Throwback Thursday: Now THAT'S a Stretch

Now THAT'S a Stretch

 

Stretch Limo in Santa Monica 2007 

 

 A stretch limo, that is. We were in Santa Monica about 10 years ago near the 3rd Street Promenade, when I spotted this stretch limo turning onto Ocean Avenue.

 

You can fit a small neighborhood in that thing. Imagine driving that around. You'd have to be pretty careful to stay on the roads large enough to accommodate you, and any turns you'd need to make.

It could always be converted into a tiny house! I bet the gas mileage sucked.

Hi Jeff -  I remember when my daughter was at her high school prom the parents got one that size.  The driver could barely get it into a driveway.

Hi Jeff... I actually had a chance to ride in one of those some years back. Generally, a bit ostentatious for my taste, but you can't argue with being able to transport a bunch of people all at once.

Jeff - there was a time that I saw at least a dozen stretch limos daily; until today I didn't realize it has been a long, long time since I saw a long stretch limo. What's up with that? Did they relocate to Carlsbad, CA?
