Classic Limousine Service - by C&G

43 posts in this topic

Rules:

1. Must be $60k or less.

2. Must be "unique" in some way without being tacky. i.e. no Towncars turned into Bentleys, no 300c given "jet doors".

3. B-Bodies acceptable for routine service if cheap and in great shape.

4. Older than 1990 preferred unless very unique or of an interesting premium brand.

1937 Buick 90 Limousine

1965 Cadillac Fleetwood Limousine

1969 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow with Chevy 350

1954 Packard Limo

Oldsmoboi:

You clown! I would have GIVEN you my '74 Continental Town Car limousine when I had to get rid of it if you're at all serious about starting a linousine service! You could have restored it five times with 60K.

Well, the idea was to build a fleet of these old beasts. I don't have the money/time to do this right now anyway, this is mostly just open dreaming. I would have taken you up on the Lincoln though.

Edit: It's what I plan to do in a few years once I'm back from Germany.

We have alocal Limo service that has one of the actual Rolls limo's used in Scarface, I think.

One of these days I'm gonna rent the thing, and double date with my son Joel. I think it would be fun.

Oh... well to supplement the silly-super-stretched stauf most

places here have a few regular sedans or Town Car L-s for

airport runs and such, that's what I drove most of the time

at my last job.... just a clean, green TownCar.

Well in that case, here's some worthy examples (not for sale per se)

ragtop limo! Aiii-ght!

Good thing this next one is a '64, not a big '64 fan so I'm okay with it being cut up.

(looks around cautiously to see if Balthazar is around)

not very impressive but worth including:

Hey look, a '65 Cadillac what has a windshield

interchangable with my '59 Buicks' (seriously)

SEXY, long, elegant... perfect. :wub:

Oh, Dodgefan: didn't I ever TELL you that's "Diesel Dave's"

1963 Chrysler Limo sitting in the woods, rotting slowly?

He's a fruity nutcase who owns a bunch of $h!pile rusted cars,

some awesome some useless even if they WERE restored.

He had a diesel I6 out of a '84 Datsun Maxima that I would have

loved to buy and drop in my Datsun, had it not been sitting in the

woods in the dirt for 5 years... but it's okay, there was an old

scummy truck cap over it. :rolleyes:

He also owns a bunch of Yugos, one a convertible sitting in the

back of a box van, ha also has many more $h!pile European

city cars from the dark days, one such fruity french car is

sitting INSIDE a Suburban shell. Litterally.

About a half dozen Amphicars litter his prperty as well as an

awesome Flxible tour bus wiht the glass ceiling... :wub:

His daiy drivers are a bunch of diesel $h!boxes he rotates,

a Chevette diesel, a couple Peugeots, BMWs, Volovos, you

name a F***ed up diesel car he OWNS it, most of them not

running. He also lays claim to a Volvo 240 wagon that is

sitting in a shallow riverbed 1/4 mile away from his house

in the woods of NH, I bought some parts off that car for a

friend with a '89 240 sedan.

That's another LOOONg story.

Last time I saw it was about two years ago, at his "property"

He does own a caddy bustleback diesel but it's been sitting

in the woods for about a decade, with one of the windows

down. Once, XP & I walked his property when there was like

27" of snow on the ground.

The only car he owns I'd pay good money for would be the

'60 Eldorado 2dr hardtop that is sitting under a tarp stretched

from two funky buses in his back yard.

Anyway that '40 Cadillac is for sale, & EXACTLY within the $60,000 budget. :)

P.S. Diesel Dave owns a way cooler mopar limo...

a late '50s (1958 Chrysler IIRC) airport limo, in red.

I'll have to dig up the photos and post them for ya.

The red tail finned limo is quite impressive, & it is

parked next to a 100% complete but in need of

one or two mechanical repairs '80s Bitter.

Yup, the ultra rare German GT car.

Agreed! :)

1965 Cadillac

Eh.... not impressive, if you like stacked headlight

Cadillacs the 65/66 Caddys are boring compared

to the later '67/'68, their raked noses, poinitng

forward almost like a Battleship, is way more cool!

1962 Cadillac

'62 is nice, but again: why 62 AND not 61.

1962 is basically the same as a 1961 EXCEPT with

smaller, less raked, less pronounced tailfins and

with some brightwork deleted. :(

Hmmm. Have a Western PA/Eastern PA/NJ based service and offer cars from both ends of the state for an additional fee.
