CAPTION ONLY: THERE'S A WHOLE LOTTA' LIMO GOIN' AROUND IN RIVERSIDE

A limousine built in Riverside, Calif., cost $1.8 million and can carry 36 passengers in high style - fax machines, Waterford crystal, microwave and all. It's built to bend in the middle to go around curves. But the California Highway Patrol has curbed the limousine because at 661/2 feet it's 18 inches too long. No problem, Ultra Custom Coach general manager Kraig Kavanagh said Monday. He's doing some "cosmetic work" to make the 14,000-pound car street legal. The white Lincoln Town Car was built for Sheik Hamad Bin Hamdan Al-Nahayan of the United Arab Emirates to use when he visits the United States. The rest of the time, he leases it out.
