Spied: The President's new limo

Recommended Posts

I wonder if it hints at the styling of the next DTS like the last Prez limo did?

Whatever makes you happy, :rolleyes: .

McCain would be happy with the latest Packard. :rotflmao:

Really? He seemed fairly impressed with that new fangled Stanley Steamer.

Still ugly. Why do they bother trying to make it look like a Cadillac?

I'm surprised Bush didn't upgrade to a Hummer based limo a few years back..would have been appropriate for the 'War President', and put sponsor decals on it like a NASCAR--decals for Halliburton, Blackwater, Exxon, etc. . :)

If Al Gore had ever become president we could have looked forward to this:

They slapped an Escalade front and the tired STS rear on it? This thing is pathetic.

Agreed.

If I was stuck with that job, I'd want an armored version of the Sixteen.

Exactly, the damn A-pillar is as thick as a medium sugar maple tree.

Just throw the armor on a H2, it will look less awkward.

Better yet just give him a freekin APC with an Escalade

grille, a 5-foot wide Cadillac-style LED CHiMSL, 22 inch

rims & call it a day!

The story of how Lincoln got the Whit House contract

for a few decades by default as a result of the Truman

Dewey debacle is an interesting one. I, for one, am

happy the commander in Chielf has a Caddy, not some

tarted up Fordproduct... if only on paper.

F*** yeah! ....but still a true pillarless hardtop.

Now that would be funny... seeing interlocking glass

that's 5" thick and designed to gell & catch armored

piercing rounds and yet its got to also seal in terms

of weather sealing & also dropp down into the doors!

Hell yesh! :spin:

Say what you will 68 but I still think this would make a bitchin' Presidential Limo

In fact I'd buy one too because I'm in love with the looks of the 1961-64 Continental (it's my favorite design) and would kill for anything styled to evoke it. Unfortunately all I get to satisfy me is the front end of the MKX Crossover (:huh:)
