Although I’m more of a fan of new cars than the classics, I definitely want this one:

For Thunderball, FMP 7B was fitted with the full complement of famous Bond ‘gadgets’ – by the Factory – that are seen onscreen, including machine guns, bullet-proof shield, revolving number plates, tracking device, removable roof panel, oil slick sprayer, nail spreader and smoke screen – all controlled from factory installed toggles and switches hidden in the center arm-rest.

Well It looks like I have until October 27th of this to win Powerball and make this baby mine. It’s Probably for the best that I can’t afford something like this because i’d probably get arrested for using one of the on board weapons. :P

The guy that is selling it is going to get a pretty sweet return on his money, considering he only paid $12000 for the car in 1969. Awesome how the auction website says it was displayed IN his home… sounds like a cool guy.  The proceeds from the car are being donated to a UK crime prevention program.

Asheville, North Carolina – Regional Airport police arrested a 23-year-old Ohio man who was carrying a handgun and listening to police radio scanners near the runway around the time President Barack Obama’s flight was leaving Asheville, according to investigators.

Joseph Sean McVey, 23, of Coshocton, Ohio, is charged with going armed in terror of the public, a misdemeanor, said Asheville Regional Airport Police Capt. Kevan Smith.

So showing up to “talk” to the president with a handgun, a fake ass police car, no valid license, and rifle scope dope is only a misdemeanor? I would have assumed it would be been treated a lot more seriously.   The article said McVey was just in the parking lot though, so I guess it wasn’t considered an imminent threat.

I also wonder why he was monitoring police frequencies, and had digital cameras mounted on his front and rear windows.  It would make sense if he works for a security company, because all that equipment would probably be standard in some company cars.
