Highway to Heaven...

Billy Graham was returning to Charlotte after a speaking engagement and when his plane arrived there
was a limousine there to transport him to his home.
As he prepared to get into the limo, he stopped and spoke to the driver.
"You know" he said, "I am 87 years old and I have never driven a limousine. Would you mind if I drove it for
a while?"
The driver said, "No problem. Have at it."
Billy gets into the driver's seat and they head off down the highway.
A short distance away sat a rookie State Trooper operating his first speed trap.
The long black limo went by him doing 70 in a 55 mph zone.
The trooper pulled out and easily caught the limo and he got out of his patrol car to begin the procedure.
The young trooper walked up to the driver's door and when the glass was rolled down, he was surprised to
see who was driving. He immediately excused himself and went back to his car and called his supervisor.
The supervisor asked, "Is it the Governor?"
The young trooper said, "No, he's more important than that."
The supervisor said, "Oh, so it's the President."
The young trooper said, "No, he's even more important than that."
The supervisor finally asked, "Well then, who is it?"
The young trooper said, "I think it's Jesus, because he's got Billy Graham for a chauffeur!"

John F. Kennedy's Assassination Limousine 1961 Lincoln Continental

The 1961 Lincoln Continental 4-door convertible sedan that President John F. Kennedy was riding in on that tragic day in November of 1963 when he was assassinated is now sitting on display at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich. It is part of a powerful image burned into the memory of many Americans. Even if you are too young to have personal memories of that dreadful event, you probably have seen images of this car for those horrible scenes that have been replayed so many times.

In 1964 the car received major reconstruction including a new engine, titanium armoring, five-layer multiplate bullet-proof glass, addition of a permanent "greenhouse" top, new communication system, and , of course, complete retrimming of the rear compartment.
