Five events that are better with a classic car rental

Whether it’s a once in a lifetime event like a wedding or prom night, or an annual celebration for someone — birthdays, anniversaries, Father’s Day — special events are a time for all of us to slow down and appreciate each other a little bit more than usual. We get to come together, enjoy each other’s presence, have a meal with family or friends, and maybe a cake. (Everything’s better with cake.) 

Even with all those amazing things, you know what makes these events just a little bit better? Maybe even a lot better? Getting to and from those events in style. In luxury. In a piece of history. Or just in something that lets you show off a bit. 

A classic car rental from DriveShare makes one of the best gift ideas for any of these events, and it’s just the thing for anyone who wants to go above and beyond a standard stretch limo rental. And don’t forget that DriveShare handles things like roadside assistance and insurance, leaving you with just the route to worry about. 

The memory will last a lifetime, and so will the photos. Afterwards? Someone else deals with the maintenance and the detailing. It’s a win-win. Here’s a few occasions that only get better with a DriveShare rental … and what we might recommend for that special day.

Weddings: The classic eye-catching convertible

The bridal party and groomsmen can all get to the reception hall in a party bus or a stretch limo, but for the happy couple, this is your special day to have all eyes on you. One great way to ensure that you get as much attention as you can during this life changing event? Make sure you’re grabbing eyeballs all the way from the ceremony to your reception debut. 

Drop the top on a classic DriveShare convertible like a 1957 Chevy Bel Air, a 1966 Mustang or a 1967 Cadillac Deville and watch the heads turn as you cruise to the country club. If you don’t want the responsibility of driving on your special day, good news — you can also book a DriveShare rental just for a photo shoot. 

Even better? We’ve also assembled a list of ways that you can safely and festively decorate your classic DriveShare for the occasion — tin cans and all

Father’s Day: A muscle car (of course)

364 days of the year, Dad is a provider, a caretaker, a teacher. On Father’s Day, let the guy stretch his legs and burn a bit of rubber. 

DriveShare has a variety of cool cars to get him away from the day-to-day drives in the SUV or minivan (no shame!) and feel a little more power beneath that right foot. For Dad, we love everything from an iconic ride like a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 to a more modern hunk of muscle like a 2015 Chevy Corvette with 450 horses (or more!) under the hood.

Prom or graduation: Arrive in classic luxury 

events

You might be thinking: “Wait, I’m not letting my 18-year-old high school student behind the wheel of a rental car — that’s probably not even allowed!” Well, you’re right — DriveShare limits drivers to 25 years of age or older. But we’ve also made sure that renters can arrange to have a chauffeured driver along with the car, giving you one less thing to worry about. 

For a junior or senior prom, most kids will be going out with friends in a limo or a stretch SUV, but if they don’t mind being separated from the rest of their party they’ll remember being driven in style (and arriving in front of the class) forever, once they take a seat in a ride like a 2013 Bentley Flying Spur, a 1970 Mercedes-Benz or even a 1955 Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn

Birthdays: Something wild & fun 

Events

A birthday celebration doesn’t just need to be cake, streamers and a few presents. Make the entire day a gift by renting something off-the-wall, wild and unexpected. On DriveShare, you can find special cars you might have never even dreamt of driving. 

A 1963 Volkswagen Campmobile, for example — perfect for packing up and cruising around to your favorite picnic spots or hiking areas (so the birthday boy or girl can relax in the back on the way home). Or — since birthdays are all about time — a 1982 Delorean? Or go on an adventure with a 1966 Jeep CJ-5. DriveShare doesn’t limit you to just the standard gamut of classic rides. 

It probably won’t match the freewheeling abandon of their 21st birthday, but we think this is pretty much the next best thing

A special anniversary: Drive a car from your wedding year

Special Events

Let’s hope that all of us get to find that special someone to spend 25, 40, 50 years or more with. That kind of commitment should be celebrated! With vehicles from all ages, DriveShare makes it easy to send the happy couple back to the year of their nuptials with a car made in that same year. 

For couples with a golden anniversary coming up, DriveShare has a variety of cars from the 1970s, including a 1973 Cadillac Eldorado convertible, a 1978 Triumph Spitfire or a 1971 Plymouth Cuda – all of which are great for a new way to “revisit” one of the happiest days of your favorite couple’s lives. 


Whether you’re planning a wedding or amping up for summer occasions, special days are made better with a classic car, a luxury car or just a new and different way to get around town with DriveShare. But we don’t want you to limit yourself to just a few days a year. Whether it’s a once in a lifetime event or just a nice Saturday afternoon, DriveShare is here to make sure you can travel in the car of your dreams.
