Hey, Hollyweird! Prius Is Not a Limo!

Posted on February 20, 2009 by LCT Magazine

FEDERAL JUDGES RULE: There you have it; a panel of FEDERAL! judges in Tampa have ruled that a Prius is not a limo. We hope this case sets a precedent nationwide, and delegitimizes the mousy little Prius as both a limousine and a livery vehicle. Using a skimpy Prius instead of a Town Car is like substituting a scrap of tofu for Prime Rib.

If we're going to consider the Prius for a limo, then, what the hell? Why not an xBox or a Matrix for a hearse, with the coffin sticking out?

We at LCT must admit that we get excited about the Oscars; NO, not because of the gaudy designer dresses, but because of all the LIVERY finery on display.

What really amuses us is the celebrity Prius shuffle; show up in the little Eg(g)o mobile, and then leave out the back door after the ceremony in some big black SUV, sedan, or stretch limo to the parties. Amid all the politically correct green posturing and stage drama, we're glad to see the sleek, big, black, luxury vehicles still command the back office and the box office. -- M.R.
