2) Uncomfortable Driver?: Original models of the limo weren't actually stretch. They had a separate compartment for the driver and the customer much like today's limousines, however the driver's seat was not covered! - Think of it like a paddle bike (Tuktuk) from South East Asia!

4) The band on the bus goes all around, all around, all around: Big bands would normally hire limos to drive around their equipment so they became known as big band buses!
