A touch of class - a trip by limousine
A trip to the airport by limousine or getting married in a white Rolls Royce - was it a modern limo or a vintage car?
How the other half live - movie star or royalty for the day - hiring a limousine
Limousines or other luxury automobiles are normally for the very rich only but sometimes we hire them for short periods or specific journeys.
Have you ever been somewhere by limousine, a luxury car or something similar? What was the journey like? How did the car compare with your normal vehicle? Where did you drive to? Did you have a chauffeur? What was the trip like? Would you want a car like that for yourself or are you concerned about its fuel consumption or exhaust emissions?
Here are some popular situations where limousines or similar automobiles are used.
- Stretch limousines which can carry lots of guests
- Chauffeur-driven wedding cars
- Vintage cars or classic cars such as Daimler, Rolls Royce and Bentley
- Airport shuttle service
- Limousine taxis
How did the chauffeur behave? Was he or she deferential or 'sniffy' towards you? Did you feel 'a million dollars'? If it was for a wedding, was it a white Rolls Royce or a Bentley or how was it decorated? If it wasn't to get married in or to go on some similar romantic trip, what was the special occasion?
Did you rent the car by the day, by the hour or did you pay for the journey? What was the interior of the car like? Did you drive the car yourself? Would you like to own a limousine or, if you do, what sort of limo is it and why did you buy it?
So, if you've ever been in a limousine or vintage car, why not describe the journey, the car or something else remarkable about the trip?
