Hey Arnold! You’re California’s new governor and surely you want to travel in style when you’re in Sacramento, the capital of the Golden State.

You might give the friendly people at Lakeshore Pacific limousine service a call – they have just the vehicle for you: an H2 Hummer stretch that seats 16 passengers.

Gov. Schwarzenegger is well known as being a big fan of Hummers –he reportedly owns at least one and prior to being elected governor was regularly seen driving himself around his Los Angeles neighborhood in one. He also was reportedly one of the first private citizens to buy a military Humvee several years ago.

James Mickelson, manager of Lakeshore Pacific, said some people think Schwarzenegger is inside when they see the company’s white H2. “I have people coming up to me saying, ‘Is Arnold in there?’” Mickelson told the Sacramento Bee.

Arnold has not yet been a client of the company, based in nearby Granite Bay, but its Hummer is quite popular, in addition to being the only one in the Sacramento area. It is rented three or four times a week and has paid for itself, driver Steve Wheeler told LCT.
