    Getting Married!

    Hello all!

    I am getting married in June! My fiancÚ and I are very excited for our new life together! We are in the thick of planning for the wedding. Let the stress begin!

    However, one thing that I want for my wedding is a classic car to have for pictures / send off vehicle. Me being such a car guy, I couldn't imagine my wedding without it. Whats unfortunate, is I do not own a classic car at this time for this purpose. Nor do I have any relatives with such a vehicle resting in the garage. We sold the Z8 a couple years ago.

    I wanted to post this up you inquire if anyone here, or knows anyone, who is willing to have a classic car to ride or drive for the night. I am willing to compensate. Like most guys here, I am more of a sports car guy. I love the old Austin Healeys, MG, and the like. However I am also open to other suggestions.

    I have tried classic car dealerships but they are mostly all consignment cars and do not have options to rent.

    Let me know if you can help!

    Thanks!

    Firstly congratulations!!

    Classic rental is a hard one for sure, you could try some of the cinema vehicle companies, and I know there are classic rentals in Vegas, but that could get super costly unless you drive it back to Vegas to start your honeymoon! Good luck with it!

    I'm located in the Bay Area 45 minutes east of San Francisco. Yes, I have been reaching out to some local clubs. This site is one of them. This has turned out to be a harder search than previously thought!

    There is something about the romance of a vintage vehicle. I saw an 50's Buick, and love the look of the big American stuff too.
