    Looking at a possibility of renting one of the above for the big day at the end of 2015 :Smile:

    Wedding will be in Poland but close to German border. Maybe someone here knows something (or knows German fluently and would be able to assist with search) regarding renting such a car?

    I know it's a long shot, but worth a try.

    Tried myself and there's almost 0% chance of finding it in Poland. Thought it's worth a try in Germany ...

    I'd just save up and buy one, probably cheaper than a wedding!

    You gotta have faith playa! You do remember being at brands, we do know people who know people with many examples in fine fettle.

    They won't be willing to selling those cars I have already asked.

    You could always get a MGB Midget and pretend its an S800. :Fear: I would think that it would be next to impossible to find one for rental.

    The thing with either the S600 or S800 is the few remaining in the country which are cherished and maintained (in wedding or show car condition) will be so heavily coveted I doubt you'll ever pry them from the owner's hands. But for sure, what an amazing wedding vehicle.

    If you do track one down in Germany, my mother and her side are native speakers :Smile:

    quite right leo
    in the uk s800 club there are only about 55 cars on the road and probably only a handfull of non club member owned cars on top of that
    they can be quite easily broken in the hands of some one that is not familiar with these quirky little cars so itll be highly unlikely that you will be able to get some one to part with there coverted little cars
    but good luck prove us all wrong in your search and good luck with your wedding

    I certainly didn't expect this will be easy task :Smile: It would be amazing to find it. I found some rentals where they let you drive the car, but indeed this could be quite different with S800. May need to settle for a Polish old-timer instead.

    But I will keep on looking before I give up.

    Maybe even a white targa CR-X del-sol would be a good idea :Wink:

    ^^I know it's "only" an N600, but you could at least both fit into the back :Smile:. Probably...

    Time to ask for an early wedding present methinks :Whistle:

    Double that for an ok s800 and add another 4 grand for a s600. Maybe just take along a model of one. I have two for sale.
