HARNESSING HYPE:
One sure way for an operator to gain lasting exposure, connections, and clients is by getting a TV or movie gig.

Best Transportation of St. Louis will hit a high-profile this fall by providing limousine service to a local family getting their home made over for ABC TV's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."

Another operator, Head Limo of Las Vegas, Nev., is profiled in this month's issue of LCT for having been the limousine company featured on VH1's hit reality show, "Flavor of Love," starring rapper Flavor Flav and former supermodel Brigitte Nielsen. Owner Ricky Head, standing 6-feet 9-inches, and Flavor Flav are pictured above.

As LCT Magazine prepares for its International LCT Show in Las Vegas in January 2009, the event theme, "Reach For the Stars," can be taken literally in the pursuit of celebrity-studded transportation opportunities. -- M.R.
