Elvis Presley and His Cars: A True Story about His Favorite Cadillac

Elvis Presley loved cars--take a look inside his (truly) favorite Cadillac! This is the story about Elvis Presley's 1972 Custom Cadillac Station Wagon and why Elvis loved it! (Note: This car has since been SOLD -- it is no longer for sale, but please enjoy the video!) A PERSONAL NOTE: (added in March 2012) [See more details below] I created this video as a tribute to Elvis Presley, one of my favorite philanthropists of all time. Revisiting it now, two years and 16,792 views later, I'm excited to say I still receive calls from this video today, even though the car sold long ago -- a testimony to the amazing power of YouTube videos! I'm also increasingly amazed at the power of creating and watching my own PERSONAL visualization videos (posted elsewhere on this channel). They've been almost magically effective in helping me clarify my vision, increase my passion & focus, and form the strategic partnerships necessary to fulfill my dream of making a huge positive difference in the world. To take this a step further, I've recently created a virtual community called the "Friends of Virgin Unite" group on Linkedin.com in support of Virgin Unite, my #1 favorite charitable foundation. If you share my passion to make a huge positive difference, I invite you to join us today! Create a Linkedin profile, then follow this link to join our group: http://www.linkedin.com/groups?about=&gid=4322881 See you there! (And please mention you learned about us on YouTube!) =====================================================

Stutz Blackhawk 1973
Stutz est une marque automobile Américaine qui a été fondée en 1912 par Harry C. Stutz et qui a produit des voitures jusqu'en 1935. En aout 1968, un financier New Yorkais, James O'Donnell, ressuscite la marque, il confie le design d'un projet de voiture néo rétro à Virgil Exner, un styliste réputé du Groupe Chrysler. Un prototype réalisé par Ghia et donc présenté en 1970 à l'Hôtel Waldorf Astoria de New York. C'est le début de l'histoire de la Stutz Blackhawk qui sera produite de 1972 à 1987. La Stutz Blackhawk est une voiture très spéciale : c'était la voiture la plus chère du monde en son temps ! Elle coûtait 43 000 $ en 1973, pour comparer, une Cadillac Eldorado 1973 très luxueuse coûtait environ 8 000 $. En quinze ans de production, la Stutz Blackhawk a été construite à 617 exemplaires seulement, tout modèles confondus. Le prix de la Stutz Blackhawk était très élevé car elle était totalement exclusive et très luxueuse pour son époque : sellerie cuir, climatisation, siège et vitre électrique, placage de bois précieux, métaux intérieurs en plaqué or ... La Stutz Blackhawk était assemblé à la main à Turin en Italie sur un châssis de Pontiac Grand Prix, elle était motorisé par un V8 General Motors de 7,5 litres de cylindrée préparé à 425 chevaux. Le prix astronomique de la Stutz Blackhawk la réservait à une clientèle plus que fortunée, parmi les propriétaires célèbres, on citera Elvis Presley, qui en possédait quatre, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Al Pacino, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Junior, Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Billy Joel, Mohammed Ali, Isaac Hayes, Wayne Newton, Curd Jürgens, le Shah d'Iran qui en possède douze, le Roi Fahd d'Arabie Saoudite, le Roi Hussein du Maroc.

"Elvis" and "Priscilla" TOGETHER AGAIN! 1978 Cadillac Eldorado X2
Two classic 1978 Cadillac Eldorados--one named ELVIS, the other, PRISCILLA. I bought the white Biarritz first, and named it ELVIS because Elvis loved Cadillacs, as I do. Then, I bought the red coupe and just could not resist naming it PRISCILLA. I'd love to have a third...I'd name it LISA MARIE, of course! It's been quite an adventure having these two classic Cadillacs. 1978 was the final year of production for the land yacht-sized Eldorado. I have an obsession with the last models of 1970's HUGE cars, before "downsizing" killed their elegance and style. When I was 16 years old, I went car shopping with my father, who was retiring and was treating himself to a nice car. At the local Oldsmobile dealership, I really was hoping he'd spring for the largest model, an Olds Ninety-Eight. He bought a Cutlass Supreme Brougham (the final year for the large Cutlass), which was a nice car, but, I was disappointed that he did not buy the biggest model. Now, I have two land yachts of my own.





Custom 1959 Cadillac Coupe De Ville at SEMA 2010
SEMA 2010 wrap up on Auto123.com : http://123.ly/bKGKUZ - Have you ever seen such a crazy Caddy? We certainly have not. Built by a couple from Harrington Park over a period of six years, this incredible Cadillac is nothing short of a feast for the eyes. And, a very expensive one. Apparently, the paint job alone cost a whopping $200,000! Beneath the mile-long hood is a staple from General Motors' portfolio: a 454 Ci big block V8. To it, a turbo 400 automatic transmission runs the power to the rear wheels. On the inside, the Wild Cad features perches from a Ford Thunderbird and a centre-mounted instrument cluster from a 1959 Chevrolet.
