There’s something about seeing an old car cruising down the highway that just makes everyone smile – complete strangers pull up beside you to give you the thumbs up, people happily toot their car horn or wave.
Growing up, we were constantly surrounded by old cars. We spent many a weekend dressed in poodle skirts and bobby socks for local car shows. Heck, most childhood memories of my Dad involve him in the garage tinkering on one of his cars. I guess an appreciation for things of the past is just engrained in me. It’s true what they say, they just don’t make ‘em like they used to.
That’s why I think it’s so cool when brides choose to use a vintage car as their get-away vehicle. They’re just so fun! Seeing a bride and groom hop into an old car and pull away from the guests with a stream of cans rattling behind it is just so charming.
For that reason, I’m so excited to introduce you to this pretty lady! You’ve seen her in last year’s Summer in the South shoot, and now that she’s been spiffied up a little bit, we couldn’t be happier to officially welcome her into the family! (The car, not the girl, silly!)
This gorgeous 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air is such a fun car. With it’s flashy turquoise and white colors, you can’t help but smile while you’re cruising down the road.
Whatcha think? Wanna go for a ride?
