Cheers Buddy.
Thought i would make it different.
Some might get fed up of pictures of the same car but my hobby, apart from living and breathing, is photography.

I like the shape of the c5. I've had 2 and will probably have a third at some point. I like those wheels too, I think they are the nicest c5 standard wheels.
And I love the effect you have done!

Looks more like an Abbey to me.

I know, I did try to hide it.

We went out in the German car today for her indoors to see the difference.
It will shortly be up for sale, although i do really like it, and so does the Mrs. It is like a little sports car to drive and it makes me want to pimp it with wide shiny wheels and drive it like a lunatic, but, I am now going to get a van for back and fore work. Hopefully a French van.

Then we went out in the C5 just to show her what she missed in the German car. Took a few night photos, was freezing cold, no torch to see what i was doing and i think i went overboard with a filter. Will find a more suitable location when it's warmer and take some decent shots, but for now here's a few.

Nice Russ. I do like the shape of the hatch c5. I guess the general population doesn't, which is why values are in the toilet at the moment!

Value of every thing is in the toilet.......with the new Consumer Protection giving in effect 3 to 6 months warranty on 2nd hand cars via small traders they are not touching them any more......so private sales only on 10 year old + cars and the resultant drop in prices.

Well the C5 has won the battle with her indoors. She now agrees with me that the German thing is the one to go ☺
Having had a few rides out in both she is happy. Now to sell the German thing and buy a van although I cannot guarantee it will be French then the C5 can sit on the drive all week and be the weekend car happy days.

Happy days indeed Alasdair. If only i was not parked up on the A12 at this moment in my truck, eating apple pies and drinking coffee then life could be even better.
Oh the joys of being a truck driver.
