1938 Cadillac V16 convertible parades from White House to auction house

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

1938 Cadillac V-16 President Convertible Parade Limousine

The unfortunate reality of a post-JFK, post-9/11 America means that our president needs to be hidden away from public view, and the details of his high-security transportation are just as hidden. But there was a time when the leader of the free world was paraded around for all to see, and for three presidents of these United States, this was the car in which they met their constituents.

Nicknamed the Queen Mary, this 1938 Cadillac V-16 President Convertible Parade Limousine was one of only two specially made for the White House (the other dubbed Queen Elizabeth), and was used by FDR, Truman and Eisenhower during their presidencies. Delivered on special order shortly after the introduction of Cadillac’s second-generation sixteen-cylinder engine (which was smaller and lighter than its predecessor but delivered the same output), the Presidential Limousine’s 165-inch wheelbase made it eleven inches longer than the already gargantuan production model.

After the end of WWII, as part of its routine maintenance, Cadillac replaced the sixteen-cylinder engines with V8s that were both more economical and easier to maintain. The cars were last used by President Eisenhower during his re-election campaign, after which longtime Cadillac dealer Jack Tallman, who witnessed the pair being rebuilt several times while visiting the factory, was offered the chance to purchase both cars. Tallman selected the Queen Mary for his collection, where it stayed for four decades. In 1999, the car was sold to one Al Wiseman, who showed it at Amelia Island in 2002 where it was awarded as the best original, unrestored vehicle.

It is now being offered for auction by the estate of John O’Quinn, its last owner, at the upcoming RM Auctions event in Arizona next week, where it is expected to fetch between $300,000 and $400,000. Have a closer look in the high-res image gallery and the detailed listing after the jump.

Morgan celebrates 75 years of the 4/4 with special anniversary edition

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Filed under: , ,

Morgan 4/4 75th Anniversary Edition

They don’t make ‘em like they used to? Morgan would beg to differ. Because while 75 years may be a milestone many automakers would be glad to celebrate, this 75th anniversary doesn’t commemorate a company’s founding. Nor does it mark the years since a specific factory was inaugurated, the birth of the company’s founder or anything like that. This milestone is marked by one specific model.

That’s right, the Morgan 4/4 has been on the market – largely in the same form in which it debuted – for a whopping 75 years. And here you thought the Porsche 911 stuck to an old formula.

The first four-wheeled model from the British automaker that made its name (and recently returned to building) three-wheeled vehicles – and packing a four-cylinder engine where the trike uses a V-twin – the 4/4 proudly rejects the advanced alloys being developed elsewhere at Morgan headquarters in favor of the same old-world construction it has always employed.

So to celebrate three quarters of a century of proudly rejection progress and strict adherence to “the good old days”, Morgan has released a special 75th anniversary edition. Buyers can choose from three colors (black, red or white), with a matte black stripe running up the hood out of which the numbers 4/4 and 75th are carved and under which sits a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.

Its 145 horsepower may not seem like much by today’s standards, but remember: the 4/4 doesn’t care for today’s standards very much. So that’s plenty to pull the tiny roadster to 62 miles per hour in 7.2 seconds and on to a 118 mph cruising speed. Like what you see? Scope out the high-res image gallery for a closer look.

Automatic cars are a very popular choice with our clients undoubtedly because they are so easy to drive and when abroad in United Kingdom. It may be best for some people to be able to concentrate more on the road rather than the car. Even if you drive a manual car at home you might want to try an automatic when you arrive in Wales. We have a range of agents in Wales who can offer automatic vehicles but due to there being a limited supply, if it’s an essential part of your holiday in United Kingdom its really important that you book early.

Diesel cars are very popular in United Kingdom for obvious reasons if you plan to travel extensively. Diesel in United Kingdom is cheaper than petrol and savings can be quite substantial if you are planning to cover a lot of miles during your stay.

Convertible Car Rental in Portugal

Friday, January 13th, 2012

Why not treat yourself to a luxury soft top car whilst on holiday in Portugal and take in those rays and enjoy the open air whilst exploring Portugal at your leisure. You can pick up your car rental in Portugal from a few locations in Portugal.
Your convertible car hire in Portugal allows you the freedom of exploring at your own pace and give your the opportunity to see things that you may not have been able to see on your holiday without travelling in a car. Having a soft top car hire allows you so much freedom whilst travelling, you are able to take in the views so much easier whilst enjoying the glorious weather. All the big car companies produce soft top model, Mini, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Volkswagen, Peugeot, Audi and many others.

There are a couple of things you must take into consideration before finally booking your soft top car hire. The first being, will all your family and luggage fit into the car? Secondly you need to think whether the location you are travelling to will have the weather that is needed to enjoy a soft top car hire to the full?

The roads in Portugal are very different to that elsewhere in Europe, so please use caution. Drivers who are not experienced with driving abroad may wish to choose an automatic hire car as there are fewer things to think about when driving an automatic car. If an automatic hire car is essential to you, be sure to request one as early as you can when making your initial booking. Automatic car hire and manual car hire is an option at Portugal.

Convertible Car Rental in Belgium

Friday, January 13th, 2012

Convertibles cars are some of the most popular vehicles booked via our website www.1st-car-hire-spain.com.

You will then be all set for your visit to Belgium. If you need to amend your booking at a later stage this is easily done by going back on line and retrieving your reservation.

Hiring a convertible car is very much dependent on your ultimate location as it may not be entirely suitable. Convertible car hire should be possible in most locations but may not be available in all. Once more, in this instance, it’s a case of pinpointing your location and finding out from our website out which companies operate from Belgium and can offer the more luxurious end of the market. If you don’t have a convertible car at home it may be a special treat to hire one whilst you are on your trip in Belgium. We can offer a good choice of cabriolet car hire in Belgium. This can be arranged as pick up and drop off from the same location or as a one way rental, which you pick up or return to Belgium and drop it back to a different location. We cannot offer one way car hire cross country borders, but is fine within the same country.

All drivers must be aged over 21 to rent a cabriolet car hire. Some car hire companies require that the drive is at least 23 or sometimes aged over 25. Please be sure to read the terms and conditions of your rental before you confirm your online reservation.

It’s recommended that once you have found a convertible available for your dates of travel and destination that you book it there and then to avoid disappointment. In the case of a convertible car, you may pay more that many other vehicles but you know you are getting what you want.

When you arrive at Belgium please ensure you have your booking confirmation with you and your full driving licence.

You can purchase extra optional cover which you may wish to look into if your vehicle is considered in a higher risk category simply for peace of mind. The additional premium is usually quite reasonably priced for the extra cover provided.
