Everyone knows that March is the month of green, mainly because of St. Patrick’s Day. For the whole month, you won’t be able to get away from the color as most restaurants, grocery stores, and other local businesses dress up their interior with anything green, including their products. Green is also the first sign that spring is right around the corner. Unfortunately, this is not so for those in the New England area lately, yikes! March boasts the color green as everything comes back to life after winter.
Aston Martin DB5
When Goldfinger came out in 1964, not only was it arguably one of the best Bond films presented to the world, but from it one of the most iconic cars of all time was born. Known as “the most famous car in the world,” fictional, super spy James Bond debuted his Aston Martin DB5, which was riddled with gadgets that were not only revolutionary for the time, but gadgets that were also incredibly cool. A revolving license plate was one of the iconic key features to the car as it helped Bond travel through all the necessary countries on his mission undetected, but it certainly wasn’t the only one. Other gadgets in Bond’s Aston Martin included a GPS dashboard, tire slashers, a smoke screen, a rear bullet-proof screen, machine guns embedded in the front of his car, and most famously, an ejector seat. While many of these features were nothing more than science fiction at the time, they still helped the DB5 become the car of many car fanatics dreams, and over time even inspired some features, such as a modern day in-dash GPS system that many now consider standard.
