Godfather I - 1940 Packard

Antique & Classic Limousines History

These fine automobiles have a history all their own. They are from an era that people associate with elegance, grace and power. The commanding look of the sleek black auto with it's massive headlights and sidemount spares transports you back in time.

The 1940 Packard provided just this type of elegance when Clint Eastwood choose this car for use in his Academy Award winning film "Flags of Our Fathers". The famous Chicago Drake hotel provided the dramatic backdrop as the Chauffeur driven 1940 Packard eased in front of the hotel and the elegantly dressed couple emerged.

The Packard was at the reopening of Wacker Drive on a very snowy day in November of 2002. Mayor Daley commented that it was a "nice looking automobile"

 

Godfather II - 1940 Cadillac

The 1940 Cadillac we offer has it's own famous history. The World Federation of Wrestling contracted the 1940 Cadillac in 2006 to appear in a nationwide televised entrance of RAW. Triple H and John Cena were quite impressed by the gangsters that stepped off the running boards and exited out of the car with Tommy Guns drawn. Dan drove the car right up to the ring as the crowd thundered.

This car was also used in "A League Of Their Own" the movie about the girls baseball teams back in the 1940's. That stared Madona, Gena Davis and Tom Hanks. The car also appeared in the movie "Public Eye" with Joe Pesci.

Let Antique and Classic Cars transport you on this very special day. Sit back, relax, toast to new beginnings and let everyone driving by catch a glimpse of you being driven in such an elegant and powerful automobile as the 1940 Packard or 1940 Cadillac limousine.

Dan Colyer


Dan ColyerDan Colyer knows a few things about cars. He bought his first Cadillac when he was 19 and his passion never waned. He appreciated the sleek lines the Cadillac offered. He is the father of three daughters and he always chauffeured them to school, roller rink, basketball games, proms and on their wedding day, in his various limousines over the years. Dan is a natural and excellent when it comes to escorting and making the bride feel elegant on her special day.

Prior to owning these elegant and graceful automobiles, Dan did some serious stock car racing. For 20 years he filled his need for speed driving car #007 under the alias of "James Bond" at the small but exciting track know as Raceway Park, formerly located in the south side of Chicago. Drawing on this ability makes Dan an excellent chauffeur with the skills it takes to navigate through busy city traffic.

Dan has been in the Classic Limousine business since the early 90's. If you are not quite sure of where to take all those fantastic photos to capture your day in print just ask Dan.
