Spotted at Lavenham Classics today this 1936 1.5 litre Aston Martin. Plenty of other interesting stuff but for the provenance of this particular one.

Not sure if you can zoom in and read the text but originally purchased by Lord Howard de Walden, a very wealthy land and racehorse owner. Whilst driving in Germany in the late 30's he actually hit and knocked down Hitler with this very car, although the latter suffered no serious injury. He often reflected on the outcome of him travelling a little faster innocent

Lovely car in it's own right without the added kudos of nearly killing the second worse man in the world.

You are obviously angling for someone to ask who you think was the worst, so I will do the honours for you.

I suppose if you judge in terms of numbers killed you would have to go for Stalin or maybe Mao. Pol Pot was a beginner in those stakes.

The gentleman had a good sense of perspective, he just needed to have been going a wee bit faster.
