DSB’s cars

1963avanti.jpg

In 1963 Shirley bought an Avanti in the USA and had it shipped home.

It might look odd now, but at the time it was an exotic beauty.

The Avanti was made by Studebaker in the1960’s.

It was a very popular car with celebrities – Sinatra had one.

Here are two images of other cars DSB has owned.

My favourite is the above 1970 Aston Martin DBS.

Chevrolet Corvette (or Corvair?)

I read that DSB owned a White Jag around 1957.

There were other cars, but these were the most fun.

 

Los Angeles speculation 4

Here’s an update from my spy in Los Angeles about the Grammys.

As previously stated, the song Goldfinger is being inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame during the annual Awards ceremony on February 8th at the Staples Center in LA.

“Just a quick update:

The Writers Guild of America has pledged NOT to picket the Grammy Awards.

It appears the show will go on.

Now, we have to see if Shirley will attend, and, more importantly, sing “Goldfinger”.

Loved the photos of the Las Vegas chapel!

I wonder if the fact that Judy Garland got married there had any influence on Shirley’s decision to marry there, also.”

Thanks for keeping us informed. We don’t know if DSB is still in LA.

She might have gone home to Monaco # for all we know #
