Aston Martin Concours d’Etat

I didn’t know that this was on yesterday – must be seriously losing my touch. But both Stephen and Mike attended the Aston Martin Owners’ Club Concours d’Etat yesterday (don’t you just love that it’s called that? Reliant Robin owners are just as keen but they call their shindigs plain old ‘rallies’) and I at least have photos to share…

I love this 1959 DB3 but by all accounts there was much to choose from. Stephen reckons there must have been about 250 Astons there, sadly I wasn’t so I don’t know.

I am, like Stephen, particulaly taken with the toolkit for the DB3 – which includes a rather alarming hammer – for loosening the wheel nuts, aparently, rather than for duffing up henchmen.

It appears to have been used rather a lot.

Stephen’s favourite – and I suspect mine, too – is this fabulous 1948 Lagonda coupe:

If you, like myself, are fed up you missed it, here’s Mike’s video of the event…

    Only by sheer luck I stumbled across this on Sunday morning whilst walking the dog. Fabulous cars with the most interest in the older models. Afraid I could only just about afford a keyring.

    I’d not seen any mention of this event anywhere in Greenwich.

    It was a truly fabulous sight… need a few more ads before we can buy a company Aston Martin though.
    For info, the Concours was mentioned a couple of times in the May edition of The Greenwich Visitor (in an ad and in our free three-month listings). We’re available in local supermarkets every day for a month, handed out every day in Greenwich and we’re online at http://www.TheGreenwichVisitor.com Always worth finding a copy.

  3. Am allowing shameless plug because I would love to see a ‘company’ Aston Martin drving round Greenwich…
