Aston Martin DB3S

I took these photographs at a rain-sodden Oulton Park at the Aston Martin Owners Club's Autumn Historic Car Races meeting in September 1992.
It's Jeffrey Pattinson's 1955 Aston Martin DB3S, chassis number DB3S/110,
A piece on the website says this about the Aston Martin DB3S Customer Cars:
'Following on from the success of the team cars, Aston Martin offered the DB3S for sale to wealthy enthusiasts for both fast road use and also of course for the race track. Introduced for sale at the 1954 Motor Show, the slippery Frank Freely styled DB3S was extremely expensive at £3684 inclusive of UK taxes; the fixed head coupe was an astronomical £4800. Twenty production cars were built in total, a figure which included the three fixed head coupes.'
