    Are you forgetting that part of the point of this is protection through intimidation....

    I know i am no the only one who is more afraid of the huge, ugly, brutish bouncers who stand outside nightclubs more than the pansy boyishly good looking ones....

    I vote YES!

    It's not intimidating though, it's just a fugly stretched Cadillac. Hideous!

    It's a rolling command bunker, not really a Caddy, it just has the skin of one. Other than that, it's a truck chassis--mostly--and a whole lot of by-hand custom work. It barely seats two across (total of 5 pax plus driver, IIRC), gets horrific mileage, and will probably never roll 10K miles in its lifetime.

    And you can't even roll down the "windows."

    It's just a shame it couldn't look as cool as it almost certainly is.

    If I had as many people hate me as I'm sure he will, I'd much rater ride around in that than something a little "sexier".

    Hideous. The wheels look like the cheap plastic chrome wheel covers you can get for $20 at AutoZone. I wish Cadillac would stop increasing the size of it's grilles and badges every time the design a new car. It...just...looks...vulgar.

    Still, the important part is that it can take a pretty big hit and keep rolling.

    "Beast" is an inappropriate name though - they should call it the "Bailout Express".:rolleyes:

    Actually it opens 3 inches on the driver window.


    And room for President's own blood for emergencies. They probably have a flame thrower and other goodies they are not publicizing.

    I think the grill could stand to be a little more ostentatious, otherwise it's beautiful.
