I have just watched Dave’s film and endorse everything he says about his “perfectly awful” car – cars are made to be used and his must be amongst the best of cars in original usable condition. I also have a MKIII which I purchased in 2007 in an “imperfectly awful” state, restoring it over a 12 month period for use as a long distance road/rally car. Since then I have covered over 65,000 miles in it and agree entirely that the MkIII is truly the best AM drivers car for all conditions and a huge credit to Claude Hill, Willie Watson (who designed the original engine for Lagonda when it was owned by WO Bentley) David Brown the entrepreneurial head of Aston Martin and Frank Feeley the design genius who provided the perfect bodies for the pre-war Aston chassis (modified for better rigidity by Ted Cutting) taking it well on into the post war era. I attach a picture of my car from which you will note the only external modification being the removal of the bumpers (fenders) which gives it a more sporty appearance as well as revealing the perfection of the design! Oh dear, no photos as I couldn’t master the technology on the site!
