The Craziest Stretched Limo Ever Made Had A Pool And A Helipad

There is a limit to how long a stretched limousine can go for obvious reasons. But that limit has not bothered car customizer Jay Ohrberg from Burbank, California, who in the 80s, created what was known as the world’s longest car called American Dream. Ohrberg’s creation was a monstrosity. So, how long was this American Dream really? Oh, nothing much. It was just 100 feet long (that’s 30-freaking-meters!). Holy mother of… That’s absolutely insane! And oh, it had 26 wheels to go with that length. Mind. Absolutely. Blown. Continue reading The Craziest Stretched Limo Ever Made Had A Pool And A Helipad

Suzuki Had Us Going Ga-Ga With A Jimny Pickup Truck And SUV Concepts

We posted a handful of what if a certain automaker made this and that (like this one HERE).

What If Rolls-Royce Made A Big Rig, Minivan, Or… A Batmobile?

Over here at Mikeshouts, we love to let our imaginations run wild and so, when a hat tip that pitched the idea of what if a luxury marque like Rolls-Royce made other type of class of vehicles outside of its comfort zone, we sit up with eyebrows raised and asked ourselves, yeah, what if?
