The Irish Popemobile is now available as a rental. There are many one-of-a-kind vehicles that you can rent. But none will draw more attention than The Popemobile. That's right - now you can rent the Irish Popemobile which recently underwent a $77,000 makeover. Apparently it has quite a history behind it. This Popemobile was originally used in 1979 during Pope John Paul II’s visit to Ireland, enabling him to be close to the crowd and move through easily.
