President Obama's Caddy
It seems silly to say that the President has a nice car. I guess it should be assumed that the highest ranking official in these United States would have a nice buggy to putter about in. Still, this car is really nice. The only thing it seems to be missing is rocket launchers and machine gun turrets, which would be horribly impractical but immensely cool. This particular Presidential Cadillac continues a tradition that began in 1919, "when President Woodrow Wilson sported a Cadillac in a World War I victory parade in Boston. The Calvin Coolidge administration kept up the tradition, utilizing a 1928 Cadillac Town Car." The article goes on to chronicle the history of the special car up until the time of President Bush. A great read.
