Just this morning, Prince William and Catherine Middletown drive away in their green Aston Martin DB5 convertible. Such a wonderful scene it would be witnessing her being whisked away in such traditional manner. It caught my eye, because I do remember another more fictional marriage with James Bond (George Lazenby) and Tracy di Vicenzo-Bond (Diana Rigg) in the film “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”. Complete with ribbons and flowers watching the Brits sensational couple cruise away to their hidden honeymoon. Lets hope the press will reviews as it as romantic news.
This brought to my attention what might have been other unforgettable wedding cars, specifically Porsches that might have been used. I’ve come to realize that maybe there is something that has to be the most traditional in marriages, not between the driver and his car, but rather that “other wife”.
Now for the rest of you, there has been some rather good solutions, including renting a Porsche, should you want to make a statement. That mad dash ditching the shower of rice from the Church doors, down flight of steps, to a warm car has to be graceful to all the onlooking eyes. Could it be the perfect wheels adorned in red and yellow roses, a bash of tulips and silk ribbons might be another off to one’s honeymoon’s solution?

and finally the car, before guests and mother and law and so on. Just kidding folks. 😉
Its seems photographers might tend to gravitate to fancy cars with unique styling all because they do offer some reward. At the bride and groom rev up to red line, tires spin and the car takes off like a bat. One grins at such iconic thoughts but I am sure it rests in everyone’s mind. One of course then hope that you not have to be mishap by the local highway patrol but hey..what are those chances anyways?
There are certain kind of rules on how to adorn any car with flowers and ribbons, where symmetry is good, along with an eye for contrasting/complimenting colors. The better the contrast, the better you can you glaze one’s eye on the paint. Be sure too that you’re not so carried away that you can’t get into the limited trunk space and or the passenger and driver side doors. Visibility isn’t super important, because, anyways, one’s eye should be glued to their new spouse. There has been a certain keen prospect were you might be caught with a low fuel tank or need to check the darn oil, so too.. as ones Porsche get wrapped, certain levels of mechanical access is well spoken for.
Everyone has a special identity to films like “The Graduate”, “The Godfather” and even “Harold and Maude” where matrimonial outcomes have the cars as actors. Should a little bit of each of us be identified with that charasmatic attribute, we might think of other more famous films where Porsche is involved. Sadly.. I don’t think they exist. Apparently, for the most part, film writers rather think of Porsche owners in two categories, forever single and one being a born lead foot. That romantic getaway with your Porsche and your new bride is simply not in the silver screen. In desperation of providing some kind of good material to research on the subject, I then looked into any celebrities that might have used a Porsche to tie the note. We.. to no avail, it seems as of now, this particular subject is one sided for now.
As for the Prince and Princess, we here at A. Bauer Repair, Oakland, California wish them and their new families the joy and love they can have with their friends and the world. It still makes me wonder what they might have looked like had it been a Porsche. Makes you wonder if they own one tucked away in Windsor Castle, England?
