Looking Out From the Garage

53 Cool Concepts... Part XXX

We all love limos, right?  When we see one, we wonder who might be in the back... is it a couple that just got married?  Maybe it is a prom couple.  Could it be a celebrity?  It might be a "titan of industry".  There are loads of possibilities...

For a long time, the American manufacturers built factory limos.  These weren't 200" stretches, by any measure.  But, they were extended wheelbase luxury sedans... Lincolns, Cadillacs and the odd Chrysler Imperial.  But, they have pretty much cut that out.  Now, about the only way to get a stretched sedan is to buy a limo from one of the conversion companies.

Maybe the factories should start building a few official stretches.

They aren't going to be aimed at the prom set or wedding parties... or even the folks that rent a limo to make sure they have a designated driver for party night.  But, they might be popular with companies to ferry executives, limo companies using them for executive airport shuttles (a little roomier than a towncar) or just a nice luxury ride.
