From what I recall it is a very lush book which goes fantastically in depth. It's clearly a labour of love. I would say its on a similar level to the Helfenstein 'making of....' books and most definitely worth getting.
I was gratified to hear from you it is now worth a mint but a quick butchers on Amazon.co.uk shows it going for £20 which is I think what I paid for it originally.
Yes, and the postage costs by Royal Mail from UK to US are not bad at all. With a stronger US $ it's worth it. Also, the VAT is deducted at checkout. I actually bought myself a multi-region blu ray player, because movies are cheaper across the pond also for the most part, although they are on region 2 rather than region 1 coding. There are also movies released in the UK on blu that are not available on region 1 US..
If you're buying from a third party on Amazon.co.uk, rather than Amazon itself, then you have to make sure that they offer international shipping.
You are most kind I've just bought it.
Can you guess where I'm going ?.
Have fun! I do hope you'll see something of interest.
It's very interesting and deep. It contains the history of the DBV and how many cars were used in GF and TB, the promotion, the Royal car, the tours, the other two cars, and who own them "today".
My edition is from 1992, so sadly I miss all the Brosnan and Craig eras, that deserve another book.
Anyway, I found it very interesting and with good rare photos.
I found these gorgeous series of pictures (120 images of them!) whilst googling and want to share them with you if you haven't had the good fortune to see them.
Just click on a thumbnail for a full sized image!!
I've saved them ALL onto photobucket in case they're withdrawn off the original website:

Second batch to follow below!! These are immense and are really Bond 'automotive pornography' = excellent material for a great desktop picture! Which one of the 120 though!?
So buying one with film relations will cost absurdly high amounts, but apparently buying a new one isn't that expensive and just requires waiting time? And, of course, payment for the installation of electric windows and other potential "modernizations". But living in Australia, I doubt I can get one, since they're only made in the UK.
I had the pleasure of riding a 1971 (I think?) DBS (the same model as the one in OHMSS), though, and it was a fantastic ride. Still think the DB5 is much cooler, though.
