Ever since Henry Ford began rolling the iconic Ford Model T off his production lines in Michigan in 1908, the motor car has stolen the imagination of the American people and been an essential ingredient of the American dream. Whether cruising down Fifth Avenue, rolling up to a restaurant in Miami or making a grand entrance at a famous casino on the Las Vegas strip, there is no more classic icon of American style and panache than a stretched limousine.
These days, American style limos are internationally known and are the perfect luxury vehicle for special occasions. But how did American style Limos become such an icon of luxury and style? Who invented them and, best of all, where can you get hold of the best American style limos South Yorkshire has?
American style Limos
South Yorkshire might not hold the same international appeal as Las Vegas or Manhattan, but the iconic American style limos still give the same feeling of luxury and style. The original American style limos were cars designed with a partition between the driver and the passengers which made them perfect for wealthy patrons to be chauffeured around in privacy. The style pre-dates the automobile and so does the name, in fact although there is a region of France called Limousin, there is no definite explanation of why the iconic American style limos take their name from the place.
What we do know is that the king of all the American style limos South Yorkshire luxury lovers will know, the ‘stretch limousine’, was first produced in Fort Smith, Arkansas, around 1928. They were first produced by a coach company called Armbruster who were well known for providing transport for touring big bands during the dance band era. These extended wheelbase machines were instantly popularised by the style and popularity of band leaders like Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman. Soon, American style limos were the vehicle of choice for premium taxi services, hotels and tour companies.
