The United States Secret Service has started the process to begin to build the next generation presidential limousine with the posting of a contract proposal on the FedBizOpps.gov site for companies seeking to do business with the federal government.

I propose he pay for and drive a Chevy Volt with one DC policeman carrying a five shot revolver.
That should suffice.
Oh yea- convertible if possible.
I think “the Beast” is very appropriate for the president/anti-christ.
Nice..is that McLame driving?
Roosevelt must have gotten it out of storage.
In 1909, US President William Howard Taft ordered two Pierce-Arrows (and two White Model M Tourers) to be used for state occasions, the first official cars of the White House.
LOL, should be, but I think it’s Biteme Biden.
Make that a Chevy Dolt.
If hillary wins, it’ll be a battle tank,,,,, for the battle axe!
Except without the revolver. He wants to ban guns, doesn’t he?
I’d say a ‘horseless carriage’, but for zero, that’d only be half correct.
It will probably be a stretch version of the Prius.
Wasn’t Teddy POTUS before Taft?
Five shot, but only one bullet and that one in his pocket with a biometeric lock on it.
How about a golf cart?
LOL that armor is heavy.
I worked on the powertrain of the current one.
It’s a 26,000 pound rated truck chassis with a simulated Cadillac body.
Hillary doesn’t play golf does she? The timeline for the new one is inauguration 2017.
Rocket powered pushbroom with “comfortvibe” seating.
