Valentine’s Day may have come and gone, but this is no excuse not to treat your girl to a glamorous date straight out of a classic Hollywood film. Be George Heppard and Audrey Hepburn for a night and feel like characters from a classic romantic film, complete with a ride on a vintage limo in Indianapolis. Sure, a simple ride out on a limo is memorable enough, but why not take it up a few notches and get cues from some of Hollywood’s most memorable on-screen relationships?
Some people might be happy with a simple limo ride, which in itself exudes an aura of sophistication and style and is seen only in Hollywood A-listers. Add a bottle of champagne and drive around town for the night, and your date would be complete. Yet, how can you make it extra special?
Try recreating that scene from To Catch a Thief, when Grace Kelly took Cary Grant to a scenic drive, which ultimately led them to a breathtaking view while eating their lunch. Bring along a couple of sandwiches or some snacks and drive a stretched Lincoln limo to the nearest view, where you can both enjoy the scene while eating.
Feeling a bit outdoorsy for the night? Stargazing is the perfect activity for you, a la Splendor in the Grass, with blankets piled on you while cuddled at the back seat of your rented vintage limo, as what Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty did in the movie. Maybe you’d want to do an Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday; you can drive a 1953 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith around in unfamiliar nooks and places and just let anything happen.
Exploring the unexplored is also what makes Before Sunrise a great inspiration for a date: go to an undiscovered restaurant in your vintage car, or walk unfamiliar streets without any destination in mind, the same thing protagonists Jesse and Celine did.
If you’re more interested in the destination rather than the trip, then take her to a nature park, like what John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara did in The Quiet Man. If all goes well, you might even be able to sneak in a kiss or two, then ride away into the sunset on a 1938 Cadillac Model 75.
With a fancy date like any of these, not only can you experience a classy ride, but you can also recreate classic movie scenes with your girl, which can make your date—and you—truly unforgettable to her. Luckily, you don’t need to actually buy a vintage car to reenact those scenes. You can rent them from Indianapolis limo rental services, such as Antique Limousine of Indianapolis.
