My friend used to have the original Corgi of this DB5 with the ejector seat, hubcap blades, license plate changer, moving bumper, pop-up machine gun and pop-up bullet proof shield. I always wanted one, but never did.

The Goldfinger car, not the two stunt ones, BTW, was the best looking DB5 - it was a slightly shorter chassis and looked more balanced. The best movie car ever.

Goldfinger -you schmuck! Screw Ft Knox.
You had Pussy Galore and Bond's wheels.
Some men just don't know when to quit when they are ahead.
