Finally got around to getting the AMV8 & 360 out together (with the help of my brother).
It was a beautiful day here in Dublin, crisp, cold, blue skies - the way the autumn should be. We're just on our way back home after a great spin and having swapped cars a few times when we pull up behind a DB9 at the lights. I'm in the Ferrari, effectively in the middle of an Aston Martin escort. It's unlikely this is going to happen again, so we keep going past the house and follow the DB9 (who now probably thinks he has picked up the most indiscreet stalkers ever!) through our local (small) town until he gets to the local harbour area/playground.
Out we hop - he comes straight over, with his two small boys and we exchange usual plesantries... "your car is lovely", "your's too"... mutual flattering
etc. Anyway I've known this guy for about 60 seconds and he throws me the keys to his DB9. "I'm off to the playground with the boys, take her for a spin!", and with that the brother and I lock the other two cars and take off around the town in a DB9!
Very different from the Vantage, feels much faster, much bigger and a lot less nimble, but lovely none the less. Tempted by the road out of town, I thought better and took his pride and joy back. What a gent - there really are some real car nuts and genuine nice people in the world. Getting the chance to drive a car I've never driven before is always special, and that made my day for me.
Anyways here's a few pics from the day.
