Jay Ohrberg, a Hollywood car customizer, set out to build the world’s longest car in the 1990s. Ohrberg’s masterpiece, based on a 1976 Cadillac Eldorado and suitably called “The American Dream,” grew to be 100 feet long and included luxury features like a helipad and a hot tub. Ohrberg’s customized Cadillac was eventually confirmed as the world’s longest by the Guinness Book of World Records, placing him in history as the world’s longest car builder.
The 100-foot-long limousine was forgotten in a parking lot at some time and was shown in a 2013 video with apparent body damage and a bare inside. On the other hand, the American Dream was saved from the lot a few years ago by the guys at Autoseum in Mineola, New York. They are currently working with the Florida-based automobile museum and tourist attraction Dezerland Park to restore the vehicle to its former glory.
The automobile was formerly situated in New York but is currently being repaired in Florida, according to Motor1. It had to be divided in half to be delivered down south. Still, according to the site, the automobile was always hinged in the middle for turning, so no hacksaws or plasma cutters were used to separate the front and rear ends for transportation.
The limousine’s restoration work began in August of 2019. It has already had most of the necessary exterior repair work; however, it still needs a fresh coat of paint. It is unknown if they intend to reopen the Jacuzzi, but it appears that The American Dream would be incomplete without it.
As the repair of the world’s longest automobile progresses, we’ll keep you updated. It may also be seen in its previous state of ruin in the video attached below.
