Full disclosure, I'm posting this for entirely selfish reasons. Not to help me, though, to help somebody else. Gawker Media employee Kanwar Kultar Gill is getting married soon and needs a cool vintage car for his wedding. Can we help him out?

His wedding is in early March. It's in Sparta, New Jersey, which is about an hour and 20 minutes outside Manhattan. I don't live in either and I'm not familiar with car rental services in the area, but you guys might be.

Here's what he and his fiancee are after:

Personally, I dig vintage... 67-72 TR6 in BRG. The fiance is very much in line with myself as far as cars and motorsports (Huge Button & mclaren fan and is more into WEC than I am hah) except she likes the newer exotic trend.

I've been giving free reign in car choice so long as the cost is reasonable.. and that's the tough bit... getting the cost to be reasonable while also finding something that's inline with complementing her for the weekend (Wedding Sat, Reception Sun).

Any ideas where one could rent a cool car — preferably an old British sports car — in that area without breaking the bank? I'd be hugely appreciative if the Jalop collective could help him out, because I don't know where to start.

Patrick,

So funny you mention it but I'm the CEO of a new startup called classicsandexotics.com and we are bringing car sharing to the car enthusiasts garage! We want to help car enthusiasts offset their car ownership costs by renting their cars to pre-screened, highly qualified renters. We also want to give people access to cars they normally wouldn't have access to and hopefully grow the classic car community! With that being said... we have a beautiful 1958 MGA, red exterior with a new interior that will be perfect and we will wave all fees!
