That is a great article. I really like the factory photos. Man, how I would love to have visited such a factory once.

£50 for a good DB5 boxed?
Dream on... the real value is much higher.

I agree with both of you. The photos are great and you don't get to see them very often and the price quoted must be years old as you can't find one for under £100 these days.

Even new ones go astronomically high. But that has died down now.

got heaps of extras now, gold and silver

I just have my silver one with out box. It is in very good conditon. Bought it off the Toy Collector sale site when it was up. Christian's wife sold it to me along with a boxed Matchbox kings K-8 with Green Cab and orange trailer in near mint condition. Both were about $40 each and I thought a good price. Would love to have a Gold Bond Aston but they are even more than the silver ones.
