Why this car?

When I watched the third James Bond Movie GoldFinger staring Sean Connery I fell In love with this car and all the gadgets. Now I know I can't have the gadgets but I would like the car. Why? Well I will tell you kids today want something fast and cool and expensive well That;s nice and all but I want something with a story something that's been around for a while. I wanted a car with class and style something that that ask you who is driving this and can I meet them? A Gentlemen car if you will (BTW's Gentlemen are out their but they are dying off, Bernie Mac said it's a man's job to respect a women, but it is a women job to give him something to respect.) And this car is something that just says the ways of old are not out of style.
