Dave's Classic Limousines is dedicated to documenting Limousines prior to the Super-Stretch era and features pictures and descriptions of Custom Coachworks cars and one offs (home built and commercial) plus a page devoted to presidential limos.

The site is older than us so please excuse the primitive navigation.

Ah, back when a ride in a limo was more than piling in a glorified shuttle bus.

a stretch Beetle...

my god, that's a thing.

A repeated thing. Beetles are pretty easy because they are rear engine - rear wheel drive and their floor pans are flattish.

There is no way that the 1866 "Limo-Horse" is real. The weight of the riders would break its back.

They didn't even have photoshop back then.

The stretch Dodge Omni is blowing my mind. That's a car that couldn't stay together and propel itself forward in stock form. Building an Omni stretch limo would be like moulding a working dragster out of spackle.

Some of those one-offs are amazing! (Some of them in that I am amazed people would go to the trouble.) I am sure I am not the only person that the Jag E-Type limo reminded of this.

I looked for but couldn't find a picture of a mid-'80s Cadillac six-door funeral limousine a lot like this one. From 2001 to 2008 my business partner's main daily driver was one of those. You get looks.

This is what the internet is supposed to look like. Fantastic! An obvious labor of love.

When I was in Europe a few years back, I saw a stretch Mini Cooper limo in Coventry.
