MONTEREY, Calif. -- Aston Martin finally comes in black.
Ulrich Bez, CEO of Aston Martin Lagonda, said the automaker posted an operating profit in the first and second quarters. The profits are the first that Aston Martin has posted since the early 1960s, the company said.
Bez declined to give a figure here at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
With the introduction of the DB9 and V8 Vantage coupes, Aston Martin expects to sell about 5,000 units worldwide this year. In 2004, Aston Martin sold 2,400 units.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
