Yea, sure, Aston Martin sales are up 448%, but that might not even been the biggest news right now in the English town of Gaydon. The company has finally turned a profit, the first since the early 1960s. An earlier report from the same source said that it was the first profit in the company's 92-year history, but I imagine that's nearly unbelievable, even for the British car industry. But, still, forty-some straight years of losses? I can only guess that they've had some extremely sympathetic investors over the years. Thank goodness, since the persistence has paid off with some truly beautiful vehicles in the past few years.
