Buy it? No. Drive it around? Yes.
If you do get it, at least have the decency to paint it something more tasteful. I'm thinking Mary Kay pink.....

Id paint it, tent it, remove that middle seat and hit the road. That'd be a great road trip car.

Agreed, with the bench seating it's just a glorified Passenger Van. With no partition between driver and passenger area and no lighting/electronics in the back, it's just a shuttle car.

Being a part time Limo Driver for over 20 years, I've driven a lot of cars/vans/Limos in the 6, 8, 10 and 14 passenger versions. Most of our cars are the Lincoln Town car and we do have a 14 pass Excursion and Hummer.....no Hot Tubs though.

'95 Caprice SS conversion - Bonny Buckets - 96 Column, Shifter and Console - 3.73 Gear and Herter tune - Z/28 Cluster - Blazer OH Console - Green/Pink bushings - Chromed Impala Wheels - Eibach Springs and Bilstein Shocks - Corvette Engine Dress - the list goes on and still more to do...it never ends.

limo

It is called a "formal limo" , "funeral limo" or a "transport limo". Either way, what a blast. Young people would love to go to prom in that color. I had a limo service in a previous life, and I would not repaint it.

Nope. I wanted one for the wife instead of a suburban we bought, but she didn't want one. Everyone would have their own door instead of crawling to the 3rd row.
