Spent today hanging out, relaxing while the ladies went shopping, it was nice (and quiet). We've been talking about muscle cars and I don't think we've ever discussed the first ones from England, the Aston V8 and before that the DBS V8:
I've really wanted one, they're gorgeous, but haven't found the right car yet (the one on the bottom is for sale, BTW). Despite being a whole lot more expensive at the time, I'd definitely call them a Pony car, a luxury Mustang. With all the talk about the Equus (not the Kia) this started to get me thinking about maybe taking a salvaged AM V8 (70s) and making a modern Pro Touring version with a lot more power, 6-spd M/T, updated interior, new electronics, modern brakes, etc, the whole thing. Give it the Singer and Outlaw treatment.
