    The internet is your friend.
    Really j7 is this something that you're likely to go to? Don't you live in Texas?
    If you are going to attend, a quick look at the OP from James Page will link to the exhibition. Shouldn't be to hard to work out travel plans from that, or using a map find its location in the UK.

    I never been to a James Bond related exhibition.

    I read about the James Bond collection some of the MI-6 Members here have acquired over the years and I am amazed.

    I only have a few posters and the DVD movies and a couple of toys.

    Nice pics BT, thanks for sharing :)>-

    That T-Bird looks neat IMO, and I like the strange orange colour. It's easy to forget it was in the film.
