What do you do if your Aston Martin Vantage Volanté breaks down on Houston and The Bowery?

Billy Leroy, the proprietor of Billy's Antiques, passes along this anecdote from last night ... at the crossroad of the world — Bowery and Houston.

So this fellow has a $100,000 Aston Martin DBS 1984 Aston Martin Vantage Volanté that breaks down. As Billy notes, instead of calling a tow truck, the man decides to have a buddy tow him with a few feet of twine ...

As you might expect, it snapped.

So Billy was nice enough to lend the man a chain from his tool room at Billy's Antiques.

Billy notes that the man was kind enough to return the chain.

And the Ghosts of the old Bowery strike again.

1984 Aston Martin Vantage Volanté, not a DBS.

It is a Vantage, but the Volante would be the convertible version of the car.

This is a joke right?
