This is the motorcade of Bricklingston's presedent, Presedent Pepper. There are 3 police motorbikes which accompany the motorcade wherever it travels similar to the prime ministers convoy here in the UK


The First vehicle in the motorcade is the Communications Truck.

It is based of set 7635 but now fitted with a communications aerial on the drivers side along with a computer system controlled by Stephen who is the communications officer for President Pepper. Also fitted is a light bar on the roof as well as repeaters where the fog lights used to be. The car has also been modified to right hand drive

The Presidential Limousine

The Presidential limo is the car in which President Pepper gets driven around in. The vehicle is based on the car from set 7682 although it has been extended at the front with a new supercharged engine and fitted with front repeaters and roof lights front and rear while the rear has been lengthened and completely enclosed to protect the president. Fitted to the very back is seating for the secret service runners and the cars luggage compartment. It is driven by a mysterious figure who is dressed in black and does not speak, some say he has driven cars since he flew off of an aircraft carrier. It also has room in the front for the head of the Secret Service. In the rear of the vehicle you have the seating area for the president as well as his son pepper jr and any other people who he wishes to travel with. In the rear is also a computer system so the president can work while on the move.

The last vehicle is the Transport truck

The vehicle is again based of set 7635 but fitted with a new bull bar, supercharged engine, roof light bar front and rear and repeaters where the fog lights were. The vehicle has also been extended to fit the additional personnel it can now fit 5 people who include 4 members of the secret service as well as a fire saftey officer who always travels with the president. All the secret service personnel are trained in first aid

Hope you enjoy the pics

fully armoured including the invisible front side windows Posted Image

also the runners at the rear both carry pistols as do the accompanying motorcycles, also they usually have helicopter cover

also if you wish to see what happens when you try to attach the motorcade look at the motorcyclist behind the limo

yeah but where are the curves, where's the style. The name reflects the design, the beast. President Pepper wanted a classical vehicle with modern features
this is what the queen drives in here in the uk

Americans love their vehicles, such as American presidents. From William Howard Taft to Barack Obama, each U.S. president has had a special spot in his heart for his presidential car. Here's some fodder for next presidential car trivia contest, courtesy of the LA Times. Did you know that President Taft was not only the first United States president to use vehicles instead of horse and buggy, but that he also used an electric car? It's the type of stuff supporters of presidential car trivia must know. Dig in. Article source: US presidents and their cars, part 1.
