When I was a kid, my brother and I had these car-themed playing cards. That was the first time I saw the Lagonda and was wowed by it. Never thought I’d see one in real life.
I recently took my car to Kah Motors (the Honda agent in Singapore) for a routine servicing. Across the road is Malayan Motors, the agent for Jags and Bentleys (drool). Whenever I take my car for servicing, I routinely cross the road, enter the showroom and gawp at whatever Bentley is there.
This time, there in the carpark outside the showroom sat this majestic Aston Martin Lagonda. I just assumed it belonged to the owner of the Malayan Motors dealership. In retrospect, I should’ve gone into the showroom and asked – point blank – whose Lagonda that was. I could’ve met the owner.
Oh well…no point crying over spilt milk…
