    I went over my dad's the other day and over to the garage where he keeps all his cars (he owns a car business). Whilst I was over there I noticed an old rusty up looking mercedes at the back, the front is hanging off and it's in need of some TLC. The thing is, the car was a spitting image of a car my Grandad had when I was a little girl, he died when I was 9 and even to this day whenever I see a mercedes it reminds me of him. Anyway, I get back to my dad's house and I said to him "Dad, that car at the garage isn't grandad's car by any chance is it?" to which he replies "Yes, it's being in storage for 17 years, I was hoping to drive you in it to your wedding." As you can imagine I was pretty choked up by this, it means a lot to me that he will be there in some way on my wedding day. So here it is, apparently it's one of the original s class models and I think it will look lovely with white ribbon on it. This isn't the exact car, but I will post a pic on here when my dad has reconditioned it in all it's glory!

    Gemz that is so lovely, no wonder you were choked up! What a fantastic thought from your dad and what a wonderful way to get to your wedding and remember your grandad. xxx

    are you going to have it painted its original colour?

    because you could have it painted in your wedding theme colours.....
