LA’s Limousine Connection Celebrates 35 Years

Posted on August 28, 2013 by

The showbiz kid, Chris Hundley, who made a career early on as a child actor, is now celebrating the 35th anniversary of his company Limousine Connection. I drove up to headquarters in North Hollywood, Calif., yesterday for Hundley to show me around the office and fleet and talk about what has made his business such a success over these 35 years.

The staff there couldn’t have been more gracious, and with Hundley being an avid car fan, he showed me one of the cool modifications he has done to a fleet vehicle. The alteration is subtle, but Hundley had the back seat of one of his Mercedes-Benz R350’s taken out and replaced with the back seat of a Mercedes-Benz S Class. The extra cush seating and added leg room provide customers with that little extra comfort that can go a long way.

Hundley uses the R350 as his replacement for the Lincoln Town Car, opting not to invest in the MKT Town Car and preferring the R350’s lower entry height and 90ᵒ door hinge instead. He says that he took the extra lengths to order the Mercedes interior carpeting for the retrofit, although it is more expensive. He wanted it to look natural, as if it came off the assembly line like this.


Perhaps he’s done too good a job, because he says he hasn’t gotten much reaction to it from clients. But it’s an improvement in the user’s experience nonetheless, and Chris enjoys the look and feel of the finished job.

Look for a full profile on Hundley’s operation and 35th anniversary in the October edition of LCT Magazine.
