My father and I took his 2008 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster that he bought recently downtown to a exotics shop called Kings Cross Automotive. Once a year, their customers get together for a small meet and greet. There were some BEAUTIFUL cars there! I took about 52 pictures with my new smart phone. I'll try and remember the details with each picture. (EDIT: this could take me a while to upload all of these; probably an hour at least). I apologize if the color is off on some of these pictures....I'm new to smartphones, and I'm still learning the ropes. I'm not sure what the picture limit is per post, so I will be doing 10 pictures per post, just to be on the safe side. This first post will be dedicated to the Aston, and then we'll move on to the other cars that were there in the next posts. Without further ado.... Here's dad getting the Aston ready just before we left. Quick stats: 4.3 liter V8, 385 hp (he's thinking about getting it supercharged to 650 hp, but he's a stinker for keeping his cars stock....he REALLY likes the idea of that much power though), factory-painted Porsche-yellow paint job with matching yellow interior stitching, factory lowered suspension, TSW after-market wheels (they came with the car, but he has the originals, which are black). Not sure what size these are, but I REALLY like them. The pistons that lower the roof are shot, so it only goes down half-way. He's got 4 of them on order, and the shop should be hearing back from Aston Martin about them next week, along with some oxygen sensors for the engine. Until then, however, the top is gonna have to stay up. Once we were downtown: It drew quite a crowd. A girl saw the car there earlier in the week when it was in the shop (her family owns a couple of exotics themselves) and came around to look at it about 5 or 6 times while we were there. I eventually asked her if she would like to sit in it, which she quickly accepted. A couple of beauties in their 20s also hung out in the driver's seat and took selfies....unfortunately, I failed in my opportunity to provide all of you with "dat azz".... That's pop's car done. The next posts will contain the other cars that were there. Some beautiful Jags coming up!
