12-24-06, 05:33 PM

Why can't you?

12-25-06, 11:22 AM
Yeah -last limo I rode in was a Caddy -96 FWB with the LT1 V8. Nice car but bad limo conversion, just don't use Eurekas :) .

And most limo firms still make Caddy Limousines... so what's the deal?

Most of our work is corporate, so we use Long Wheelbase Town Cars (Executive Ls).

FWBs are too old for us to use. Nice cars, but 11 year old cars won't work for us. DTSs are not as big as Town Car Ls and the companies that we do a lot of contract work for won't accept them.

And the people at GM wonder why their "image" is going to hell in a handbasket when the movers and shakers in industry put their butts in LINCOLNS instead of Cadillacs, day after freakin' day.
What will it take for the jerks in GM's planning to wake up and smell the coffee?

I actually just picked up a Limousine myself. A town car, last year of the box style, 97. Outdated for most companys, however i still see them in service. And for $2400 i couldnt go wrong. Royale, the company who streched it did a poor job at metal prep, as some rust is commng threw due to pint flaking off.

But a ez fixer uper.

How do your parents let you buy so many cars? Let me in on whatever it is you're slipping into their food, I need some of that! :)

Id like to know the same. WE have a 3 car drive way, with a 2 car garage. the garage is occupied by the 57 chevys.. and there is my 90 cadillac, my dads truck, and my moms car, and my brothers car.

We have a jet ski trailer and a car trailer, a landscaping trailer.

And my 2 coupes, and 3 other 90-92 broughams are at my grandmothers. My limo is on the street right now, but hopefully i will find somehwere to sneak it in.

Gotta start kissing up to my negbors.

they dont. haha my dad has an '03 infiniti, an '07 CTS, a '93 GMC Sierra (used to be my daily driver) in the garage. outside of the garage in the only two available parking spaces are my moms '98 chevy venture... and my sisters like 0 something scion box car (crap). so i park in front of the garage where the truck is cause no one drives it. we have a dirt turnout that i built some dirt jumps on but those can be quickly demolished if it turns out that im gonna be having a limo soon. i'm going to call that guy back sometime tomorrow afternoon. check it out again. hopefully a test drive :eyebrow:
