Years ago man looked upon a car and said "that's not long enough for me." It's been downhill ever since. With the help of our readers here's Jalopnik's list of the ten most obnoxious limo conversions.
The line between awesome and obnoxious is a fine one, but these ten vehicles (and a bonus!) end up on the wrong side of it. We'll just take a long-wheelbase Executive Town Car, thanks.
