In 1938, the US political affairs accepted two Cadillac Convertibles, which stretched 21.5 feet lifelong and weighed about 8 a thousand pounds. They were titled after the deep liners and called the "Queen Elizabeth" and the "Queen Mary." These vehicles built-in most failsafe generators, two way radios, and a satiated armory or implements of war. Harry Truman, Franklin Roosevelt, and Dwight D. Eisenhower, mistreatment these two Cadillacs during their several reigns, were the early Presidents to ride in both flamboyance and heightened safekeeping.
After the denunciation on Pearl Harbor, the heightened safety got even taller and an armor-clad limousine that was primitively closely-held by Al Capone was used.
