It couldn’t last forever and with every car scheme comes a change of car and when Rob needed to get round bigger distances with a family, it was time for the C303 to go.
But, all is not lost. The new owner, Thomas, has taken excellent care of the car and – as he proves with this picture – has kept the QR_ logo proudly on the side. He doesn’t promise to keep it that way but maybe we could persuade him to follow our rebrand?
Thomas kept the QR_ logo in prode of place on the side…ready for QR_3.0 Thomas?!
Thomas, an Engineer who is more than capable of working on the car mechanically, says,
"It has been a restoration on wheels over a period of four years – technically now it is fully ready for daily usage, but I kept the odd looking Paint! I had a handshake to almost every single screw. Now the car is a camping mobile – but no structural changes have been made so that it can be built back into its original 1975 condition. The QR-Logo stays on the car – but this is not a promise!"
The longest distance trip he has done was going to Wetzlar for a family meeting, Mosel, Rüdesheim and Eupen in Belgium, however approx. 2000 km per year is the average.
"For the next year I am planning a 3 weeks road trip through France together with my wife, the maximum daily driving distance is planned for 150 km. It’s soooo loud inside!!"
