    What a shame... I wonder what happened? Did some moron forget to put the parking brake on and strap the car down... or did somebody even more moronic begin to lift the platform while it was still under the front end of the car!?

    Either way, I'd sure be pissed if that were my vehicle.

    If you look on the ground, you can see part of the lift broke......

    Bet that was a hard landing for whoever was behind the wheel taking it "off".

    At least the seat and steering wheel won't be dirty.

    Well... I was walking back from the gym at lunch today...
    And I saw a KERMIT GREEN Aston drive past me.

    I turned my head just to make sure that I was actually seeing that shade of green on that poor car.

    I'd rather have white.

    Re: How not to unload your Aston-Martin

    Its been proven over and over, just 'cause you've got money doesn't mean you've got taste...

    Somewhat in order
    Dark Grey, Midnight Blue, Black, Silver, maybe (and I mean maybe) Dark hunter green that that's it.

    No "classy" "British" car should EVER be painted white, electric green, yellow, orange, pink, purple...

    I agree. British Racing Green is acceptable, but black is the best color on an Aston.

    Re: How not to unload your Aston-Martin

    I used to work for a company that had a terrible owner who ran the place into the ground and ended up firing a bunch of people. The next week a brand new 911 was delivered right to our building which had an all glass front. If this would have happened at that time I seriously doubt I would have been able to contain my laughter.
