CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- When the stars come to town, they are in need of an elegant way to get around. For that reason limo companies cashed in big during the Democratic National Convention.
"It was fun, it was exciting, it was different," said Lisa, a driver for SilverFox Limos.
James Weymann started the company back in 2004.
"We did in six days, our two-and-half month average month for the year; that's a huge number we were working around the clock," said the owner.
Weymann told NewsChannel 36 he carried numerous celebrities around town, but Weymann's most interesting story involves 'Desperate Housewives' star Eva Longoria.
No, she didn't get a lift, but when she needed an emergency replacement for a formal gown Weymann was sent to Neiman Marcus to get it, and two seamstresses to make sure it fit.
"Of course the girls came back down and they were all excited and it was like, 'Oh my God, Eva Longoria gave me a big hug,'" said Weymann.
He told NewsChannel 36 that he typically runs three to four limo's a day, but during the DNC it was 38 forcing him to lease extra vehicles.
