My wife and I were married in 1993 and had an MGB limousine for the occasion. 
Dino Perez had pretty much finished the stretch MGB that he and Tom and Jon 
Josefek had built earlier that summer and kindly chauffered us around the 
western suburbs of Chicago for the big day. It got rather chilly in the later 
stages of the October afternoon - he did put up the new extended top he had 
made, but there were no longer cranks in the doors to put up the windows and he 
had not yet connected the electric winder motors. Plus he had not yet made the 
custom snap-in sections to go between the front and rear door windows.  But 
it made for some treasured photographs of us in and with the car and it looked 
sensational parked under the front door canopy of the hall where we had our 
reception. Certainly let our friends know they were in the right place as they 
pulled up. Dino never wanted to get into having to get a chauffer's license and 
the appropriate insurance to use the car for such events on a regular basis, 
so as far as I know, to this day it was the only use of a stretch MGB limo in 
a wedding. We got together with a bunch of longtime friends at a pub yesterday 
for lunch and after 10-plus years, it still got mentioned in conversation 
that they remembered the limo at our wedding.
