Natalya Simonova: “Do you destroy every vehicle you get into?”
James Bond: “Standard operating procedure. Boys with toys.”
Today’s post marks the beginning of a segment near & dear to… the outermost parts of my imagination.
I grew up with Hot Wheels & racing games, they’ve been around me as long as I can remember…
(show child w/ toy, show child growing, show teen with controller, Virtual crash! virtual screams!!, show virtual sad story… cut to real driver’s license, montage real speeding tickets -and end scene.
Long-story, short: I like automobiles;
particularly, well designed automobiles.
Huntsville is home to a plethora of well kept, well designed automobiles; much more than I’ve ever seen in one place (minus car shows).
This segment is my way of sharing
a bit of Huntsville’s car culture with the world.
Not every post will be a collective. Not every car will be an Aston Martin, you never know what we’ll pass by…
neither do we for that matter.
Here’s to enjoying the ride.
The Aston Martin brand has been special to me since I first learned about the cool guy w/ the weaponry in his car. This is the only brand under which I admire every make and model. Hence, I show a collective of models here (minus the Vantage I have on GT5).
Most often, AOTM will highlight one model at a time.
-for those wondering:
Yes, I still collect Hot Wheels. Stay with me here…
The diecast DBS and the ONE-77 were acquired a few months after I snapped pix of the DB9.
Special thanks to Beck at the Speakerbox for the opportunity, I may have more info on them later.
My first time seeing an Aston Martin in person was in Orlando, FL back in 2009 -where I met a brother known as Theodore Belafonte but that’s a story of its own…
I hope you enjoy this segment,
& there’s much more coming-
I still owe some people a few pix of a certain Chevy Nova…
-peace til next week.
Also, Sunn’s b’day just passed, watch the “Showtime” video a few times as a salute to him- he directed this one.
