Recently I had a great opportunity to have a Chat with Mike from Bamford Rose.
Many Aston enthusiasts might already know Mike from his popular YouTube videos “Forum Chat”. It was one of those videos that got me interested in what he had to share. I watched one, then two, and soon I was chain smoking them. They are a great source of Aston knowledge.
Mike would know. As you’ll learn in the video he was a Performance Development Engineer for Aston Martin for the DB9, V8 Vantage, DBS and V12 Vantage. He’s now fully devoted to Bamford Rose, an independent specialist workshop dedicated to Aston Martin’s. He’s been living and breathing Aston’s for over 17 years.
As I watched his video’s I inevitably had questions I wanted to ask. I started to think if I had questions, maybe all of you out on the Interwebs might have similar questions. On a lark I reached out to Mike and asked if he’d be interested in doing a Chat session with me where I could ask some questions and we all get to hear the answers. I was pleased he readily accepted the invitation.
During the discussion you’ll hear about his automotive background, his time at Aston, some projects he worked on, the formation of Bamford Rose, some of his top suggestions for owners, and a few of his personal favorites.
I’m no David Letterman when it comes to interviewing skills but I’ve done my best.
If you haven’t already subscribed to both channels, please do so you can get notified when new videos come out.
