Michael L. Bromley '86 is the author of Stretching It: The Story of the Limousine
. The book is an automotive and social history of the limousine from its origins in carriages to the monster-sized, luxurious vehicles of today. Co-written with Tom Mazza, the work is lavishly decorated in both black-and-white and color.
"Comfort, style, display, and social etiquette. Or just plain old outrageous. These are some of the ingredients to the long black cars that have haunted American streets and minds since the motor took to wheels."
"This book traces the history of the stretch limousine, covering the classic, stately styles of the early days to the sleek, contemporary, and luxury -filled models of today. Stretching It: The Story of the Limousine, is the first comprehensive look at limousines, chauffeurs, and riders of the back seat, from the earliest to the present." -amazon.com
