The Schödel Collection: The Most Comprehensive Collection of Aston Martin and Lagonda Related Items in the World
By Sharon McLellan
 

The foremost collector of Aston Martin and Lagonda memorabilia, Ulrich Schödel, has published every collector's dream, a book composed almost entirely of every piece of Aston Martin and Lagonda literature, factory records, posters, manuals, model cars, toys, books and memorabilia in his collection. We don't have an exact count, but there are 190 pages in the book with 25 images on each page. And — a sidebar for the diehard enthusiast — he notes in the preface that he has a gold crown (in his mouth) with the Aston wings engraved on it!

I wish that I could tell you to run out and buy a copy because I suspect that the book would sell out in record time. Unfortunately, Mr. Schödel self-published only a few copies for the purpose of selling his entire collection. The following are sample pages of what you would see if you had the book in your hands:
