WELL WHO WOULDN'T BE? It's a Soviet-era retread boxy enough for iron window curtains. Sorry to burst Vladimir Putin's nationalistic ego, but the Russians just don't do limos very well. Even the Kim Jong ruling dynasty of Stalinist North Korea used Lincoln-Continentals for the Dear Leader's funeral last December. So we at LCT would like to make a diplomatic suggestion to the KGB-schooled President Putin: Look West to the free world for your limousine; President Obama really likes his limo. Since Putin has rigged himself to be in office until 2024, that's a long time to be riding around unhappy in a limo. To come to think of it, the 2013 International LCT Show in Las Vegas has the best limousine selection in the entire world. If a head of state can't find one there, then maybe it's time to step down. -- Martin Romjue, LCT editor
