Elegant Image Limousine Service was started in October 1998 by John Forney, who still owns and operates the company with the help of his daughter and General Manager, Heather. The company’s headquarters are in Morro Bay, where all of the Limousines are kept and maintained. Before Elegant Image, John chartered fishing boats out of Miami, San Diego, San Simeon and then Morro Bay. With the growing Wine interests in SLO County, John decided there was a demand to transport people on land, to Wineries. Today there are 14 new Limousines in Elegant Image’s Fleet, and a team of Chauffeurs that are top notch professionals.
