    Great collection, I had no idea they murdered the spit 1500 with mgb style rubber bumpers. How do you get on with the Aston, I am vaguely shopping for one

    Great thanks, they are a treasure and provide great therapy and fun. I actually enjoy this bumper on the Spit, it is uncommon and often the underdog but it also lengthens the Spitfire nicely. The Vantage is a dream. An entry vehicle but I wouldn't be able to afford the upper level AMs. A collector in Chicago was letting her go and I found all the colors and transmission I wanted with only 13k miles on it. They are all nice cars but I catch myself just standing and staring at the Vantage, like looking at art.

    Best, M.

    Totally agree. I always like the V8 Vantage from The Living Daylights and this model is the modern version. It would be cool to have the two side-by-side.

    An employee (not me, I was WFH and was reading the news) of the car dealer spun at high speed and crashed into a tree.

    The boss of this car dealer employee is probably very happy at the moment

    Driverv is okay, don't know whether he still has a job at the dealership.

    Plenty of stories about car crashes where someone at the dealership is taking it out for a spin and feels over confident.

    Don't you mean not happy or did you say happy because of cashing in on the insurance of a € 3 mln car?

    Well I meant not happy. But I have this brain damage which triggers sarcasm regularly. Sorry

    S’okay, just one of posh Fiats.
    I once had to pick up a modified Mitsi evos to bring into the garage, 800ish bhp, not sure which worried me most, the acceleration or the way the fuel gauge dropped!
