    Finally it is ready! ;-)

    After six month of work it is finally ready. ;-)
    Can't wait to get my hands on it (it is still in the UK at the moment).

    Lovely car. Looks similar to the Almond Green color we all liked on that AM racer at LS a few weeks back. Wonderful color.

    That is one of my all time favorites, ever. You have outstanding taste in cars! I know you're excited to get it in your garage.

    Oh boy, more shots of that terrible red Zagato, what a mess!!!

    The One-77 looks much nicer, but still a little austentatious for my taste, not that I could afford one anyway.

    Nice shots Kieth, thanks for sharing!

    Nice! Great colour.

    I have a 67 DB6 Vantage LHD in a champagne gold color (not sure what they originally called it). Not driving it much these days as it's in LA and we are on the other coast...

    I'd be interested to hear your initial impressions after you've driven it.

    Agreed!

    The DB4 GT Zagato is a bit special though- I prefer it the green that is similairm to KOTs DB6.

    By the way, if you need someone to excercise the DB6 in LA let me know! ;-)

    Andrew, I have no idea what is the paint code, but I would try to get it from them.
    It was the original Aston's color, they used for the experimental cars and for the prototypes.
    I would probably be able to get my hands on it in two weeks, and would immediately post my impressions and probably some more photos. :-)))

    We all have our "one that got away" stories. I had a chance to buy a DB4 for 88k CHF (roughly 50k USD at the time) about 10 years ago. I didn't have the resources back then, though. I cry myself to sleep at night thinking about it.

    I hear you. I was offered a McLaren F1 for $1m back in 2000. I thought it too expensive- and it was for me- but man oh man...

    As it should be. There is no beating the V12 arrangement and B **M** W has those initials for a reason.

    But getting back to the original post- that DB6 is just amazing.
