Panama Popemobile awaits the pontiff

The made-in-Panama Popemobile for Pope Francis when he attends World Youth Day in the capital city is ready. The double cabin truck has an electric ladder, 360-degree swivel chair, red carpet, railings for better support and sustainability of the Pope while standing, and a window in the back of the cabin so that the pontiff has better communication with the driver.

Recycling Popemobiles? Now that's funny (only because it's too practical)!

You are probably closer. $55,000 for the vehicle and the pocket money of $245,000 for the politicians. Would certainly be less expensive to simply fly his personal vehicle around the world on his tour than to build a new one everywhere he goes.

What happened to the Pope-mobile (made in Columbia) that the Archbishop received about a week to 10 days ago from Columbia?

I’d guess more like $300,000.00.

Cost for this one-time event piece of equipment? I'm thinking $55,000; anyone want to take guesses? Probably will never be published anyway.
