I got to attend a show in Columbia where DB and Curtis were razing my about not owning a C3, but promised pictures of my old C3, if I could find them. Well, I found them. Keep in mind that these are pictures of pictures taken with a Wal Mart disposable camera. Anyway, hope ya'll enjoy.

I still miss this old car!!

That's a slick looking car Andrew...I sure wish you still had it too. Sounds like you and that car had a lot of history.

WOW, I forgot about posting this one.

It ran pretty good. It had a warmed over 383 with a 4 speed and 4.10 or better rear end. Quick car, but ran out of steam quickly. The 4 speed made this car fun. That car actually stuck to the ground better than my current C4.

The most memorable experience was when all 5 lugs sheered off. I was in a school zone, coasting about 20 mph when it happened. The rear raised up about 4", then WHAM, rotor slammed to the ground, sparking and making some horrendous noises. I was able to slide it into a gas station parking lot before it came to a stop. Helplessly watching the tire roll by and into a 4 way stop intersection, hitting a Toyota truck was something that I will not ever forget! I had to remove and rebuild the entire rear end. Funny thing is that the body actually rode up the tire, but somehow had no cracking or paint damage?? I was lucky to be going 20 and not 70.

I wish I still had it.

TommyT - now this wasn't that long ago.... I bought it in 2000 and sold it in 2005(ish), the picture style just make it look like they are old.

Nice car...loving the tire size combo..looks like an old muscle car.

Your story about the wheel coming off was crazy... I just saw it happen going 65mph on the highway....I was going the opposite direction in my Hummer when I saw a wheel/tire combo fly across in front of me and hit a car right on its hood ornament. The tire came off an older 70's Camaro...it a crazy site too see.
