We are so excited to share with you, the purchase of our new lavish limousine!
You may be surprised to learn that this limousine once started out as an American Ford Excursion, basically a 4x4. It was then cut in half, stretched by 140 inches and shipped over to the UK – just like that! Once it reached the UK, by law, it could be used to carry up to eight passengers although there was space for 16. So, the limousine went back into the garage to be worked on so that it’s build was in-line with EU regulation rather than American legislation.
Once the seat belts were fitted, emissions were checked, the dimensions and support inspected there was only another 48 points to get right and tick off the list. Not so easy eh? They did it though, the limo was awarded its COIF (Certificate of Initial Fitness).
The lavish limousine was fully refurbished last year; new plush black carpets to accentuate the colour changing dance floor, grey quilted seating outlined in black and refitted LED lite bars holding our lavish Champagne flutes. The icing on our cake is the state-of-the-art Bluetooth system allowing you to connect your phone.
Since it’s been in our hands we’ve had it inspected mechanically (simply routine, and the law), it’s been lovingly washed, waxed and polished ready to share with those who like to party in a different kind of way! We love our lavish limo and look forward to sharing our pride and joy with you and your guests.
If you wish to look at the limousine then just get in touch – we’d love to show you round
I started Cool Camper Weddings in August 2016 after being made redundant from working for a large corporate company for 14 years, I decided to do something a little different. My husband and I have owned a 1972 VW bay window for approx 13 years (Bertie bus) and have had many a happy adventure in him. I decided that it would be great to have a job working with VW's and so hence the wedding transportation business was born after purchasing Rita in June of 2016. I absolutely love driving Rita and also enjoy the admiring glances and smiles she raises from people as you drive by. For me, to be part of such a special happy occasion for two people is an amazing feeling!
Rita...1966 gold split screen
Rita is our stunningly beautiful 1966 VW split screen camper and she is absolutely perfect for wedding transportation. She was imported from California in 2011 and was refurbished specifically to be a wedding vehicle. We purchased Rita from a gentleman in Manchester who had been doing weddings but due to ill health had to sell. Once we had taken delivery of Rita we decided that she had to be completely safe to transport the happy couple so we changed the drum brakes to disc brakes for safety and we invested in some Porsche pattern Fuch X5 alloys. We understand that apart from Rita needing to be in absolute tip top condition aesthetically, she also needs to be in tip top condition mechanically and so we have an amazing VW expert locally who specialises in restoring and maintaining VW camper vans and is on hand for anything that needs looking at.
Bertie...orange 1972 type 2 bay window
Bertie is our 1972 type 2 bay window. Bertie was built in the Wolfsburg factory in Germany sometime in July 1972 and imported to the UK in August 1972. He spent most of his life around Keyworth in Nottingham. We acquired Bertie in May 2004 at the VW show at Stamford Hall from a VW enthusiast. We have had some excellent holidays in Bertie bus but he has taken a bit of a back seat since children came along. We have always kept him in tip top condition and in the last couple of years had him re-upholstered and towards the end of 2016 we had the Porsche Fuch wheels added so that he matched Rita. Bertie can also be used for wedding transportation.
