James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 Up for Auction

Originally, there were two DB5s used in the films; however, the other car was stolen in 1997.  Authorities believe this other DB5 was destroyed.

It’s no surprise that the DB5 will fetch so much at auction, but the high estimated price tag can put despair in the hearts of most regular Bond fans.  After all, if you’re not a super spy, chances are good you don’t have that kind of money just lying around.

So what’s a regular guy or girl to do?

If you living in the Dallas area, you can still drive your dream car.  It might not have a rear smoke screen and revolving license plates, but it’s sure to knock your socks off and make you feel like James Bond.
