    The Vanish, for historical reference.

    Ugh, Die Another Day - what a terrible film. One of the few Bond films that I don't own and never will, along with Licence to Kill.

    Yes, the movie was bad. That Q scene is one of the few memorable in the entire film.

    Terrible theme song too. Although, the new one for No Time To Die may be even worse. When did not being able to sing become the new way to sing? TBH, I'm worried about how NTTD will turn out in this era of identity politics. I hope I'm proved wrong!

    Oh, you are so right. A Madonna electro-pop Bond theme was never going to work.

    I haven't heard it.

    I hope you are proved to be wrong too!

    Always wanted an Aston, tried one when a mate had one in stock, Wow, but it seemed like lampposts to the gallon-maybe my lead foot?- but it was just to long for the garage, and it is a ‘grand tourer’ not the hooligan toy my Honda is, now, if I could have more cars?


    And some more spare cash.

    The 2005-2018 V8 Vantage is still my favorite ::love::

    The "new" Vantage does look very cool- but I wonder if it's an "in-between" car.

    I get the Singer Porsche/ Alfaholics Alfa GTA cars, where a older car is rebuilt using modern parts...but a modern car being remade with even more modern parts? Not sure who the buyers are, but my guess is that a large part of the market for this car would be the same people looking at buying a new Aston Martin. If that's right, then the project makes little sense for Callum or AM

    I don't suppose that AM gets a choice in the matter. Customers need a donor car and once you own a car, you can do what you like with it.

    True- thought I read somewhere that AM was supportive of the company
