A graduate of Melbourne University, motoring journalist David Dowsey initially came from a musical background. He has had a genuine and passionate interest in Aston Martins for many years after first coming into contact with the marque through the famous Corgi toys. His profession allows him to sample the latest and greatest motoring products, and as a long-time owner of an Aston Martin he is well-placed to present this comprehensive study of a vital period in the brand's history. A member of the Guild of Motoring Artists and Australian Autuomotive Artists, English-born Mike Harbar is passionate about cars and drawing them. He has drawn the lot, from AMR-1 to Zagato. Since moving to Australia in 2000 Mike has continued his work as a freelance car artist with thousands of customers worldwide, producing artwork for magazines, car specialists, club events, race teams, corporations and private enthusiasts.
