    <_< <_< Ummm... No. Somehow the dimensions just look off. I think GM should market the H2 as the perfect limo. They look awesome&#33;&#33;

    I think the STS would look great as a limo.

    Forget the STS as a limo, but I am sure there will be a limo version of the DTS when it comes&#33;

    I always thought RWD limos were hard to do because u have to stretch the driveshaft

    Most limousines (Lincoln towncar, Cadillac Fleetwood) have been rear-wheel drive.
    A front wheel drive limo is much less common.

    I think a CTS limo would look the best. It wouldn&#39;t turn out gross like when they take some really roundish cars and stretch it out. With the CTS just take some sheet metal, add a fold here and there and voila&#33; you&#39;re done.

    Are there current STS limos? I thought no at first until i saw a grey one on my way down to Atlantic City once. Custom job, perhaps?

    Pretty much all limousines are custom jobs. Almost every limo ever made starts as a regular sedan and then gets cut in half by the coach builder.

    Here&#39;s a Seville limo (Real one, not chopped)

    mmm-- that&#39;s much classier than the Deville limos.

    I hope it&#39;s a long time before I see a Caddy hearse... I&#39;m hoping that I have at lease 70 years left.
