Bond car crashes into lake

Quantum of Solace movie stillA $250,000 car that was supposed to be featured in the next James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, crashed into a lake in Italy on Saturday on the way to the film’s set. The driver of the limited edition Aston Martin DBS was delivering one of five cars to the set when he lost control on a sharp turn and crashed through a safety barrier and into the lake below. The driver was able to free himself from the wreckage and swim ashore, suffering only minor injuries in the crash. He was released from hospital early Sunday. The car was later pulled from the lake, but the extent of the damage was not announced. Quantum of Solace will be the 22nd film in the 007 franchise and is due for release this November.

    Well, one would think that they would have such an expensive car “shipped” in, instead of having some lead foot drive it to the movie set! I’m sure that I am not alone in saying that if I was the lucky delivery person, I would open it up to see what it’s got too!!!!

    No No Nancy these cars are build to be driven! Driven fast and hard, what you need is a driver who is smart enough to know how!

    Never heard from you in a while Nancy. Where have you been?

    A couple deaths in our family. I kinda had a hard time, but I sign into Tribute every once in a while to stir up some doo-doo!! Thank you for asking. I noticed someone used my name on here the other day…but it was not in blue!! I think Arnold and Poppa John skipped the country…haven’t heard from them in eons!!

    Jeez, Nancy, I’m sorry to hear about your troubles. And you had surgery recently too, didn’t you? Well, your tribute family loves you (well, except maybe that brat, anonymous!) and we are here for you.
    I haven’t heard anything from Arnold or PJ lately either, and I think Karen is gone for good.

    Brat here; I may make snide comments about your comments but I never make snide comments about people’s hardships.

    Hope things get better for you, Nancy.

    Another we haven’t heard from in a looong time is Gina (who morphed into Gina Blue when the copycat started in on us all). Are you still out there Gina, checking in on us periodically?
