Lightbox with JS pulldown menu

I'm using a JS pulldown menu, but would like each menu option to open up a different lightbox slide show.

Below is my code...

How can this be done?
///////////// JAVASCRIPT MENU /////////////////////////
var anylinkmenu4={divclass:'anylinkmenu', inlinestyle:'width:150px; background:#DFFDF4', linktarget:'_new'} //Second menu variable. Same precaution.
anylinkmenu4.items=[
	["Stretched Limo", "http://www.cnn.com/"],
	["City Car", "http://www.msnbc.com/"],
	["SUV", "http://www.google.com/"],
	["Luxury Car", "http://news.bbc.co.uk"] //no comma following last entry!
]

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

//////// PROPOSED LIGHTBOX CODE ////////////////////////////
<a href="images/limo_intro1.jpg" rel="lightbox[limo]" title="Stretch Limousine Information">Test Link</a>
							<a href="images/limo_ext1.jpg" rel="lightbox[limo]" title="Stretch Limousine Exterior"></a>
							<a href="images/limo_int1.jpg" rel="lightbox[limo]" title="Stretch Limousine Interior"></a>
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

/////////// CURRENT CODE FOR PULLDOWN /////////////////////
<map name="linkbanner1" id="linkbanner1">
            <area shape="rect" coords="23,10,178,42" href="fleet.php" class="menuanchorclass" rel="anylinkmenu4" onclick="return GB_showCenter('Email', this.href, 460, 565)" alt="Email" />
			</center>
			</map>

Assuming that " PROPOSED LIGHTBOX CODE" is your menu, I would suggest changing that to be a nested <ul> or <ol> - both for ease of use (in accessing and manipulating the DOM) as well as for SEO benefit. Right now your sub-level dropdown items are being stored in javascript and search enginges likely won't crawl that.

Once you create your menu as a <ul> or <ol> I would suggest checking out FancyBox? You can apply classes to organize groups (slideshows) as you requested very easily. Instructions are here:

There are a million free examples of <ul> dropdown menu's on google (i.e. http://www.cssplay.co.uk/menus) so I wouldn't get too attached to the one you are using currently.
