Bond Cars Special

I meant to mention this on the earlier post. If you missed the Top Gear special last night, and you’re any sort of petrol-head, you missed a treat. I watched it this morning on iplayer and really enjoyed it. Do the same if you didn’t see it last night. Interesting as well as entertaining, and I particularly liked Hammond’s enthusiastic style.

Another good thing about the show was the complete lack of any appearance of the insufferable Jeremy Clarkson…

One of the original Aston Martin DB5s from the film Goldfinger is now in an enthusiast’s collection in the US, having been sold at auction for £2.6m two years ago.

I first met Jezza when he was a cub reporter for the Rotherham Advertiser. He was a friend of a friend. He had already mastered being insufferable at an early age.
