The pinnacle of arriving in style in a stretch limousine has been a quintessential American cultural icon almost since the automobile first rolled off the lines in Detroit.

But first, let's take a look at stretch limos through the ages.
Before renting a Limotote stretch limousine, a story about how a stretch came to be will get you in the mood necessary to ride in such elegance. The term limousine is a French word denoting the hood of a cloak of the inhabitants of the area of France with the same name that resembled the portion of early cars where passengers sat. Early car models often had the driver in the front of the vehicle, unencumbered by a roof, whereas passengers would sit in a covered carriage behind the driver. This naturally grew out of the same design of stage coaches, where the ‘driver' would sit and drive the horses ever forward, when passengers would enjoy the lap of luxury in the covered carriage.
The first stretched limos arrived in America in 1928 when a larger vehicle was needed to transport ‘big bands' of the day in comfort and accommodate their band instruments. They were often called ‘big band buses' but quickly the car companies saw the allure of the stretch limousine for wealthy clients as well to provide more space and comfort. Probably the most famous of all stretch limousines is the line of limos that have carried the US Presidents.
