IN THE HEIRARCHY of the automotive world, no motor car enjoys such distinction and prestige as the chauffeur-driven limousine. Its marrying of elegance, roominess, and privacy represents a pinnacle of the art of automobile body styling, and because of this it has been associated throughout automotive history with royalty in Europe and with the royalty of the business, social, and entertainment worlds of America.

Originating in September of 1998 this site is dedicated to Limousines prior to the Super-Stretch era, mostly 1985 and older cars (with some exceptions). The limousines are displayed in no particular order. Some of the car descriptions are vague or none since information was difficult to find, also the quality of some pictures is not the best but still definitely worth including.
I hope you enjoy all the pictures and want to thank everyone who has allowed me to display their limousines and photographs.
In no way do I consider myself to be an expert on any of these limousines, some of them I've never heard of until someone sent me a photo. If you have any additional information or corrections, please let me know.
