How to finish the summer season on a high note, Following a visit to the Aston Martin Heritage Centre to have the air conditioning serviced on this rare beast and get it working it still had problems with a blockage in the system, hence the a/c still did not function correctly. We were Goggled and found, to the owners disbelief he lived in the same town as us and did not have to travel far.

These “585” engined cars were notable for their flat bonnet line and were the final development of the model.
