You can ask friends/family to borrow their car.

If you don’t have that option then you’re best bet is a luxury car rental place. They typically don’t have any kid of branding on it.

ETA: Going to a car show and asking people to take pictures with their cars isn’t the best idea. Being a car enthusiast myself I wouldn’t like that, neither would the people we know. The car show is there for people to display their cars, you can probably take a photo in front of the car but not inside, and you can’t promise people are going to allow you to even stand that close to their cars. But again just my opinion.

scipioblack :  I think the car show is a great idea.  Even if you can’t use any of the cars there, you will probably get a good lead.

 Contact your loacl vintage car club or muscle car club. My Dad used to provide his car all the time to brides and grooms.

Where are you located? 

When I rent vintage cars for work shoots they are usually about 300-1500$ per day (for 8 hours). Even from hobby owners.

you might get a better deal depending on where you are located but you need to be prepared to pay the owner for their time. 

I would research car clubs and Facebook groups in your area and send emails to their moderators asking them to see if any of their members are interested.

Most areas have local car clubs.  Depending where you, car show season is over.  Where I am, they are only in nice weather months.  But in every town, there are nice cars hiding in garages for winter, lol. .

I agree with PP, find a vintage car club. By The Way, what a fun idea!
