Hello and Welcome!   This is a group for collectors of professional car models. I started this group because I have been collecting professional car models for many years. Professional cars are those designed for or after market altered for professional use. Many are by coach-builders and include but are not limited to limousines, hearses, ambulances, and the like. I am especially fond of those pieces with a tie into history. In my collection I have not discriminated against any vehicles no matter who may have used them. I have limos of US, USSR, and other countries heads of state. I have some papel limos and even Hitler's personal limo (that guy was so paraniod of bombs the armored plating put his car into the gallons per mile catagory). I find historical cars fascinating. I spent some years as a medic and am partial to ambulances and hearses (although the presence of the later was usually bad for business). I would like to encourage everyone in the group to post your pro car pics . They don't have to be coach-built. They just need to be designed or converted for professional use. I would also like to hear any stories or history connected to the models or the prototypes of the models you may have. I am always on the lookout for new finds in this catagory so lets have fun parading our professional car models!

Wow guys its been a while since I've been on. Here is a favorite from the past. My Dad bought me one when I was young and I proceeded to drive it into the ground. So, of course I had to buy this part of my childhood back like so many others. I have always thought the Corgi Lincoln stretch was an excellent model with crush velvet carpeting, even in the trunk! After inserting a battery the Presidential TV lit-up in the back area. The model came with cartoon type screens of a clown, a rocket lift-off, and others. Because I have loose versions of both available colors (blue/cream and copper/black) I replaced the cartoon screen with a miniature scene of a girl posing on a Harley. After all, I figure Presidents are human too. At least most of them.

Sorry guys,  meant to say with the bubble-top removed for JFK's inaugural adress parade.

Hey guys,   This is a recent adition to the pro car collection. The 1950 Lincoln Cosmopolitan was ordered for presidential service by Harry S. Truman. He had a bad taste in his mouth for GM after he was denied use of they products during his campaign. Hense a Ford Lincoln special order. The "bubble-top" was added in 1954 and the car saw active service till 1965 when it was retired to the Henry Ford Museum where it can be seen today. JFK and Jackie also rode in this car without the bubble-top removed for JFK's inaugural parade (a habit that would lead to a fatal mistake in years to come). Still this vehicle is very unique and for the price ($36) the model is outstanding.
