Jay Ohrberg was responsible for the creation of many popular cars today, including the famous delorean from “Back in the past”, KITT from “Without fear” or the Batmobile. So the idea of creating such an amazing car could not help but be born in his head.
The design was carried out in the 1990s. The 1976 Cadillac Eldorado was significantly extended, reaching 100 feet (30.5 m). In addition, there was a second engine, a connector for easy maneuvering, a control center for the co-driver, who was responsible for the rear axle (or rather axles) and 22 extra wheels. Thanks to this, in 1999 the limousine was entered into the Guinness Book of Records as the longest car in the world and still is today.
If that was not enough, the car was equipped with, among others, a helipad, a swimming pool, a jacuzzi, a water bed and a miniature golf course (or should we say miniature golf). As you can see, the car was called “American Dream” for a reason.
Unfortunately, over the years this car has been badly neglected and his condition deteriorated significantly. In 2014, the car was bought by the Autoseum (a museum of technical education), which was located near New York. The director of the place, Mike Manning, had an ambitious plan bringing the limousine back to its heydayhowever, ultimately none came out for financial reasons.
Manning did not give up, however, encouraging Cadillac’s restoration. He contacted the famous collector and director of Dezerland Park in Florida, Mike Dezer. He agreed to buy the car and, in partnership with Manning, repaired the car.
Work began in the summer of 2019. It began with preparing the Cadillac for transportation, which was not easy. Finally, it was decided cut the car in half and use a tug to transport it from Long Island to Orlando, Florida. There, the car was dismantled, all rust spots were removed and items missing from the standard Eldorado were replaced.
Although the greatest works have already been completed, the finished car will probably be presented only in the spring of next yeardue to the delays caused by the disaster corona virus. There is still no guarantee that all devices will be recreated, but its most important feature is height Along with seven Volkswagen Golfs lined up one behind the othersoon it will delight guests.
