    I like the DB5, but I'm not sure I want it Bond'ified.

    Wait a minute: how long do you think the SUVs driving in the fast lane would move out of the way if they were to see the prop machine guns appear???
    Smoke cloud while being chased down the LIE by the popo?

    Hmmmmm

    Wonder if I can get my 308 retro-fitted with rockets for the air & oil cooler inlets?

    I was reading about that in Sports Car Market. Wonder what it will go for.

    It's hard to tell. The 'Bondified' A-M helped build the James Bond brand; but that was in the early Sixties--a very different time. Are there enough old codgers willing to trade their walkers in for this car? Will the younger generation of buyers respect and value it?

    I've never been a big fan of movie cars. To me the James Bond Aston belongs in the same museum with the Batmobile and the car from the Munsters.

    In my mind, this car isn't as valuable as it was forty years ago, but that's just my opinion. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm late for the shuffleboard tournament...

    Wild, uneducated guess: $400K - $600K.

    That car is HOT.

    Who wouldn't want to play James Bond and get the girl at the end in the car?

    You've proven me wrong! The younger generation does care.

    I remember when it was at Griswold in Berkeley, CA.
    I should have bought it then.

    ...you mean "Who wouldn't want to play James Bond and get the girl in the end at the car"

    I love that the front grills haven't changed much.

    You mean this Batmobile?

    I'd love the Bond DB5 - and I'll have ***** Galore as well...

    The DB5 was converted back to its normal state, but was re-Bondified when it was discovered to be the one used in the James Bond films. Regardless personal opinions on cars used in films, they do generally hold a greater value when compared to their "regular" counterparts.

    C'mon that car is Schweeeet with a capital S! I think it'll go for $1M - if I was stupid rich, I'd pay that much for it...

    and I get the bond girl with it ;)
