The Centennial Celebration on the 21st July is a joint event between the AMOC, AMHT, AML Ltd which I am honoured to Chair on behalf of the Club.
As you are aware, this year we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the incorporation of Bamford and Martin, the company that was ultimately to become the company we know today.
- Many of these cars are from overseas collections and have never been seen in public.
This will be a one-off spectacular event. If you’re not really passionate about Aston Martin, you’ll stay at home, whinge about the cost of parking and forever regret not being there.
It is a pleasure - at long last - to be able to say something positive about this event, Mark.
I have congratulated you before on your efforts and am very happy to repeat the praise. This event must have been a real headache to 'chair' (the phrase 'herding cats' comes to mind, just for openers).
My own severe reservations about all these 'celebrations' have been based very firmly on the ludicrous stance of AMHT on the subject from their inception. I am delighted to note that you flag up very firmly what this event is actually
celebrating, rather than the bogus tosh that was handed down to us in such imperious fashion by AMHT representatives and certain others in the 'My bottom' thread all those months ago.
Thankfully, we appear to have got finally to somewhere close to where we should have been in the first place. There have been some small 'up sides' to all the blood-letting, I suppose, and I would point to the failure of one man to win the AMOC Chairmanship as an example.
But, how nice it would have been if matters could have been otherwise.
Just to return to your most recent post, may I ask you, please, to answer the discrete question I posed last night, re the precise involvement of AML at the daytime event.
Again, well done re your efforts.
