Interesting.

Has anyone thought maybe, the owner had his own car “stolen” to collect the cash from the insurance company?! Note he didn’t need to the money, but he sure profited. 🤨

Kind of a waste of time TBH

This podcast is more of a nostalgic walk down memory lane regarding Bond’s Aston Martins DB5 vs. a podcast about what happened to the vehicle. The true crime portion of the podcast could have been wrapped up in 2 episodes while the remaining time (6 episodes) is dedicated to historical information and personalities that had some poignant sound bites. As a true crime fan, this podcast was disappointing. If I wanted a history lesson, I would have gone to Wikipedia

Too Many Episodes That Go Off in Tagents

The series starts off well, but by episode four, they take deep dives into side topics like the DB 5 toy, how the car inspired custom modifications. This series could have been an entertaining, tight, four episodes.
