Long standing client & dear friend of Aston Workshop, Ron Powell was recently on site to take possession of a stunning sterling silver replica of his pride & joy.
Ron has resided in the Middle East State of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates since November 1977 and the model was commissioned to celebrate Rons recent success at the Emirates Classic Car Festival.
He is Aston through and through and was particularly pleased to fly the Aston Martin flag and receive a special award at the ECCF.
Over the years Ron has acquired a lovely collection of classic Aston Martins including a brace of MKIII that he lovingly refers to as the brothers (soon to be featured in a Vantage magazine article) . He believes passionately that these classic beauties are meant to be driven and not just hidden away, as a result he can regularly be seen driving one of his treasured Astons to classic events, track days or just for the sheer joy of it!
He was presented with the model by another good friend of Aston Workshop, Gil Holt of Anthony Holt Ltd, one of the worlds leading silversmiths.
