We are Delighted to offer this remarkable Aston...
Our Latest Talking Heads Video discusses the world of Aston Martin with Steve, Nick & Neal joined by Publisher of Magento Magazine David Lillywhite & Hagerty's Dan Cogger.
This year has been another action-packed one for all of us, so we’re returning to our regular Talking Heads format discussing the world of classic cars, Astons in particular, with Nick and Neal joined by two knowledgeable and well-known members of the classic car community: author and publisher of Magneto magazine, event organiser and classic car champion David Lillywhite, together with coming man Dan Cogger. Dan is a key member of US insurance giant Hagerty’s UK team and is fresh from receiving the ‘Rising Star’ award from an international panel of judges at last month’s 2023 Historic Motoring Awards. Steve Wakefield, Aston Martin enthusiast and market commentator, was once again in the chair.
It proved to be a lively discussion that covered classic car events – our favourites, ones we missed, others to do in 2024 – through to the current state of the classic car market (Astons in particular), our ‘dream garages’, F1 and other matters of the moment.
The conversation flowed at Essendonbury Farm and subjects discussed included:
1. Nicholas Mee & Co at 30 – the year so far
2. Reflecting on current trading during a period of higher interest rates.
3. Which models attract the most attention right now?
4. Auction results can be misleading. Is there now a two-tier market?
5. And for David and Dan?
6. How do we feel about Aston Martin in F1?
7. The value buy? 2001-2007 Vanquish
8. HCVA. The Historic & Classic Vehicle Alliance
10. Two-car dream garage
In 2022 we closed the year with a special one-to-one interview with Nick, who reflected on a lifetime immersed in all things Aston Martin and looked forward to 2023, the year in which his own company, Nicholas Mee & Co, celebrated its 30th anniversary.
It still makes fascinating viewing, and you can watch it here. Talking Heads 2022
