21st Birthday in my book. The prototype DB7 (engineless) was shown at the 1993 Geneva Motor Show - production cars were more than a year  away but they looked identical to the prototype. It now lives in the museum in Covenrty - so maybe they would like to show it.

Thanks Tim, but I have been reliably informed that this year we will be celebrating it being 20 years since the DB7 was first made available to buy taken from October 1994. As it has been explained to me, we do not normally celebrate a child's conception but it's birth.

So, the party will be for  the 20th birthday of the DB7 at S'stone this year and the 'official' 21st birthday will be next year.  DB 7 owners will have double the fun!

So why was the 10th anniversary of the DB7 held on July 6th 2003  ???

Anyway, what the heck just do it. Then the year after it will be time to celebrate 100 years of Aston Martin.
Still burning hydrocarbons just for fun!

John, I do hope so. I am in discussion with the SC organisers and it looks promising. Obviously I will let everyone know as soon as it has been confirmed.

;D

But seriously is this also like to end up a farce over which date is the best to celebrate this and it's contributions to the marque?

I may be wrong, but I get the impression the AMOC are relatively cool on this model and after a big year celebrating the centenary, appetite is maybe not there?

Obviously those of us who are fortunate to own and drive these cars appreciate and like them for all sorts of reasons. I gather from what I have read and heard, this model has a special place in the pantheon of cars that have had made a mark in automotive history. I personally think it will become a future classic for both it's beauty and possible rarity as numbers aren't that big (by some measures) and they don't make them any more.

If anything the centenary year showed us how much AM owners, DB7 owners very much included, enjoy taking part in events and displays . In my write up for AMN after the Regent Street Motor Show I identified what might be known as 'Timeline Fever' so lets keep that momentum going this year. We know there are lots of very proud - and quite rightly so - DB7 owners out there who deserve to have their anniversary celebrated as much as that of any other beautiful Aston Martin and as soon as I have details confirmed for SC I will let you know....give me a chance , its only January!

I have just received a very informative E mail from Jane in reply to my question regarding the Silverstone classic DB7 celebrations - without wishing to steal her thunder it sounds as if it will be a great weekend. Jane has had a meeting with Works Service yesterday and I understand full details of whats been agreed/planned will be published in March in the AMOC magazine. Suffice to say there will be a lot of focus on th DB7 with a Track parade and DB7 display on tarmac this year.

There is also a club code to use when purchasing tickets from the Silverstone website which gives you two adult tickets for the price of one and the all important infield pass for the display area.

Well done Jane ! Great stuff - cant wait.

This year the Aston Martin Owners Club will be joining forces with Works Service and the Aston Martin Heritage Trust to create an Aston Martin Village in a premier infield location with an all-weather level surface for the car display.  You will be able to sit and chat in our hospitality area and enjoy the company of the gathered Aston Martin community: catch up on the latest info from AMOC and Works Service and learn more about our history from the Aston Martin Heritage Trust.

We will be showcasing the timeless and elegant DB7, highlighting its important role in the development of the Aston Martin with displays of the classic models that preceded it and those that followed on and took inspiration from the DB7’s innovative styling and production methods. For those DB7s attending on the Saturday there will be a track parade with a certificate for the owner

WHATEVER YOUR CHOICE OF ASTON MARTIN, YOUR CAR WILL BE AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE DISPLAY

We want our Aston Martin fans from around the world to be able to come and enjoy a display of cars from vintage and venerable up to the latest supercars


If you would like to enter your DB7 in this special anniversary display: first  purchase your tickets using the Club code to get the Club Package of two adult tickets and an infiield car pass to the all important display area, then please let me know what edition of DB7 you have, full car details and your membership number and on what day(s) you will attending the show so that we can plan the best possible display for each day of the weekend: janenicholls2@aol.com

Full information on this event, including the Club code,  is available from the Home page and in AMN news.
