Snapshot, 1950s: What brought these Aston Martin DB2s out in the snow?

Given the level of rustproofing (or lack thereof) in the 1950s, it’s understandably rare to see an Aston Martin DB2 put to work in the snow – let alone two. But look closer at the picture, and you’ll find a valid reason…

The two gentlemen in the image have braved a snowstorm in order to visit a home-made pie restaurant. Judging by the build-up on their elegant Astons, it appears they might have stayed for a digestif or two to warm the bones. Now they’re faced with a dilemma: how will they get home to the comfort of an open fire?

You can find many now-rustproofed Aston Martin DB2s for sale in the Classic Driver Market.
