The Ultimate First Date Motors
Whether it manifests itself in the form of a silent car ride, or a limp hug at the end of the night, first dates are always an awkward experience. And here at Cherished, we think we know why.
For too long, we Brits have been playing the dating game like rookies. Where once we'd take our partners out for a moonlit ride in a vintage classic, nowadays a woman is lucky if she gets five minutes of conversation without her date checking their phone – and in our opinion, that just won't do.
Starting with the most important ingredient there is – the car - this Valentine's Day, it's time to head back in time and rediscover the lost art of dating.
Ferrari 250 GT California
It may only be February, but it's always sunny inside a GT California. Beautiful, rare and oh-so valuable, it's hard not to fall in love in one of the finest Ferraris ever made. Looking for perfection? Simply let the roof down, put on your favourite record and let the engine do the talking. Welcome to la dolce vita.
Aston Martin DB5
Ever wondered why James Bond always gets the lady? Maybe it's his dashing good looks, his winning personality or silky smooth charm? Nope – it's all about his awesome wheels. Complete with a license to thrill, the Aston Martin DB5 is the perfect ride for those looking to replicate Bond's form with the ladies.
Austin Healey 3000 MKIII
Nowadays, there's an abundance or cars slipping and popping their way across the UK. But despite the hefty number of vehicles on the road today, it can sometimes be difficult to stand out from the crowd – unless you're driving an Austin Healey that is! Curvaceous, petit and sexy, the 3000 makes the perfect first impression every time.
The car you drive says a lot about you as a person. So if you're looking to portray yourself as a strong, loud and fly by the seat of your pants kind of guy, look no further than the Lamborghini Diablo. Rock-up, swing open the gullwing doors and allow her to take it all in – there's no chance she'll be forgetting you in a hurry!
Think you're cool enough without gullwing doors and a V12 engine? By turning up in a classic Mini Cooper you'll be letting your lady know you're a different breed altogether. Brash and loud? That's not your style. You're more the understated cool, fun, hipster type. Pick her up and head for the juice bar – it's time to shake it up!
Whatever your style, image or taste – remember - if you're hoping to turn the girl next door into your everyday princess, she's going to need a carriage that's fit for a future queen. Need some tips, hints and advice? Check out our blog and be sure to keep your classic up to scratch!
