In Your Corner: Classic car snafu
OKLAHOMA CITY – Lauren Rutledge is a stickler for details.
A vintage Bentley was supposed to be the icing on her cake.
She said, “It was the car that was going to drop me off for me to walk down the aisle to get married to my husband.”
Now it seems those plans have hit a snag causing this bride to scramble for a set of replacement wheels.
It seems Stanley Mathews, the guy who handled Lauren’s cash and rental reservation, has skipped town.
A neighboring business owner tells the In Your Corner team he moved out weeks ago.
Property records show Mathews and his wife recently sold their Oklahoma City home, then purchased property south of the Red River in North Texas.
We tried emailing and calling Mathews numerous times but never got a response.
Our solution was Greg Pruitt and Kings Limousine.
Looks like Lauren will get her classic car after all.
“We’ve made contact and I’ve just told her whatever we have available when she comes in, she can take her pick,” Pruitt said. “We’d be happy to take care of her.”
It’s one less thing for this bride to worry about.
We’re still waiting to hear from Stanley Mathews.
It’s important to only deal with a company that’s properly licensed and insured.
Both the state and the city of Oklahoma City require permits.
