    Nice cars too, although the driving footage was a bit boring and I knocked it off after three minutes.

    The mk2 db6 is the best Aston for me, they fixed all the problems that dogged the 5 and it was just plain better

    Of those 2 the ferrari is the one Iíd pick though, itís just so pretty, massively underrated machine

    I had to drive the DB6 with a bit of respect, so no heroics there....

    Yes, it was a promo for Moss, I was working for Hexagon Classics and used the DB6 to partner the Ferrari. It was a fun but bloody hot couple of days.

    Oops sorry, no offence intended! I now understand why it was fairly tame.

    No problem, the DB6 is available for £650 grand, so that's why I was a bit cautious. Given that the video was shot within the Northern part of the M25, there were a few close shaves !!!

    I think you might be in luck, the Aston has been reduced to £450 grand, should I have a word ????

    After I bought this at auction I was asked to take it for a good long drive to make sure it all worked. All in a day's work...

    That is fascinating .. Iím guessing other than primo work and your other post that you source and test cars for people, well played what a cracking thing to be doing!

    There will be a lot of envious car nuts on here

    I know someone who has had a DB5 and a DB6 and his take on them - beautiful to look at, horrible to drive. Terrible steering, poor brakes, soft suspension and quite slow (even when compared with many other sports cars of that era). A bit of a barge - a lovely looking barge, but a barge all the same. Swapped the DB6 for a 2.7 Porsche.

    Whoever does not know how to hit the nail on the head should be asked not to hit it at all.

    The 34mm 6694 Oysterdate Precision was a bit pedestrian to be in such illustrious automotive company! I think a classic 6239 pumper-pusher Daytona would have been more appropriate...

    Enjoyed the film though! :-)

    I must admit that it wasn't until the end credits that I realised what Moss did. Love the cars and that fork truck device for moving them in storage - I never knew they existed.
