Somebody driving a Sinclair C5 on the pavement slowly & talking with a mate of his.

I have not seen those since the late eighties when they been used for fun rides.

There was something on the local news down here about some student type having got hold of a C5 for cheap motoring to beat the rises in the cost of fuel. Uncle Sir Clive was 23 years ahead of his time it would seem, time for the C5 to make a comeback.

Here's a couple of photos I took when I visited.

(Coventry Transport Museum is a really good place to visit and it's free! They also have a DeLorean and the infamous Vectrex bike on display.)



This one's in Manchester's Museum of Science and Industry (also free admission).

It was a ultra rare bike that had a Vectrex superglued to it which you could play as you cycled! I've got one for sale on eBay, starting bid £5000.



OK OK, I meant the Vektar. :(

I saw a broken down DeLorean being towed away in Sheffield yesterday. Poor thing!

I know my limits, The Master is an unobtainable dream while a Vektar is just a matter of cash ;)
