James Bond’s quarter-million-dollar Aston Martin took a bath in Italy’s Lake Garda yesterday when a stuntman drove the wheels off a cliff. The problem is… it wasn’t a stunt.
The car was reportedly the same Aston that was used in the last Bond flick, “Casino Royale,” and was the only one available for use in the new movie, “Quantum of Solace.” Meanwhile, the stuntman was quickly rescued and was not hurt. The next installment rolls out this fall.
I sold a manufactured house for a quarter-million dollars once — closed the deal while sitting at their dining room table. I can’t imagine that much money sitting at the bottom of a lake. Of course, I can’t imagine spending that much money on a car either.
