One of our ChipsAway franchisees got more than he bargained for,when he was asked to help with some maintenance work on an AstonMartin DB5 which was driven by Sean Connery during filming as JamesBond.
Rob Stewart, who runs ChipsAway in Marlowe, was recommended by abusiness colleague to help with the restoration of the car ahead ofits UK tour and auction in Monaco. He spent four hours working onthe £280K car which was completely restored during 2010/11.
The DB5 featured in GoldFinger and Thunderball, and is one ofthe most famous cars of all time. Complete with bullet proof backand front windows, battering rams and an ejector seat, this is theultimate accessory car for a slick operator such as James Bondhimself. A silver DB5 is also rumoured to have been seen nearto the filming set of the latest James Bond movie, Skyfall, so itis anticipated that the car may well be making a reappearance.
Rob who has nine years experience in the minor automotive repairindustry said:
"It was an honour to be asked to work on such a beautiful andiconic car. The job took four hours with eight people watching andinvolved me having to get in the boot at one point, not bad for aseventy year old! I am eagerly awaiting the release ofSkyfall and will be looking out for Daniel Craig behind thewheel."

I am writing you from Toronto, Ontario where I live with my husband and 4 monthold daughter.
I grew up in Canada but my grandparents lived for 50 years in Bourne End and each summer they would bring me to Marlow where I would play in the park and have tea at Burgers. I have been visiting Marlow every year for 39years! These are some of my happiest childhood memories and I decided to name my daughter Marlow. The Toronto Star newspaper recently did a piece about how my daughter got her name and we thought you might be interested:
