World’s Longest Car Stretches Over 100ft Long With Pool And Helipad Inside


World’s Longest Car Stretches Over 100ft Long With Pool And Helipad Inside

It broke its own Guinness World Record.

The super limousine dubbed “the American Dream” was built in 1986 by car customer Jay Ohrberg in California. It was initially 60ft long before it was extended to 100ft to clinch the world record. The world’s longest car has since featured in several movies before finally ending up in a warehouse located in New Jersey.

As the car grew dilapidated, Michael Manning [pictured below], the Autoseum Technical Teaching Museum owner in New York, took on the task of restoring it. The enormous costs involved in repairing a vehicle of its size slowed Manning’s progress, but then he didn’t give up on it.

“I first found the car at an auto body show in New Jersey, and it was garbage. It was covered in graffiti, the windows were broken, the tires were flat but I fell in love with it anyway. I said I’m going to get his car, and I’m going to bring it back and restore it.”

When the lease for his Manning’s museum, according to Daily Star, terminated, he had listed the car on eBay in 2019, where it was bought by Michael Dezer, the owner of Dezerland Park Car Museum and Tourist Attractions located in Orlando, Florida. Manning journeyed with the car to Florida to assist Dezer with the restoration, and the pair did update it with an array of new features.

“On my way down, the hood blew off the car on 95, never to be found again. Thankfully we had three donors’ cars, so we took one of the hoods.”

We cut them [the donor cars] up, we replaced the whole cab of the car so we could drive it, the engine was replaced, all the tyres were replaced, the helipad was redone, the pool was redone.

It took Manning and Dezer about two and a half years to completely restore the American Dream. It will now be displayed at the Dezerland Park Car Museum. According to Manning, the vehicle was built to be displayed; hence it can’t be driven on the road because it’s too long.
