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!

See you there! (And please mention you learned about us on YouTube!)

"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.

'Elvis Presley Pink' Pagani Zonda C12 S 7.3 Roadster at Auction
Shmee150 films the pink Pagani Zonda C12 S 7.3 Roadster that's recently
been sold via a Bonhams Auction at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2011. You
can see some shots of the car before watching the auction unfold.
The car is one of a few original C12 S cars although has the larger 7.3l
engine but the various F-spec conversions. The paint job however is a
little bit hit and miss - could you live with the colour?
The car sold for a hammer price of £290,000 which on the assumption it
remained in the UK with VAT would make for a total of £390,000 after all
Camera: Shot on a Sony CX520 in FullHD and uploaded in 1080p
