NEW BOND MUSEUM

NEW BOND MUSEUM
The fabulous Toyota GT2000 from the film You Only Live Twice remains one of the rarest of 60s sports cars. I've read that as few as 351 regular production cars were made, and only a couple of convertibles were produced for the 007 film. They are nearly impossible to find- especially if one is looking for one of the few in existence outfitted for the film with custom 007 gadgets and panels. Visitors to Keswick's James Bond Museum will see this rare bird- and more- when the museum makes its grand opening on April 5th. Other items on display include numerous Aston Martins, the Lotus/sub from The Spy Who Loved Me, and the Jet Pack from Thunderball. The exhibit list will take your breath away (and possibly cause drooling). Until we can actually see the original vehicles at the museum, I suggest we curb our cravings with Corgi's scale model below. Check the Commander Bond Network for full museum coverage.
