Obama's Inauguration – What to drive to Washington D.C.

December 10, 2008

For Barack Obama’s inauguration, Washington D.C. is expecting blow-out crowds – nearly 1.5M additional visitors are estimated.  The 95,000 hotel rooms in the city are rumored to be sold out.  But, if you booked in time, perhaps you were able to get the “eco-inaugural” package offered by the Fairmont – you receive 4 nights in a suite tricked out with organic materials and use of a hybrid car.

Did you know that the first president to drive to their inauguration was Theodore Roosevelt?  While Obama will probably be driven in his new General Motors special edition, perhaps if you were one of the lucky few to snag a ticket, you can consider one of these fine vehicles:

The convertible Obama Caddie – come to the inauguration in style.  You could take the top down and sit on the top of the rear seat to really enunciate your support:

For those of you who may be inclined to drive a vehicle fueled by alternative energy, try this one, it’s powered by Hope:

And for the rest of you who may be driving your own vehicles, here are some handsome car flags to celebrate the newly elected President.

Measuring 9.5" x 7.75" with a 12" plastic flag pole that attaches to the side window in any vehicle, this flag is 100% polyester for superior durability and features one-sided printing for just $14.  Check it out here.

And here’s another option for your Barack Obama Car Flag – this one is now just $19 (that’s a 24% savings).
