Classic British automotive Pr0ns -- Aston Martin DB4

When I search for the images to use in these things, sometimes I happen upon cars to use in future ones... In such, this one was searched, written and images attached 3 weeks ago when I actually did the one on the Benz SLR. Sue me, I think ahead... Anyway, Aston Martin is more than just the "James Bond cars," even though they very much ARE the car that Daniel Craig is very much wheeling as 007 these days. In fact, there was a time that they were quite heavy in the sportscar game. This one was no different, coming in proper coupe and convertible configurations. The GT version, which you will see more of than others in this were the racing version, and Lord knows that they were taken that way, with the Zagato specifically, lighter weight and brisk performance, with 6ish seconds to 60MPH and a top speed of around 155ish. You've seen one in movies if you have seen The Italian Job or Goldfinger. On to the images, now. Gallery can be found here .

(25) Dutch Automotive Pr0ns -- Donkervoort D8

You know, there are a lot of things to be known about the Netherlands, and not My Nether Regions , as none of you were invited to be there. We know about the whole weed is legal thing, and we know about the Royale with Cheese . We know about Red Light Districts and we MIGHT know about Goldmember. [ Phlip note - oh wait, he was from Holland, wasn't he? Wait, is there even a fucking difference? I REALLY need to work on what I am willing to accept that I know about the world, gleaned from movies, don't I?] Anyway... Gearheads know that the Lotus Seven was another copied and kit-car'd piece from the Parthenon of automobiledom, it seems that Lotus was all about getting shit abso-fucking lutely RIGHT for quite a while before damn near going belly up, then getting in bed with Isuzu and General Motors, but that is another blog for another time, should I so choose to go there. Back to the Dutch... Netherlands-based automobile company Donkervoort has made a 1978-now company career
