Legendary auction house Bonham’s has announced the upcoming sale of a 1964 Lincoln Continental Limousine that has transported popes, astronauts, heads of state and other dignitaries over the years. This particular limousine will interest readers who have several parades and other high-profile engagements in the future as it features a detachable roof and a rooftop windshield for parades on windy days. Ford Motor Company received the original order for the limo from the Vatican for a speaking engagement for Pope Paul VI before the United Nations in New York.
A man who had his laptop stolen turned to secret software after contacting the police, who offered little help.
“I was thinking, this sucks, someone has my computer and is viewing my stuff and there’s nothing I can do about it,” Joshua Kaufman said.
Occasionally, we like to write about custom limos that feature improbable combinations of amenities. In the past, we have talked about limos built from scraps from other limos, a custom limousine made from an airplane fuselage, custom limos with wild color schemes and many other unlikely or remarkable limousines. The custom limousine for this blog post is equally unusual and unlikely: a Mini Cooper limo that features a two-person whirlpool in the back. This custom limo transcends two unlikely limo categories. For one, it’s a limousine made from one of the smallest passenger automobiles in the world. Secondly, it features a whirlpool within a space that is best described as “cozy” for one person, much less two. Still, this custom limo is so odd that we had to write about it as we often have unusual features in some of the San Francisco limousines in our fleet.
A group of fans from a rival team attacked a party bus transporting a group of English soccer fans recently after an important tournament. The party bus was carrying a group of fans of the Manchester City soccer club after their FA Cup semifinal match with archrival Manchester United when it needed to stop for gas. While the driver was filling up the tank, a rowdy group of United fans surrounded the vehicle and began throwing bottles of antifreeze from an outside display nearby. They then began kicking the party bus, smashing the windshield and kicking in the side panels where luggage is often stored.
Here’s a story that caught our eye. It may not pertain to luxury vehicles, but, as unapologetic car nuts, we thought it was worthy of mention. We also think it’s worthy of condemnation! Reports out of Nevada claim that search engine giant Google has hired a lobbyist to press Nevada lawmakers to pass two bills currently under review. If passed, they would make Nevada the first place on the planet where driverless cars are legal.
A 13-year-old liver transplant recipient celebrated her birthday in a very special way recently by riding in a pink limousine with close friends and family members. Eden Darcy was born with biliary artesia, a condition in which the liver’s bile ducts are blocked, impairing the function of the liver. The young lady and her family have struggled with the disease since her diagnosis five weeks after she was born. She received a new liver in August 2005, but complications made the following weeks, months and years very difficult. Her body rejected the transplanted liver three times, requiring constant monitoring and a regimen of anti-rejection medication. In addition, she has experienced many side effects from the medication.
A limousine service on the East Coast is offering a custom 2001 Volkswagen Beetle converted to a limousine on eBay for a cool $45,000. The white limoBug offers custom lighting accents, wet bar, grey leather seating, mirrored roof and a top-shelf audio/video system as well as an unmistakable profile certain to draw attention wherever it goes. The sellers aren’t being forthcoming with details about the limoBug’s power plant, but a 2.0-liter, air-cooled, four-cylinder engine commonly powered 2001 Beetles. Unless the customization craftsmen expanded the limoBug’s engine compartment, and it appears that they did not, it could take a very long time for this luxury limousine transporting six to eight guests to reach highway speeds.
San Francisco’s Inner Richmond neighborhood is another of our city’s overlooked jewels. While tourists flock to Fisherman’s Wharf, The Haight and other touristy areas of our fair city, San Franciscans and other Bay Area residents are perfectly happy to have Inner Richmond to themselves. However, that may not last as this unique neighborhood is quickly gaining the reputation of a foodie’s paradise with some of the city’s best restaurants gaining a national and international reputation for excellence.
If you’re traveling to the area and are looking for a truly unique San Francisco experience, it’s hard to top the city’s Inner Sunset neighborhood. Inner Sunset is not the place for sun worshipers; it is smack-dab in the middle of our fair city’s fog zone, and the fog shrouds this unique neighborhood day and night every month of the year. Bordered by Golden Gate Park on the north side and Vicente Street to the south, Inner Sunset is regarded by many San Franciscans as their favorite neighborhood in the city. They love its eclectic ethnic mix of shops and restaurants, its unique vibe and its unusual small-town feel in one of the world’s great cities.
