Dallas is in the Super Bowl! Okay, How About AT the Super Bowl?
I saw this thing - it's like a giant combo limousine/Hummer/armored truck - pull up to a Dallas night spot recently and out climbed none other than Shaquille O'Neal. Then a couple weeks ago at a North Texas Super Bowl XLV event Tim Brown arrived in a VAULT. (I know what you're thinking, Tupac coulda used one of these back in '96. And you're right.)
Dallas-based VAULT Services plans to have 25 of their cutting-edge vehicles in Miami and I get the feeling these babies will be a hot product next month when the NBA All-Star Game and its accompanying posses hit town.
"Never before has a company dedicated a fleet of vehicles like this to major sporting events," says Vice President of Media Relations for VAULT Services LP Wally Lynn, a familiar Metroplex radio voice for two decades. "The VAULT fills a unique niche for our clients at high profile events in the post 9/11 world."
I rode in one of these monsters last year. Luxurious on the inside; bullet-proof on the outside. May be a bit much if you're just cruising to church or making a late entrance to an Observer staff meeting, but for pulling up to the prom, Deep Ellum or the NBA's Slam Dunk contest ... perfect.
Make a scene with peace of mind. Thumbs up.
