There was a time when the rich and famous motored almost exclusively in stretched limousines. Limos trickled down to the rest of us by the means of rentals. Prom, wedding, fancy dinner date, a long ride to the airport, or a sporting event, limos were the best way to feel fabulous about commuting. Limousines were featured and movies and magazines. People posed for pictures with limos. Kids, myself included, would go crazy in them playing with all the things.
Limos were everywhere and some limo builders even became household names. But lately, with the increase of commuting options and in some places the social stances, limos have gone down in popularity. Factory luxury sedans and SUVs have gotten much better over the years, which could be considered a factor. For instance, a modern Lincoln Navigator L can comfortably sit as many people as a stretched Town Cars from the 80s.
Today we ask – Are stretch limousines still relevant? Pandemic aside, which basically prevents us from participating in the above-stated activities, have you even considered hiring a limousine?
