Yes, I thought the same thing.:mrgreen:

However, knowing Steve, he won't care how uncool it gets and rightly so. That is one good looking car. 8)

Lovely car Steve, but like the others have said my mind goes back to what the hamster had to say :twisted: :twisted:

The hamster is ill-informed - those cars are drop dead gorgeous!

I certainly wouldn't turn down an Aston if somebody was handing them out! :rolleyes:

Sorry but I think that the Hamster is definitely wrong on this one...

B******R missed it, having to good a time driving the new toy. Did they knock the Aston? If they did I don't care I think the Aston is a piece of automotive art and is certainly quick enough for me :-D.

Sod cufflinks - wait til you get the service bills ! Just had a routine service on DB7 rag top but also changed the auto gearbox sump gasket(minor leak) and g/box filter - 1800 quids !!!
LSD Diff oil is 15 quid - but needs a supplement an extra 35 quid !!! Roll on the Daytona arriving

Not inspired by every contemporary Aston, but that is very tasty, and if you keep it for years it may become super valuable; look at DB4/5/6 values, doubled in last year or so, a PROPERLY sound DB5 now makes 100k+..!
All this panic re; a cold wind blowing through the economy, real estate downwardly spiralling etc. but the classic car scene: values have gone MAD!

Neil - surely you don't need a lift to Le Mans now that your motor is doing what it is supposed to do ?

Seriously nice car Steve !! - Mind you the salesman was impressed with the Cobs!!

(especially Neil's as he's got a bigger motor than most)
