A friend sent me the screen shot on Monday to let me know the Bond in Motion museum was at the end of its Time
I had tickets for last year after the film was originally due out, to see all the new NTTD cars, and we all know how that story ends.
I’ve put a link it to a couple of these cars and a couple of pics, but if anyone has any others please add them, at least I know I can look on here to remember this amazing place.

P.S. if anyone who works there reads this, I am more than happy to look after any of your displays for you!

    That was a great exhibition.
    I had pics but when my house was burgled I had them all snatched away with the laptop & usbs. I have the brochure still.
    I had no idea the exhibition was still going.

    It was a real treat to visit and was a must every time I was in London. The only drawback being it was fairly dark so you couldn’t get great shots of the exhibits.

    Sorry chrisno1 but someone nicking the usbs as well is a special type of scumbag.

    Wish I'd seen that but never got around to it.

    I wonder where the exhibits are now?

    This news did seem to go around Twitter and Instagram earlier this week, but I thought they announced their permanent closure months ago- before the summer or so.

    Yes, it was a lovely exhibition but the lighting was never great. Particularly on the DB5 which had a horrible flat blue light on it which did the bodywork no favours.
    Still, it was full of lovely things. I didn't see the NTTD display as I thought I'd leave it until after the film, which was obviously foolish in retrospect! :)
    I wonder where the exhibits are now?

    Some belong to Eon, so I imagine in storage somewhere; some are owned by private owners so on their way back to them I guess.

    Out of interest, when did the NTTD exhibits move in? I was in London end of February last year but was keen to get home early so didn’t go, might have gone had I realised they were there.

    You're not wrong !!!
    All my Fan Fiction, my reviews, photos, work correspondence, my Jon Drago novels (three of which were unpublished), all my poems. I have almost everything on hard copy, but its taken me a year to get around to typing it all again. Plus Covis and being unemployed again. 2020 was not a good year for me.
    My mates said, "Didn't you store it in the cloud?" but I'm old school and I thought backing up onto a 'working' and a 'back up' USB would be fine. As you say, what the hell are they going to do with the USBs? There wasn't even pornography on them !

    Back to topic...
    I found the brochure last night and had a lovely reminisce - I remember I virtually swooned when I saw Tracy's Mercury Cougar XR7 - a beautiful, low slung, sleek late sixties bird-puller. Wonderful

    Did anyone go to the Paris Motor Show exhibition of Bond cars in '96 or so? That was the first time I saw a really impressive collection, although quite a few were replicas.

    Yes, I caught that. Good stuff, I remember the DAF red Corvette (that's it, isn't it) with the coffin prop. Also the Sunbeam from Dr No. Not aware some were replicas.

    On a side note is the James Bond Car Collection still going? It went on forever, I imagine they'd bring out another Aston Martin DB5 but with a NTTD diorama.

    Mustang? I don't recall the coffin.
    I guess considering the Mustang at Bond in Motion was supposed to be the original (and in a pretty terrible state) the one in Paris was maybe a replica.
    Also the Sunbeam from Dr No. Not aware some were replicas.

    Yeah there were a few; annoyingly they weren't labelled either. I was never sure if the OHMSS DBS was the real one or not, for example. I think they probably had quite a few from Cars of the Stars, which would generally be real.
    The biggest clue was the LALD bus: it had the top removed but it was only the roof and not the whole top floor, as in the film! :)

    This is disappointing but not all together surprising news, would have loved to have visited in London having seen Bond In Motion at Beaulieu think before the Skyfall cars had been added? Would have loved to have seen the Skyfall and Spectre Vehicles although as to when we actually get to see No Time To Die and it's array of Vehicles is anyones guess.

    Let's hope they could open something a little more permanent like a permanent Bond Cars Museum - yes I know I'm asking a lot in these times but I'm only suggesting it.

    Perhaps set up in London's Vauxhall near the Mi6 building?
