Cat Goes for a Ride in a Limo

ENGLAND – A missing cat turned up 30 miles away – after climbing into a limo recently. Spunki, 2, jumped in the vehicle, which had been hired out by neighbors for a night out. Driver Paul Vaughn found the cat in his back seat in Lydney, Gloucester, and it took him a week to trace her owner in Bristol. Owner Lydia Crocker said, "She's never done anything like this."

DriveCam Featured on National Morning Show

SAN DIEGO – On Nov. 11, Good Morning America broadcasted a segment on DriveCam Video Systems.

A bus crash in Arkansas last month prompted the national morning show to focus on DriveCam's Driving Feedback System, which improves driving behavior and prevents collisions.

The segment featured Classic Transportation, a motorcoach company in New York, showing buses using the product and discussing how it has reduced the company’s collisions. In addition, DriveCam CEO Bruce Moeller, an expert in using technology for behavior management in large organizations, was interviewed in the segment.

Jackie Kennedy Limo up for Bids

BLENHEIM, Ontario – RM Auctions of Blenheim will put up Jackie Kennedy’s 1962 Lincoln Continental Limousine for bid Jan. 28 at the 6th Annual Vintage Motor Cars sale in Arizona.

Known as the “First Lady’s Bubbletop,” the black limo was designed by the Ford Motor Company’s Advance Vehicle division and custom built in 1961 by coachbuilders Hess & Eisenhardt of Cincinnati.

The car features a unique see-through roof. In addition, although it is not armored, it is designed with a one-piece transparent “bubble” over the rear-seat compartment to protect its occupants from the elements while allowing full visibility to the public when used in official motorcades and parades. It also has a one-piece black plastic “skin” that can be attached over the bubbletop to transform the vehicle into a true closed limousine.

The auction will be held at the Arizona Biltmore Resort in Phoenix from noon to 6 p.m. Jan. 28. For more information visit www.rmauctions.com.
