The Secret Service will commission a brand new Cadillac to carry Barack Obama when he is inaugurated as president on Jan. 20. But this isn’t a car model that you can test drive at the local dealership.
The Cadillac limousine has 8-inch-thick doors. Inside, the president will have various communication devices, including telephone and Internet access.
Cars were first used by the Secret Service in 1907. They used an H. White Steamer to follow Teddy Roosevelt in his horse-drawn carriage.
