First time owner - Pics

I couldn't be more thrilled especially to find my preferred color scheme! 2007 V8V 6MT; 24000 miles; only two previous owners and garage kept. Also the previous owner added the carbon fiber skirts, clear braw, tinted windows, professionally upgraded after market bluetooth with bluetooth audio and added spacers to the rear wheels. Found locally, which is almost unheard of especially one that meets up to my standards! I will say this Vantage is pretty close. Is it me or are these cars more prevalent on the West coast? Had the PPI completed at Aston Martin in McLean/Tysons Corner, VA and needs only minor maintenance, otherwise they said the car is pretty tight.

Longed for a 2009 but they are still pushing almost $60k so baby steps.

Looking forward to reading your posts and being apart of this very special and very elite club! Will also look rather pretty next to my red Firebird Trans Am you see in the background! Cheers!

Longed for a 2009 but they are still pushing almost $60k and as a first time owner the 2007 fits me just fine. I will work my way up.

I find it hard to take pictures that do this car justice. 2 dimensions just don't convey the presence that the car has, being so wide, low, and perfectly proportioned. I've found this angle, from the rear overhead, is the best I can take to relay what the car looks like in person, and it still doesn't really capture it sufficiently.

By the way- I contacted Aston Martin and for those who don't know they can actually email you a copy of your original MSRP window sticker! I asked and next thing I know I got an email with it! Pretty cool!

I'd have to contact the previous owner. The carbon fiber skirt goes around the entire car and over the rear. Really cool look. I know it's aftermarket but WOW! It looks like it came with the car as stock! Very impressive.

Looks very similar to this:

Haven't found the side skirts yet.....

Very nice! Let's see some more shots of that Trans-Am too.

Congrats on the new ride.
