OK. I’m gonna’ play it straight with you. The original old school 21 foot long Popemobile with the bubble on top is up for sale. And I don’t know how to say this without seeming indelicate but…I want it. I want it bad.
That’s right, the 1964 Lincoln Continental Limousine, built at the special request of the Vatican to Ford Motor Company to convey Pope Paul VI through New York to address the United Nations on World Peace, is for sale. And I want it.
Dont’ think this is some flight of fancy. Pat and I have wanted something like this for a long time. Back in the 90’s we spent a lot of time after rehearsals for our “Spandau Ballet” cover band (until Patrick went all Flock of Seagulls on me) constructing our own Popemobile in my parent’s garage.
