Listen, this is a little awkward, but I’ve been working all day here in these blogmines for over a month now and not one of you has bought me a damned thing. I bust my back grinding out news and spittin’ hot takes for you, and you can’t even send over a fruit basket?
The 2019 Aston Martin Vantage is quite a dramatic departure from the relatively consistent styling cues of the last few decades of the company. The new look, especially the new grille, is controversial. But Aston Martin claims it was a matter of weight savings, of all things.
James Bond and Aston Martins go together like peanut butter and jelly. And Daniel Craig, who plays Bond, has an Aston Martin. Craig has also expressed some serious distaste at continuing work in the Bond universe in the past, but I guess he still likes Aston Martins? Anyway, his will be up for auction soon.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
Sir Roger Moore, the third James Bond, passed away this week at the age of 89. As a lifelong diehard Bond fan, I am extremely sad. Of course the only remedy is to remember him, and who can forget the iconic car chase from For Your Eyes Only?
This anecdote has been making the rounds following the passing of Sir Roger Moore at 89 yesterday. What a class act that guy was.
Sir Roger Moore, the third actor to portray James Bond and the longest serving in the role—and someone whose onscreen characters would make any gearhead jealous—has passed away at age 89 from a brief battle with cancer, according to his family.
If you’ve ever seen Goldfinger or basically half of the James Bond movies, you’ve probably thought about how neat the rotating license plate gadgets on the British superspy’s cars were. Too bad it doesn’t work out so great in the real world.
Beloved British car writer and collector Harry Metcalfe has added one hell of a vehicle to his garage: one of the ten Land Rover Defender SVX monster trucks made for that mountain chase scene in the last James Bond movie Spectre. Lucky for us, Metcalfe’s taking the opportunity to crawl all over it with a camera.
Ealier today we reported on a mysterious ‘Project Goldfinger’ we discovered during a tour of Tesla’s Nevada Gigafactory. Everyone including Elon Musk claimed to have no idea what it was, but I’ve got a few ideas.
I, unlike many Americans, enjoyed last year’s SPECTRE. I thought it felt very much like a campy late-Connery or Roger Moore James Bond film and it was fun when it wasn’t boring you to death. But then I found this 1990's Pepsi Max commercial, and now there’s no excuses.
I’ve been a huge James Bond fan for as long as I remember, and I grew up at an age where I was able to naively enjoy all six Star Wars films before realizing The Truth. With that in mind, this James Bond-style opening title sequence for The Empire Strikes Back has awakened my nostalgia forces.
Before Gary Powell had finished his question about the new Bond movie, I’d already said yes twice. Gary was a 007 veteran. In The World Is Not Enough, he perfected flipping the Q speedboat on the Thames by jumping a smaller vessel—wait for it—onto dry land.
Set aside some “you-time” really quick and just enjoy the flirtatious growl and sultry body contours of this poetically beautiful Jaguar C-X75 concept.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice comes out on March 25. While we wait for that, I’ve spotted something in the marketing for the new superhero film that ties Batman to James Bond in a very Aston Martin-y, very Jalop way.
I think it’s important to remember that even James Bond chose a BMW over everything else (in a huge multi-million dollar, multi-picture financing deal between the filmmakers) on BMW’s 100th.
