Copy of Jayne's Wedding Dress?!

Today is our 17th wedding day! We have ate brunch and driven a long tour in my vintage car. We stopped at a flea market where I bought a small and lovely red purse - a wedding gift for myself as dear husband said.

Here is dad and I ready for going into the church, I still have 80's fashioned hair, ough:

I have never dreamed of being a white bride, I am too pale and colourless for wearing white - I love red and red is the colour of love. Here is dear husband and I walking down the aisle very newly wed:

Dear husband and I kissing in front of the pro photographer:

Dad and I are dancing. I sketched the wedding dress myself and gave the drawing to my mother in law who is a pro taylor, she did a fab job on the dress:

But oops! Did I make a copy of Jayne Mansfield's wedding dress without even knowing it:
Or do we just have the same great taste!? ;)

25th Opel GT Club Meeting in Denmark

Last weekend we attended the annual Opel GT club meeting in Denmark near the German border. There are only about 40 GT's on plates in Denmark and 23 of them were represented, not bad at all. 20 more GT's came from Germany.

Here I am at a sparepart market looking at vintage models of the GT:

Dear husband and I (he drives when we are together, so I don't have to hear him complain about my driving skills). We are getting in line for the convoy tour:

GT parking only. My GT is in first line, number four from the right:

They are in every colour and every style:

It was the Danish GT club's 25th anniversary and Bjarne at the photo has been in the club from the very beginning:

A great weekend talking with fellow GT fans about our lovely small cars and the weather was so great too.

Royal Race

Normally, I'm not a royalist - but being this close to the HRH Prince Joachim and his new and very beautiful wife, Princess Marie, I became one! :) I have shot all the photos myself, but I behaved! I did not rush up to them and put the camera right in their faces, I stayed behind the line about 3-4 metres from them.

We spent all Sunday at the Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix and it was WONDERFUL! You might read much more about it on their website: chgp.dk - click the English flag at the top right. The races were divided into year groups and also car types and many famous race drivers participated.Prince Joachim is patron for the Grand Prix and an active racedriver.

Here they are - HRH Prince Joachim and his lovely wife Marie:

Perhaps they are discussing his strategy for the coming race:

Joachim's car, a Ford Cortina from 1965, but with a Lotus engine. We heard he had crashed the engine in one of Saturday's races, so at new engine had to be mounted during the night - great to be royal:

His name is embroidered on the seat. Note the car is right-hand driven, in Denmark all cars are left-hand driven:

This is a good shot - his helmet (with name on), his woolen head cover, and gloves on top of his car and HRH himself with wife in the background:

Here he is racing - I've heard that he is a very respected racedriver. He started as number 8, due to the engine crash the day before, and ended as number 6:
