In the olden days, you banged your girl, and then got married. In China, as modern as it may be, the big bang is after the wedding ceremony. No Chinese wedding is complete without WWIII – worthy fireworks. The delivery vehicles for the marriage-megatonnage are purpose-converted ‘salute cars.’ As Tycho of Carnewschina tells us, the salute cars “are mostly based on old Beijing-Jeeps, dressed in military style with a big and scary rocket launcher in the back.”

Tycho covers Chinese cars and weddings like no other. He is a certified expert: He had his own Chinese wedding, and the grapevine says that it was successful. Tycho reports that the salute cars are for hire: “Rent for one day will cost around 5000 yuan, 800 USD, including the fireworks and personnel.”

As they said: When you get married, start your new life with a bang.
