Not all of the noble prewar Aston Martins are in designer garages...

Thanks Jens, that is a great video and what a grounded owner, the patina is just perfect on that car.
I hope he enjoys the car for many years to come.

Wonderful, I liked the way he affectionately patted the scuttle, reminds me of my dad who always patted the car after a run and said ‘thank you Betsie’ started with his Ford Y Model and finished with his last Ford Focus 🤣.

Charming film.

What a great film and a charming chap. I must admit that I couldn't live with it in that condition but I am well aware of the history caught up in every nook and crany. I saw a pre war AM the other week at my local Lagonda expert www. Davidwall-wroxham.co.uk and it had been completely rebuilt and looked brilliant, much more my cup of tea


Here for a good time not a long time!!

I had a Y model Ford when I was a lad paid £15 for it then someone gave me another which I put in a lock up and used for spares. Sold it for a tenner when the big ends went, I looked it up recently and it's still on the road !!!
