Posted on January 14, 2009 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

CLEARWATER, Fla. — As history is about to be made in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday with the inauguration of President Obama, a bit of Presidential history is on display in the Tampa Bay area.

Ambassador Limousine and Sedan of Clearwater, Fla., with a luxury fleet of more than 20 vehicles and owned by Ken Lucci, is showing two former White House Limousines from the owner’s personal collection in commemoration of the inauguration.

CNN aired a story on the limousines Jan. 6 during the morning news between 6 a.m. and Noon. The limousines toured Clearwater and visited local historical locations around the Tampa Bay area.

The two vehicles, both Cadillac limousines, served at the White House in the 1970s and 1980s. One was retired by the Secret Service as late as 2005. The vehicles feature Presidential seals, inside and out, fender flags, red lights and even a siren.

One vehicle is a 1975 Cadillac was used by the Secret Service as a lead car in parades and the other a 1984 Fleetwood that was delivered to the White House during the Reagan Administration along with the now famous “High Top” Limousine on display at the Reagan Presidential Library.

Lucci also works as a corporate security consultant, collects Cadillacs, and likes the history of Presidential transportation. His collection of Presidential and Secret Service memorabilia is also available for viewing along with the limousines at Ambassador Limousine’s corporate offices, 1172 Turner St. in Clearwater.
