Rent a dream car for the man in your life on Father's Day
PHILADELPHIA - jUNE 13, 2013 (WPVI) -- Dad almost certainly doesn't need another necktie. He probably has a grill and all the things that go with it. So what can you give him for Father's Day that he doesn't have?
How about a taste of the good life, guy-style? That, in a nutshell, is what Imagine Lifestyles is all about.
The company has showrooms up and down the East Coast.
They rent exotic cars most men only dream of driving. Their Pennsauken showroom has cars to match all sorts of dreams, a Ferrari, a Lamborghini, an Aston-Martin, Bentley, Rolls Royce, classic Ford Mustang and a mid-'60's Cobra with gigantic V8's.
The cars typically cost hundreds, even thousands to rent for a day. But there are frequent "specials". And a "driving experience" event next month at the Wells Fargo Center's parking lot will provide a brief turn behind the wheel of one of the exotics for under two hundred dollars.
There are rules. You must be at least 21 years old. To rent, you must have proof of insurance, but that could come in several ways.
Just like the every-day vehicle you might rent, your own car insurance policy might provide sufficient coverage. You could take out a policy with the rental contract. Or your credit card might provide the essential coverage.
The staff knows the ins and outs and can guide you through the process. Roughly three out of four renters are men but women represent a growth market in the exotic rental business.
Popularity varies by season. The Bentley and the Rolls are in bigger demand as transportation for proms and weddings.
Do be prepared for questions on the street if you rent any of these vehicles.People are likely to stop and ask what you do for a living or how you can afford such a spectacular set of wheels.
Each vehicle is fitted with a GPS-like system that enables the company to track its whereabouts, its operating speed, even taking some control in an emergency.
This being a customer service-based business, Imagine Lifestyles has people available on any day, at any hour.
You may reach them locally at 856-437-5271, or go online to Imagine Lifestyles.
If you need more than a great car to complete your image experience, they also offer airplanes, yachts, and just about anything else that comes to mind.
For more information about the "driving experience" event July 25-28 outside the Wells Fargo Center, access Imagine Lifestyles, where you may book a reservation.
