I wonder if this is Kennedy's famous SS-100-X with one of its removable tops on.

I don't know about LBJ, but I'd feel pretty uneasy about riding in a car that someone was assassinated in.

From Wikipedia: 'President John F. Kennedy's limousine, in which he was assassinated, was a 1961 Lincoln Continental convertible, which also came with a Plexiglas bubble top in the event of inclement weather. The vehicle was custom built by Hess and Eisenhart of Cincinnati, and was known as the SS-100-X. The car was retrofitted with armor plating, a permanent sedan roof, a new interior, an improved air-conditioning system, electronic communications equipment, bulletproof glass, a new paint treatment and cosmetic alterations to remove damage incurred during the assassination, among other changes. The car is on display at the Henry Ford Museum.'
The Johnson administration didn't replace SS-100-X until 1965.

Yeah, using the car your predecessor was killed in! It does seem a bit strange.

I know, you'd think they would have considered it bad luck to carrying on using a Presidential limousine that one President got killed in! Maybe they really wanted to get their money's worth out of it :whistle:
