Car Quiz

This car was found in a yard in Massachusetts, trees and vines growing through it. Can you guess what it is?

If you struggle with just one photo, I’ll post one more of the body. Start with this. You car buffs should know.

Okay, no guesses yet. Here’s photo two. C’mon, it’s not that hard.

Answer:

The Aston Martin DB4.

It was the first production car capable of doing 0-100-0mph in less than 30 seconds when it was launched in 1958.
Found, abandoned in Massachusetts, set to be auctioned off. 

This is my favorite photo from the story…..

It will be sold on January 18 at Worldwide Auctioneers’ inaugural Scottsdale sale in Arizona. The auction house is giving the Aston Martin a guide price of $500,000 to $585,000.

Who’s coming to Scottsdale with me on January 18? If we split it ten ways…..I’ll drive it on every third Tuesday…..

      1. I saw the article but I’d know it from the second photo anyway.
        Interesting position of the steering wheel.
        Must have been the export version.

        1. I just posted a link to the article. What the article doesn’t say is why someone let this car rot. Did he not know what he had? He’s said to have been the second owner.

    1. The owner of this wishes but it’s now on the auction block so who knows, the right buyer might make it Bond-worthy again.

      I’ll link story in post now for those of you who don’t know what this car find is!

    1. You’re correct, Cobra.
      Seems to me purchasing the car and coming up with restoration funds aren’t particularly ‘prudent’ investments. When it’s done, hardly anything will be original. I’ll be interested in seeing how that auction goes.

      1. It might be something someone like Jay Leno or Jerry Seinfeld buys, or the guy in CT who restores cars and has a TV show, Chasing Classic Cars. I can’t think of his name right now.
