I think nearly all Aston Martins sold in Ireland went to UK at some later point. It would be a shame for this one to go.

Here's three I wouldn't mind getting.

Daily driver young timer for €1200 with a NCT

Needs an Irish reg but it's down in Cork so that's something. €3000.

Probably a money pit, but what the hell for €6000

Probably 90%.

Sadly, these cars seem to enjoy a better quality of life in England.

I don't know why this was put on Done deal yesterday for 39 grand when it just sold on Ebay today for €22,850 with reserve met last week.

Still, nice car.

A lot of them sat unsold for a long time. Friend of mine had an '98 one that had sat in the showrooms until it became something of a joke.

There was a lot of them sitting unregistered in Galway for some reason that I can't remember now.
