Near our premises in Huddersfield a man was born and bred called David Brown, he owned a company called David Brown Tractors based in Meltham. Apart from the thousands of tractors that were built there and sold all around the globe, he also purchased a failing car company that was called Aston Martin and also another company called Lagonda.
Most of us have heard of the beautiful DB5 which is the car made famous by the James Bond films. Well David Brown is the 'DB' in the DB Aston Martins!!!
Although Sir David Brown passed away in 1993, his legacy still lives on today in his DB initialled luxury sports cars.
The DB Tractor Club informed us they were having a photo shoot at the original David Brown Works with one of the very first tractors built there as well as the last ever to roll off the production line & asked if we could loan them one of our Aston's to complete the line up.
Now although we were clean out of the DB models, we jumped at the opportunity & were honoured for them to choose a fabulous V8 Vantage Roadster in Toro red (to complement the tractors).
