No!

This is one of those, where you have an italian speaking friend establishing contact per email, and you then follow up immediately on the response.
And you cannot discuss for too long, and try to find the funds, and discuss giving your car in part exchange.
You come quickly with the money, and make your decision on the spot.

Only 2 previous owners!

If only I had the cash! I have a feeling they aren't going to stay at this sort of price for much longer.

No, you'll look back one day and weep. Anyone who has the money, room and know-how, buy one. Reminds me of coming close to buying a DB6 for around 4500 in the early 80's. There were lots around at that price and I was seriously considering it. In the end I didn't, only because I lived in east London and didn't want to keep it out on the road. So I spent the same amount on a modern. Within a few years, in the speculating boom, they had reached 150,000. In the end I began to think maybe I was hallucinating about this 4500 price tag until one day I found an old car mag I had from 1984. Had a look and there they were - Aston Martin DB6, 4500. I can barely bring myself to type it..............

Of course, I could only have driven it until something went horribly wrong and then faced with an Aston Martin bill, would probably then have sold it for a loss!

The Flaminia looks beautiful.
My 'Aston' story is that I came very very close to buying a DB4 in Shepperton from a dealer in 1971 for 895! There appeared to be nothing wrong with it but in the end I took the 'safe' option and bought a 3 year old low mileage TR5. Within 6 months it needed 2 new rear wings as they had rusted through, the head gasket went and the differential chassis mountings couldnt cope with the power so they kept on fracturing. It nearly bankrupted me so jacky had to move in to help with the mortgage on my maisonette (what are maisonettes  called now?) and the rest is history as they say.

My friend David at European Classic cars told me that he has a 2.8 Flaminia Saloon arriving this week.

I shall go and have a look when it's there, although I really want to see the Lamborghini tractors he has for sale!

Chris - I was living in a 'maisonette' at the time I was considering an Aston. I'm sure estate agents have now thought up a more desirable word. David Honeybun at European Classic Cars is a good chap. I visited him near Swindon a couple of times for Fulvia bits before he went 'full time' so to speak. I spoke to him once about a 124 Spyder he had and he gave me a very honest appraisal of it over the phone. He seems to dig out some very nice cars.
