    My daughter was married this fall.
    Pretty big wedding with lots of friends and family.

    You did not think for a minute I would pass up the occasion to show off the hotrod ;)

    Wish I had a few better pics but it sure looked good in front of the church :cool:

    No, that's nice. Next time, have the photographer back up a bit to get the whole car in frame. Oh, and get that guy to move from in front of it :D

    Congrats on the daughter. Having two of them, that's a day I'm not looking forward to, at all. Do you like the guy? You can't let him know that if you do, though.

    One of my Daughters is getting married this spring. I was thinking of driving my Ranchero to that too. Wearing a tux in a old car is just cool.

    He said he had the truck..................:mad:
    I should have known better.

    Daughter's wedding definitely not easy on the old man:(

    On the bright side, I still get to see her almost every day.
    Fortunately, I get along with him fine.
    Good thing................they both work for me!

    Weddings are expensive, but grandkids are great!

    We used our 'Chero in my stepdaughter's wedding a couple of years ago, she and her new husband drove away from the reception in it at the end of the night. Pretty cool considering that my 'Chero used to belong to her great Grandfather! Her cousin is getting married next fall and may use it as well.

    My daughter got married 2 1/2 years ago. It was a 3 hour ride to the wedding. My wife made the wedding cake. If we had taken the Ranchero, the cake would not have made the ride, and I would now be living in my Ranchero

    Do those guys fish off of those platforms?.. Just wondering, I think I would, even if it meant pulling up a line a couple hundred feet..
