Which presidential car has been the most impressive?

The White House has seen its fair share of distinguished residents over the years, and so has its garage—which has played host to a wide range of different vehicles since William Howard Taft became the first U.S. president to hit the road in an “official,” government-provided car in 1909. In addition to Taft’s Pierce-Arrow, for example, John F. Kennedy was known for a 1961 Ford Thunderbird limo, while Franklin Delano Roosevelt tooled around in a Packard Twelve; Richard M. Nixon was known to travel in a 1950 Oldsmobile 98.

But echoing the 2012 national election itself, Autobytel readers voted for President Barack Obama and his Cadillac One—aka the Beast, with Cadillac styling and a medium-duty truck chassis—as the most impressive of them all.
