LCT takes a look at the major news events of 2002
As prom and wedding season kick into high gear, this is the time of year when many requests are made for 10-and 12-passenger limousines. You may or may not know it, but there are no QVM- or CMS-certified limousines in existence that accommodate that many passengers. For example, the maximum seating capacity for 120-inch QVM-certified Lincoln limousine is nine – eight rear passengers and one driver. Some allow even less.
Due to financial reasons often operators would rather buy a used sedan with a new conversion opposed to a QVM- and/or CMC-certified vehicle. However many fail to realize that the product safety is measured by the weight of the vehicle.
A new era has emerged in the limousine industry.
Moloney Coachbuilders was started in 1967 and since then there have been over 12,000 limousines manufactured with the Moloney nameplate.

Hotels and resorts are in need of reliable transportation providers since many of these facilities include limousine transportation among their guest amenities.
