Gardner's Cars

Anyone who has spent any time reading this blog or my posts at CBn know that I have a thing for the cars of the John Gardner era. Probably because I came of Bond-age in the '80s and owned a Saab 900 Turbo (license plate: "SAAB 007").

So I was pretty happy to nab this gem off eBay. This article from the September 4, 1985 issue or Autocar is all about Gardner's cars from Bond and before. I love it when he says, "I do like letting the horses out when the road is clear just to show them what the car will do." That sounds like the Gardner Bond voice to me. Anyway, this just arrived in the mail, so I thought I would share. Enjoy!
