Okay, this is Hollywood and one should expect such things, but on a quiet Saturday morning there was James Bond's car, the steel gray 1963 Aston Martin DB5, parked in the lot on the south side of Sunset Plaza the heart of the Sunset Strip. You remember this car from Goldfinger (1964) the car used in the film was the original prototype, with another standard car used for stunts. This one on Sunset Boulevard even had the 007 European plates. Was Bond around somewhere?
Trivia - the DB5 was used again in the next film, Thunderball, a different one used in the 1995 film GoldenEye (three different cars were used for filming), another was used in Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), and a DB5 was set to make a cameo in The World Is Not Enough (1999), but the scene was cut. Yet another DB5 appeared in Casino Royale (2006), this one with the steering wheel on the left side, unlike the previous British versions. As you see from the photos, this must be that one.
It's not the Goldfinger car no front-firing Browning .30 caliber machine guns behind the front indicators, no retractable blades in the tire spinners, no passenger ejector seat, no oil slick spray from rear light cluster, no smoke screen device from exhaust pipes but then you never know, as all that was hidden. On the other hand the first DB5 prototype used in Goldfinger was later stripped of its weaponry and gadgetry by Aston Martin and then resold and then stolen in 1997 from its last owner in Florida and is currently still missing. It's out there somewhere.
This one will do. By the way, Sean Connery, the original Bond, has a home, one of them, a few miles west in Century City. It is possible
no, probably not.
