Making Memories at U Drive Cars!
We love it when our customers take their driving experiences to the next level and when their dream drives invoke memories of happy by-gone drives. This year we have seen 2 x James Bond Aston Martin Drivers, been on hand for a Marriage Proposal, and were taken back in time by an Austin Healey enthusiast.
This charming gentleman had his dream drive in the Aston Martin DB9 and took it to the next level and donned a Tuxedo James Bond Style! We happily took pictures for him and sent him over copies as an added memento.
We also witnessed a Marriage Proposal. Little did Paul Olding know when he arrived at Heyford Park to drive a Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin and Audi R8 that his girlfriend also had another surprise lined up! At the end of his driving experience we allowed his girlfriend into the pit lane so that she could show him her very special t-shirt. The lucky chap said ‘Yes’ and we wish the future Mr & Mrs Olding all the best.
At the end of June John Wilkinson attended our event to drive our Austin Healey – little did we know that back in 1968 John owned a Healey 100/6, the forerunner to the 3000. We found this out when he left us this review – “This [driving experience] was a gift from my wife as I had been banging on about my wonderful Healey 3000 which I had sold fifty years ago. It brought back many happy memories and reminded me how small cars were then. The whole morning was relaxed and well organised and the other clients great fun to meet. Thank you for a happy memory.” Intrigued we contacted John to see if he had a picture and he gladly obliged along with the message – “It was the same colour as the one you allowed me to drive. Talk about winding the clock back. Nostalgia gone mad! Thank you to you and your team for such a great experience.”
Andrew Fairbairn got in to the spirit and style of James Bond when he visited us at Heyford Park for his dream Aston Martin DB9 Drive. We happily took photos of him before his drive and sent him some memorable pictures of himself and his wife enjoying the luxurious interior.
MAKING MEMORIES – EXPERIENCES NOT THINGS!!!!
