    I could be wrong here.....but I think Dean was talking about a 140" QVM. I've checked with several builders and they are denying that the 140" Town Car QVM exists. There are some building a 140" Excursion QVM. If you like, let me know and I'll dig up the info on that.

    He is stretching a used Town Car to 140" and he called me up to inquire about the builders. Not a QVM car..

    From the cars I have seen ( and I have seen a lot) the best 140" was built by Royal Coach by Victor located in C.A., I don't know if they have a website or not, we have an operator here who has had about a dozen of them and he keeps going back, that alone should tell you something, apart from the odd collision he says they are reliable.
    Hope that helps.

    If you need to recommed a 140" Excursion the value would be with a certified conversion. Not only would they be getting more for their $$$ (warranty, resale value, etc) but as many states/counties/cities outlaw non-QVM/CMC vehicles the future value and marketability will be enhanced.

    Please name the state and or county that specifically says that a non-QVM stretch is outlawed.

    just to clarify, RickE said as states outlawed them. I believe he meant in the near future, not they have already.

    David Merrill: This is for you. I just got my new 140" QVM stretch Excursion. We have had it for 10 days now and I am thoroughly pleased with it. It is a Executive Fantasy III. It drives fantastic and the clients love it. The fit and finish is as good as I have seen. Mine is black with graphite interior. I had a 140" non-QVM Navigator and the difference in interior room is amazing. The Excursion is much wider and roomier. I can't believe how much better it rides. Just thought I would let you know about it.

    Wade,

    May I ask what it cost you? If you don't want to disclose that publically, feel free to email me privately.

    Thanks
