There might be a use (besides fire practice) for all those old Boeing 727-100s out there. A Guadalajara, Mexico, company has stripped the wings from one and turned it into a 50-seat luxury limousine. For about $300 an hour, Limousines de Guadalajar Vaca Meters will whisk you and your closest 49 friends around Mexico (a big diesel replaces the turbojets). Truck-style wheels and suspension replace the landing gear. Inside, passengers are treated to neon strobes, a dance floor, a bar and a "'romantic space in the back," according to Brunei.Direct.com.
