For all the museums throughout the world, it's remarkable that it has taken this long to create one devoted solely to James Bond, when even Britney Spears got her own permanent exhibit years ago. But the omission has been redressed, with Englishman Peter Nelson opening The Bond Museum tomorrow in Keswick, northwestern England.

Exhibits include the jet pack from Thunderball, the mini jet from Octopussy, the Cagiva from Goldeneye and, of course, lots and lots of cars: a DB5 (Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies), Vanquish (Die Another Day), Lotus Esprit S1 from The Spy Who Loved Me, and the 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 are part of 19 cars in total that will be on display. If you're in Cumbria this weekend, go get your Bond on, and don't forget to send us some pictures...

        The list says no. And btw, he drives a Mondeo in the film, which, in England, is not a rarity (although I've seen more 3-series and C Class and Audi A4s that them).

      The DB5 was originally in Goldfinger, not Goldeneye.

        And it looks pretty damn aerodynamic too. Why can't Toyota make a prius that looks like that?
