The world’s longest car known as “The American Dream” might soon come back to life again with current heavy restoration work being done on it. This car was built by Jay Ohrberg, a famed auto customizer back in the 1990s and was based on the 1976 Cadillac Eldorado model. The astonishing vehicle became popular when its 30.5meters (100ft) length made it bag the Guinness world record title of the “Longest car in the world”.

Sometimes last year, we once published an article detailing the world’s longest car with a pool and a helicopter landing pad, but we, however, mentioned that the car has been abandoned. Well, the good news today is that an auto museum in the United States is currently carrying out restorations on the car and it might soon come back to life.
From past records, the world longest car used to be a massive Cadillac Limousine that boasts of a segmented center and two engines, making it require two drivers to get it going on its 26 wheels. The FWD configuration of the car really helped in its construction because it meant that the vehicle had no floor humps or complicated driveshafts to deal with. Some of its “catchy” features during its glory days include a helipad, swimming pool alongside a diving board, putting green, and a hot tub. Yes, it does have all of that fancy stuff!

According to fresh reports, the Coronavirus pandemic temporarily halted restoration works being done on this limousine, but the auto museum handling the restoration has promised to bring the car back to live by 2021. We keep our fingers crossed till then.
