B148 – A £200K ASTON MARTIN

Bank holiday Sunday, in Norfolk was a proper Bank Holiday, spent eating food and drinking beer, before the food started there was a classic car show on the cliffs. where a load of classic cars meet up to basically show a little piece of history.

The best thing I saw was the radio club, talking in morse code to someone in Tokyo, Japan! but was we got into to frequency levels and all the dots and ders, I was a bit lost. its quite cool to this though that theres another way to contact someone on the other side of the world other than using the internet, these guys are using frequencies! its a pretty cool skill, it makes me want to learn Morse code for absolutely no reason at all, a part from that fact I can use it at a classic car show.

on a cooler note, there was the new Aston Martin Vanquish S a 200 MPH, 0 – 60mph in 3.5 second car. it comes with a v12 engine and produces 595bhp, but dont worry because with all that you get 14.1 miles to the gallon. With all those little carbon fibre parts aswell this car weighs, 1739kg. Now I know nothing about cars, I little got all this information from the Aston Martin Website, I just know that 595bhp, Ive been 130mph in a BMW and that felt fast, so 200 in a Aston Martin must be insane.

Any way, heres a few photos from the classic car show, it was definitly worth a visit and this weekend has really made me want to get a car again, dont think it will be an Aston Martin though.
