Cool cars... and a boat!
Well, I'm a care worker, which sometimes opens doors for you that may otherwise stay closed...
The other day i was out for a walk with the dude i look after, and we stopped to stroke some horses that were leaning over a gate. After a while the lady who owned them came out and chatted to us. She was very pleasant indeed and we all got on very nicely.
We got to talking about how there isn't much to do where i live, and how we sometime struggled to find things to fill the day.
Then something amazing happened.
She said "well, if you feel like it, sometime just have a look in my warehouse over there..."
And we did.
And just look at what we found!
The A Team Van!!!
Just in case there was any doubt as to who drove it!
The boat used in one of the more recent Bond movies to speed down the river Thames!
A Batmobile! Although I can't remember which film it was in (suggestions?) The cars next to it are two former Bond cars, and the car from The Saint
And I have absolutely no idea where this is from, but apparently it's famous! (oh, and the white shell next to it is what remains of the famous underwater Lotus from the Bond film, again I can't remember which one, they all blend together after a while!)
It turns out that she lets the owner of a local car museum store the cars that are not on display, or are awaiting a restoration, in her warehouse, so all these are the genuine article! I was amazed!
And we all had a good time, thanks to a very kind lady and her horses!
Wow - that is amazing Toby!! That certainly turned into a pretty unusual walk!! Glad to hear you had so much fun, and I'll bet you're glad you had your camera along with you :D
Yeah, twas good un! And the pics are from my phone, so i always have a camera really!
The Lotus Asprit is from The Spy who Loved Me, the one with the teeth from Dr No. The Astin Martin from Goldfinger :shock:
And after a trip to googleland - The batmobile is from Batman Returns (1989) It is the after look from when the sides flew off the Bigger car, and it went through the narrow gap - I believe it is known as the Batmissile!
LOL i was just about to post that slink. aint google grand :lol: personally id kill for that A-Team van, or offer her 50 bucks!
I love it when a plan comes together <chews a cigar>
EDIT: Kate.. I work a short week around my CT fire academy classes, and I work for a non-profit organization for my day job. Im alot of things, rich isnt one of them :lol: ahhh the pains of loving your job
I would drop some coin for that A-team van. Thats bad ass.
