In a rare behind-the-scenes look, the Cadillac & LaSalle Club's Potomac Regional Director, Vince Taliano, was granted permission to spend a day in the Secret Service motorpool garages. Fortunately, he documented the day in pictures, and shared the experience with Hemmings and therefore all of us on the interweb.

Taliano got to see the current fleet of cars, including Dubya's personal Caddy. It's based on the Cadillac DTS and was first unveiled at the 2005 Inauguration Parade. General Motors says it is hand-built with a jet-black clearcoat finish. This particular DTS is also a lot longer, wider and taller than the one you can get at your local Cadillac dealer. In the interest of national security, the limo features state-of-the-art protection and communications systems. And to make it a better rolling office, the interior has been redone to include a hidden foldaway desktop and reclining adaptive rear seats, which "senses the position of the occupant in the seat and automatically adjusts the cushion for added comfort." Pretty slick. Click the read link for more photos and personal observations on the cars and the trip. We found it a good read worth our time.

      i say go for the spinners, curb feelers, and maybe put a bulls horn on the hood.
      note the bumper sticker "i am the guy your honor role student beat up" or "hey! don't call me names or i'll send you huntin with my vice president" or "neceeeeeler power is good"

      Given the current administrations indifference to the American auto industry, I wouldn't be surprised Cadillacs and Lincolns are banned and our officials (on both sides of the aisle) demand to be driven around in a stretched Camry.

      Que the "BushchimpMcHitler" comments.

      To the monkeys who will post that he's a fascist, dictator, Grand Puba, etc... , remember the next person in that office be he or her a Rep. or Dem. is
      going to use that car. There's are also a good chance that by the time that person leaves office this car will be retired and replaced by something else.

      Is there anywhere i can find that lists all the limos that various presidents have driven? Does the President have a choice between lincoln or caddy?

      I guess I'd be impeached if i were president since i'd commission a stretch protection version of 07 S-class.

      The adaptive seats aren't just for the President. They've been a Cadillac option since the '99 STS.

      I personally wonder whether that limo would look better with blackwalls.
