214 Wanted As Wedding Car

#1 Post by Mr Teddy Bear » Fri Jul 15, 2016 5:04 pm

A unusual but never the less charming request to borrow a 214 to get married in!

Can any of our Scottish enthusiasts help out?? :angel

Matthew Smith <mwesmith[at]hotmail.com>

Hi,

My first car was a maroon rover 214 sli from 1995 which I shared with my flatmate at the time. I am trying to find a maroon 214 sli that I might be able to hire/borrow for my wedding day in Crieff in Scotland in September that my old flatmate can drive myself and my new wife in from the church to the reception after the ceremony. Would you know of anyone who would be able to help out? I look forward to your reply

Kind regards

Matthew

Sounds like a job for Hammond :)

Scotland isn't that far from Swindon, really!

Maroon 200s were pretty rare when new as the pearlescent Cherry Red paint was a cost option.

Finding a 214SLi in this colour will be doubly difficult....

Would they be ok with another coloured R8?

Hmmmm, as far as I'm aware we have just the one poster from Scotland? I thought I would post this up anyway just to see if anybody popped out of the woodwork from North of the border.

Perhaps we could arrange for Hugh's beige 214 to have a '60 minute makeover' :laughing2

Don't think my car would be suitable wrong colour, wrong trim and 3 doors could be a bit of a hassle to clamber into with a brides dress on :laughing2
Saying that would be happy to help if they wanted! Crieff is not a million miles away from me :)
