And the bride drove a...

It's been a busy week. This week opened for me in the small town of Sexton's River, Vermont, at my brother's wedding in a small church. It was a very lovely wedding, with all sorts of personal touches. The sermon brought almost everyone to tears, and just about everything at the ceremony and reception, from the minister to the locations to the wine, had personal significance to either Philip or Amanda. But I suspect most regular readers of this blog are not going to be especially interested the details of the bride's handmade shawl that her mother knitted (although I'm sure you all will agree that this was the sort of touch it's hard not to say, "Awweee..." about...).

Luckily, there was one detail that I'm sure all you car guys reading this will love. After the ceremony, the bride and groom left in a breathtaking 1931 Packard sedan - with the bride driving. The Packard belongs to her father, who has treated it to a meticulous restoration.

All in all, it was a very lovely wedding. And we got to see a very pretty town, New England's famous fall foliage, and, of course, a very impressive car.

Philip and Amanda, I wish you the best of luck in your marriage.


Its a pity the Gold Lady broke at the last Packard show. Just imagine the radiator top in gold rather than silver and you've got it.
