Brace yourselves for a new slew of ba-linged Chrysler 300s — only these'll longer than the ones already stalking urban boulevards like escaped panthers nosing around for a discarded TV dinner. The newest prom-night vomit wagons, however, will be factory issue. DaimlerChrysler is reportedly in final talks with limosine outsourcer Accubilt (which also builds the stretch Cadillac DeVille/DTS) to build moderately-stretched 300 sedans. The new limos, which will be about six inches longer than 300 sedans, will place Chrysler in direct competition with Lincoln and Cadillac — the major players in the limousine and town-car market.
