A new Aston Martin dealership is open for business at 5550 W. Sahara Ave., and a four-car showroom is planned for the fall. Here’s why you should care:

1) Consumer choice: For the same money—about $120,000—you may select from the average-priced Valley home or a new V8 Vantage.

2) If the cute little Aston Martin Cygnet ever goes on sale in the United States, you can motor around feeling vastly superior to Smart drivers, though you’ll spend a lot of time correcting people who confuse the two.

3) It says “We’ve arrived” much more emphatically than the unveiling of a bearing for a large Ferris wheel.

4) Vegas Seven staffers will finally have a place to get their cars serviced.

5) Who doesn’t desire an automobile with organic electroluminescent displays?

6) You’ll have the opportunity to use the term “monocoque” without getting slapped.

7) Pussy Galore.

For nearly a decade, Neonopolis has been a 250,000-square-foot nightmare on Fremont Street. At last count, it had a grand total of three tenants—Telemundo, Del Prado Jewelers and the Southern Nevada Museum of Fine Art. It didn’t help that the shopping and entertainment center spent much of the past two years without air-conditioning. But now Denny’s is on the way, marching in with its arsenal of sausage to help save Neonopolis and provide common downtown ground for Fremont Street Experience tourists and Fremont East hipsters.
