Ron Paul's 2008 super long limo was damaged but....Submitted by northstar on Tue, 08/17/2010 - 21:56
...the owner set out to build even a longer one. Lets hope he gets it ready for 2012 :-)
That limo, though, was damaged a few years back and "is pretty much junk," Ohrberg said.
Not to worry. Ohrberg has plans to build an even longer one. In a nondescript old warehouse near the beach in Oceanside, Ohrberg is storing a 55-foot Lincoln limo last used by Ron Paul in his 2008 presidential campaign.
The stars-and-striped painted vehicle was damaged heavily by an electrical fire after Paul's campaign, allowing Ohrberg to snap it up at a bargain price. He'll soon get started on trying to break his world record by stretching the car to 105 feet.
It's pretty unwieldy at its current length. An edited version of Ohrberg's 90-minute struggle to unload the limo from a car carrier was posted on YouTube.com by one of his neighbors (look for "How to unload a fifty five foot limo").
