The fascination with cars preserved liked old farm implements has only grown in recent years with the rise of old car values at auctions. Here's the latest example: a 1964 Aston Martin DB5, similar to what James Bond drove in "Goldfinger," that had sat in a barn for 33 years. At a Bonham's auction to be held at Aston Martin's factory in May, the DB5 is expected to fetch about $300,000 and that will be only the new owner's downpayment.

That really is a sexy car. I’m partial to the Auburn Boattail Speedster (completely different) and the Ford GT; but I drool over the XKE too.
Take some time to sit back and relax and WATCH THIS SHOW.. You will enjoy it, guaranteed: http://www.topgear.com/uk/videos/happy-birthday-etype-part-1-series-17-episode-1 Toggle to full screen and enjoy.. The Jaguar Speedster is insane!
Hope this works..
I hope the oil was drained from it first. Also, its seals are going to be crap by now. The body looks great, but the engine will need a lot of TLC.
Even imagining it all shined up, I don’t think it’s a pretty car. But I’m probably not ‘seeing’ it as a man would.
Trust me, it is pretty.
Naa, I ‘ain’t’ gonna trust you, lol. I don’t even like the shape of it, I’ll take the Jag that’s posted below it! I don’t even like the Mustang GT that Steve McQueen drove in Bullet.
Truly one of the most beautiful cars ever made...
Yes, that looks pretty from the front. In the picture above I don’t like the shape from the side, the slant of the back.
I don't understand what you're saying. It sort of sounds like English but the words don't make any sense. ;^)
Makes sense to me, but I’m talking about “shape”. It may make sense to you if I just say I don’t like the ‘shape’ of either of those cars I mentioned “from the side”. Just me - and I can write it in pig-latin if it helps, lolol.
If you did think it was beautiful I would imagine you would have a hundred proposals of marriage within the hour.Trust me this car is georgous.
British cars are really special. With a little bit of restoration, modernization, and maintenance, they are a pound for pound more fun and have more "character" than any other class of classic cars.
