Since I don't happen to have a historical event to report on today, I was thankful that a co-worker, who know about my affection for Bond, mentioned she saw a news article about a scaled down model of the Aston Martin DB5 that featured in Goldfinger.
Prop Shop UK is currently building 100 one-third scale models of the million-dollar DB5 and replicates all the bells, whistles and gadgets we know and love from the film. And, if you live in or within driving distance of Aston Martin Beverly Hills (125 South Robertson Blvd, Beverly Hills), then you are in for a treat: one of the models is on display in the showroom window.
If you salivating for your own and you happen to have an extra $45,000 burning a hole in your wallet, then you could have your very own!
Here's a link to the news video that aired on Channel 7 Eyewitness News - enjoy!
Please note that I'll be off-line for a National Academy of Recording Arts event in Los Angeles tomorrow, but Bond 365 will be back on Wednesday!
