I am a huge fan of the BBC's Top Gear, a program strictly about cars. Through the many seasons of the show, one car in particular has stood out and become my dream car: the Aston Martin DB9. The DB9 is exceptionally made, handles well on roads, looks spectacular, and is simply amazing. Of course, I only know this from watching TV. However, things are about to change. I emailed Aston Martin to request a test drive of the DB9. Unfortunately, the nearest dealership (in Bellevue, WA - almost 3 hours away from me) didn't have any DB9's in stock for a test drive. Working with the sales department, I have arranged to test drive the Vantage Roadster. While not exactly the DB9 and often referred to as a baby Aston, the Vantage still looks exceptional. We'll see if I like it as much as I hope I do. Updates to come after next week's test drive. Yes, they agreed to it!
