Hello C5ers.
« on: 15, March, 2012 - 20:25:50 »
(Please note that I'm not an owner yet but will be on the lookout for one in the summer)

Hello All,

My name is Dave and I love a bit of 70's and 80's retro charm.

   I've always liked the C5 but was under the impression that they were super rare and just as expensive. I was having a search on eBay the other week and stumbled across a bit of a dog but was surprised how cheap it was up for. That brief encounter made me wonder if there was a forum for the C5 and here I am   ;D

  The plan is to do some research and hopefully buy one that needs a bit of work by the Summer.

Hello Again

Thanks for all the friendly replies.

 A lot of good infomation and helpful people on here. I spent a lot of last night reading up and I'll definitely end up owning one of these pretty soon. Unfortunately my 60 mile round trip to work appears out of the question   ;D


..unless you buy one of my fully restored c5's  8)

Now where's the fun in that?!    ;)
