Surely thats not the only photo from the day?
We told as we arrived at the gates, that we couldn't even take photos outside! We were allowed photos in the reception area, but none of the factory. Most people are on their way to Wales, so photos may take a while to be posted.

Ah that's a shame.

Looking forward to my stint at the factory on 11 May and a nose around Bamford Rose the day before. Glad you guys had a great time.

Fantastic day. Thank you to John and then Yeti for organising.

Some highlights:
- Playing "put the face to the PH name" game. I was pretty bad, but got a few very easily smile
- Driving up from Beaconsfield in formation with a 4.3 V8V, another 4.7 V8VR and two wonderful V12Vs
- Seeing the work that goes into making one of our special cars
- Cumberland sausage and mash at the Halford Bridge
- Meeting the infamous JohnG1 and getting the backstory on his self-enforced PH exile
- Meeting self-styled "PH Bad Boy" Francis (Paddy328). His 'life partner' wasn't there, alas wink
- Seeing poor Ben's face every time he heard Jessica bouncing off of her rev limiter (in the first four gears) as Mike took another brave soul for a demo run
- And...the best part...after getting stick all day from Michael Gould about our inferior V8 Vantages, the perfect 50:50 weight distribution of a DB9 etc, being next to him in the car park as he tried to pull away with the handbrake on. Senility is a terrible thing smile

Only drawbacks were:
- The amount of workers in the factory standing around not doing very much! It was at the end of a shift, but was hoping for a bit more energy!
- The amount of red leather interiors being made up. I can only assume / hope they're for the lucrative yet tasteless Chinese market
- Not being able to carry on up to N Wales with the others due to commitment back in London

Oh and the drive from Halford back to Banbury on the A422 was epic, even in the wet. I love my car cloud9

Adam I was there also,,,,,,, did u not listen to the host's Aston's supply over 42 countries this means not everyone likes Black,,Silver and boring Grey we are all different,, and as regards the guy's in the factory working they explained the reason's,,, i slightly amazed at what do u want,, if they built flat out , then u would be moaning that Aston's build too many cars,,,

I saw u and i thought u could b a problem and u truly are,,,,just except it for what it is coz u buy a car does not mean u have shares in the company
