Wedding Car ...Driver...?

Recommended Posts

I built or "restored " my 1940 Plymouth for one reason... My Daughters wedding day..

Well that day is coming soon! July of this yr.. 2011

I plan on using it to have her driven to the Church and also I was planing on picking up my parrents... maybe Godparents etc...

I was wondering if "others " did this and thought of having "Someone " else drive your car you restored /

Or did or would you be the "only one to drive your car that special day"

Thanks for your comments... Daniel

I'd ask your daughter first. It's her special day. She might not think it's as special without you in the car, or want the car without you.

Yes....be sure and ask your daughter. I have tre girls,and only one wanted the old McLaughlin. My youngest chose to have a Rolls at Niagara Falls Ontario instead.

Also,if it is a convertible be sure that the wind is no going to mess up the

expensive hair .

I have done this with my 1936 Dodge Brothers touring sedan. Loads of fun and the "other" driver was very careful with my car.

Having paid for two weddings, my recommendation is to sell the car and give your daughter and the boyfriend $5,000 each and a Hawaiian honeymoon if they'll elope. It will be less stressful and less costly! :D

if you you use another driver make sure you educate him on the floor starter (I had a P12). The photographer will love the "prop." Have a back up car ready just in case - "70 year old car fails to go" is less of a problem than "bride does not arrive at church." Threaten best man with removal of vital parts if "unapproved decorating" happens.

That said , use it if the couple want to - I did and had a lot of fun.
