the moment (minus the lock) that is waiting payment;

 If Lee changes his mind I'll let you know . There are some alternative locks available;

Failing that, why not place a wanted ad for all the parts you need?

Look forward to seeing you out on a run, although we're starting to wind down for the winter now...maybe see you at some meetings/events in the new year  :)
