Right people, I need your help.
I want and need an Aston Martin.
It has always been my dream car and having just been to see Spectre last night, my desire has been further fuelled to the point of distraction.
I’m in the know with some people at Silverstone and have been offered the opportunity to race one round the track. Obviously, I’m going to take that offer but…I’m going to have to give it back. Why would I want to do that? That’s just teasing me and I’m likely to zip off course across the fields, Bond style and disappear into the horizon.
When I spent 3 months sorting my Fathers house out in Brentwood to rent not so long back, I had to drive past the Aston Martin garage everyday as he lived within walking distance of it. And his initials were DB..it’s totally meant to be. I took that as a sign that I was meant to have one and would salivate at the window of my car as I drove past them on the forecourt.
I can get an old, second hand one for £90k which is fine because it’s still beautiful and it’s a forever classic, but….it’s £90k and that’s a shit load of money to spend on a car, right? I can buy a flat for that and rent it out and earn an income.
Maybe that’s the answer – grow my property portfolio and become a property tycoon. Writing isn’t going to earn me that kind of moolah unless I turn into JK Rowling but I’m not very good at Wizardry. If I was, guess what I’d be driving.
I can go and get a job at Aston Martin in the vain hope that I get one as a company car but I HIGHLY doubt that or I could stand around in Belgravia in a short skirt hoping one would stop, but..not my style and it’s not the tosser I’m after but the car.
“But Jules, it’s just a material object.”
“Errr…it’s an Aston Martin.”
“These things aren’t important.”
“I don’t think you heard me.”
“It’s just a car.”
“…..splutter…..we’re no longer friends.”
So, I’m looking for ingenious, outside the box, wily, cunning and intelligent thinking on how I can land an Aston Martin V12 Vantage S. I refuse to die until I have one.
Yeah….and back to reality.
