True, hiring a limo as part of your celebratory event in the city is a sure-fire way to up your party game, but what if you could actually own a stretch limo yourself?

Yes, according to this BC Kijiji listing, you now have the chance to fulfill the limo ownership dream you’ve had since hearing about it just now.
The vehicle itself is a 1995 Lincoln town car full stretch limousine.
According to the listing, “with a 4.6L v8 packed under the hood and a Holley 750 double pumper bolted to the hood, this is one mean machine!”
In addition, “if having eight people in the back wasn’t enough downforce to hang into those corners there is a functioning snowboard spoiler!”
The vehicle is described as “mechanically sound, [with a] new water pump fuel pump and block heater, along with a freshly rebuilt rear end with 3:73 gears.”
The body of the vehicle is “in pretty rough” shape, but “the interior is not too bad.”
Perhaps most importantly, “the divider and phone work and there is party lights and a good sound system in the back.”
So what is all this going to cost you? $2,000.
Not too bad, considering that a quick online search shows limo rental rates in Vancouver hovering between the $125 and $150/h mark.
Sound too good to be true? It’s not – provided you’re up for a bit of a drive to go get it.
The listing is Cranbrook, BC-based, but the ad notes the vehicle itself is actually located in Sparwood, BC – about an hour-and-a-half drive from Cranbrook, or *cough* 11 hours from Vancouver.
But hey, once this car is in your possession, you know it will be one helluva road trip home.
