Talking The new presidential car!

Obama's wheels: Secret Service to unveil new presidential limo - CNN.com

Whatay car.

The funniest part is where they say:
Quote:
Not likely. Car enthusiasts believe the overweight vehicle burns diesel and will have low mileage. And with diesel costing about $2.40 a gallon Monday, versus $1.67 for gasoline, this new limo can't be called an economy vehicle.
hahaha!

In India they'd love it!

Good one,phamilyman.
A while into presidency,there might be a 'bail out' to get the president a hybrid limo.

HEHE!! Osama will probably have his car with some 24 inch Chrome Giovannas and like a million watt audio system in the back!!

And it will most probably be pimped by West Coast Customs!!

Cyrus - He's the President, not a pimp or a crack dealer!

He's one of the few people who show some class.Few others being Denzel Washington & Morgan Freeman-2 of my favourite actors.
I'm quite eager to see how things change once he takes the lead.

My My thought we were talking Obama. Are you serious Cyrus or thats a typogarphic error?
Coming to the car, I think they were right when they said Obama can try a tank instead. By the way its stated car can take a direct hit of an asteroid. Now why would god think about taking up Osama's role?

He ain't going anywhere fast with that limo that's for sure. Top speed of 60mph and 0-60mph in 15secs.

How's he supposed to escape from the bad guys.
