Default Help! I need a wedding car...(Amazon/164?)

Hi all.
I posted this in "lounge and introductions"
And was given a hint that different section of forum might give better results.
But, as I don't want to make multiple threads on same topic and turn the whole affair into one big mess- please, if you have any ideas, follow the link:

Thank you.

Nice one
But its still 150(ish) miles from me.
Someone just dropped me link to "the last Volvo of Chris Harts" that happens to be in Putney
I'll follow that one first.
Thanks anyways.

After I followed suggestion of Cherished, this matter seem to branch off a lil bit.
So in an attempt to bring it all together again:

Well...
I wanted to say big Thank You to everyone who was willing to come up with solution.
Especially to Robert (123GT-AMAZON), who pulled few strings of his own to organize transport for us..

Yet, last weekend, during "organisational meeting" with some friends, I learned that I just didn't give enough thought to whole idea.

Essentially, the ceremony starts 4pm 30th Dec.
By that time, in the middle of winter, it will be almost dark.
Therefore, the whole "WOW" factor of having a classic car will be wasted.
In addition- nobody can predict the weather. It may be nice.. Or we may have a severe drizzle if not proper bucketing.
I overheard somewhere that this is going to be the worst winter in 20-something years.

Add to the mix the distance your car/cars would have to travel (and You, as driver, too)..
And I just can't justify the effort that I'd be asking of You.

The new.. "plan".. we came up this weekend will be to focus on providing transport to these guests that will require it (few persons staying at hotel near us), and getting for us almost any car that is nice, white, and nearby. In the dark nobody will see the difference anyway.

So, once again
THANK YOU

And I will be seeing you on the road sometime.
