It’s possible there’s no bigger fan of the James Bond franchise than one Mr. Ralph Garman. The man has dozens of signature Bond catch-phrases permanently imprinted in his mind. Asking him to recite a line from a classic such as Goldfinger, Diamonds are Forever or You Only Live Twice takes him but milliseconds to recount.

Recently, the fine folks at Sony Pictures made Ralph an offer he couldn’t refuse. They asked, “How’d you like drive around Bond’s $275,000 Aston Martin DBS for a day?” Ralph’s answer was not only instantaneous, but he followed with, “I have a tux to go with it too.”

A few days later, a beautiful, sparking 510 horsepower convertible DBS claimed the same parking space Ralph’s Ford Mustang normally resided.

Following the show that morning, Ralph embarked on journey that would would put his life in danger. For the day, he would live the life of his hero, “James Bond.”

Skyfall has not only been praised as the best 007 film yet but this weekend it took in an impressive $90 million, making it the biggest opening for a Bond movie ever. And for a series 23 films deep, that’s saying a lot. See it now in theaters everywhere.
