    Presidential Limousine photo gallery

    Not sure how this ended up on a technology blog, but thought it was cool enough to pass along, and a quick browse. Obama's car is a COMMERCIAL truck with a Cadillac body conversion and Escalade headlights, insane!

    I think that obamha would have spent less money if he had just bought a cadillac armored limo and didnt have soemthing specialized custom made btu thats why we have a non us citazen who has no proofe of birth he has a proofe of life certificate but no birthcirtificate and cant even prove to us that he is USA Born anyone midwife mother father brother sister anyone can call a Dr up and say i just gave birth and this is the childs name this is his birthdate and time and this is where he was born shoot you could do that from Cuba if they let the phone call go threw
    come on how much has he put us more in debt ?

    Dude, GTFO with your Rush Limbaugh conspiracy theory bullshit. I am not an Obama nutswinger, but the man is honestly trying to make the best of a very bad hand of cards that has been dealt to him.

    Anyways, I really don't want to turn this thread into a political debate. The presidential limo site is really cool, and the cars that have served our Commander in Chief have always held a special place in my heart. If I had the $$$$, I would totally own this right here:

    The Clinton-era Fleetwood is my favorite presidential limo. Such an awesome car. I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

    But I'd be sure to get that interior detailed to the hilt.

    Pup, your point about him spending money on the limo isn't really a good argument since the Secret Service makes these decisions... I doubt very much that Obama was involved in the decision making process much if at all.

    I'm sure the president has bigger fish to fry, I'm sure he doesn't get involved with ordering his limo,he has peeps for that.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the order for the presidential limo had been placed and paid for before Obama was even elected. Secret Service likes to plan ahead, as would be expected.

    And (I'm pretty sure) even Rush Limbaugh doesn't buy the birther conspiracy.

    fw limo!!! I think 12000 lbs is a conservative estimate on that one. the glass is 3 inches thick on that thing. If I had to pick a presidential limo from the last 50 years, it would be clintons. IMO reagans and bushs looked disproportionate in the roof (too tall, and obamas- well that thing is a monster truck with caddy parts on it- its cool, but it doesnt look like a car.

    btw, someone needs to stop drinking the limbaugh koolaid.

    Re: Presidential Limousine photo gallery

    My experience with American Presidential limousines is like most people limited to those they have seen in museums or in a motorcade on its' way somewhere. But I have actually ridden in a presidential limousine, albeit one from before the days of hyper armor and bullet proof glass!

    When I was 13 years old and my family was about to return to the U.S. from Brazil we were staying at the Hotel Jaragua, then the finest hot in Sao Paulo. As luck would have the president of Portugal was making his first trip to Brazil, a former Portuguese colony. Actually it was the first time any president of Portugal had visited Brazil and it was a major occasion for the government and people of that country.

    It was early on a Sunday evening and I had to get to church for a youth club meeting, but because the part of the President's entourage was staying at the Jaragua getting a taxi was almost impossible. Senhor Joao, the doorman had become somewhat of a friend of mine, hailing cabs for me to get to school each morning and taking care of my family's transportation needs ( we had also stayed at the the hotel for two months when we came to Sao Paulo two years before). Knowing my predicament Sr. Joao walked over to the President's limousine, which was parked in front of the hotel and talked to the limo's driver and then motioned for me to join them. It turned out that the limo had to go to Avenida Paulista to pick up the President and since my church was on the way he could drop me there. And so opened the door for me to climb in the rear compartment. So began my one, and only ride in a presidential limousine.

    The car was a 1950 Lincoln Cosmopolitan limousine like the one presidents Truman and Eisenhower had used when they were in the White House, except this one wasn't a four door convertible but was fully enclosed (I don't know why they chose to show that blue Cosmo convertible in the article on presidential limousines above; there are plenty of photos of the "Bubbletop" presidential Lincoln in archive). I had no noticed while standing there that the limousine had a Portuguese flag and the President's pennant on the front fenders. But to my great surprise, when we pulled out to go we were accompanied by four motorcycle escorts who shortly turned on their sirens as off we went. Some of my friends might have been embarrassed by the commotion .... but not me! I just made believe it was just for me. When we got to the church some of the kids were standing out front with the minister, their jaws really dropped when the chauffeur open the door and I got out!

    I have ridden in several limousines since that time, but never another presidential on with the flags flying! Talk about being in the right place at the right time!

    I do have a picture of one of President Bush's Cadillac limos sitting in front of a C-130 that had delivered it, with my son and a friend who were acting as advance people for the President standing in front of it. But he never got to ride in it!

    On rare occasions, Cars of State wind up on the sale block. While the Cadillac Brougham is cool, If I ever "could", I'd want SS-100X and not because of anything other than the 60s Lincolns just look so darn GOOD.
