Basically limousines have just gone out of style, Bouweiri said. The limousines only go out a couple days a week, if we’re lucky. At their peak, in the mid-1990s, the company owned 15 limos.
Who can forget the ultimate scene in “Pretty Woman,” where Richard Gere pulls up to Julia Roberts’ Skid Row apartment in a white stretch limo, the knight in shining armor ready to save her?
Or when Cameron pleads with Ferris Bueller to “rent a limo … a nice stretch job with a TV and a bar” instead of borrowing his father’s Ferrari?
-No one above a certain age, probably.
But what those two classic limo scenes have in common, having been released more than 25 years ago, is the reason why Reston Limousine, one of the largest executive transportation companies in the region, owns just a few of its namesake vehicles anymore.
