Urgent Hire Request 17th Oct London SW19
Hi there.

To cut a long story short, I’m trying to help organise a significant birthday party for my wife and 2 of her friends, all of whom will be enjoying birthdays at about the same time in mid-October, celebrating their 40ths (or similar). As they’re film buffs they’ve decided to make it a Back to the Future-themed affair, due to the date which the films’ protagonists go forward to in the second film (21st October 2015, my wife’s birthday) and so the venue is being decorated inside to reflect scenes from the films (Enchantment Under the Sea Ball etc).

The most memorable contribution I feel I could make would be to stun the arriving guests by having a DeLorean parked outside the venue (complete with stage smoke and lights). That would make the party right from the off. As you’ve guessed, I was wondering if there is anyone in your club who is within range of Southwest London and would consider letting me hire their car, even for just a couple of hours.

The date is next Saturday (!), the 17th of October, time 7pm-11pm, venue the Old Rutlishians Rugby Club, Poplar Road, Merton Park, London SW19 3JS, but even an appearance from, say, 6:30-8:30pm would be amazing to greet guests. They have a private car park in front of the clubhouse and my idea would be to park it there, no driving, for show only. I have been trying to locate one for hire but they are hard to come by and very expensive, in part due to the distance they have to be transported but also obviously the timing. We don’t have a lot of money but were hoping something in the region of £300 might tempt you. We would, of course, transport it in any manner you prefer, be it hire a flat-bed transporter, one of us take out insurance and drive it or pay you for your time and inconvenience to deliver it yourself (please come to the party as well!). Any other necessary insurance I’d be happy to arrange.

I do apologise for the unusual request and means of contact but if I fail to find a DeLorean I shall be building one out of hardboard this weekend!

Many thanks.
