Wonder How: The President's Pimped Out Caddilac

Ever wonder what Obama rides around in?

General Motors has built Limo First, it is not so much a car as armored personnel involved in the Cadillac body. It is the codename of "diligence", but given its weight, wheelbase and the level of fuel-like protection, Caddy One has been nicknamed "the Beast."

The limousine carrying President Obama down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House today is the latest in a long line of Cadillacs to join the First Fleet in recent years. Although GM and the Secret Service vehicle specs jealously and secrets, you can bet Obama's trip is the hardest, the most sophisticated car anywhere. Think of it as the equivalent of Air Force One street

I don't understand why all cars aren't explode-proofed like that. I mean, how hard can it be?
Or can I look to the Ford Pinto catastrophe as the answer?
