In March 2006 a reader (Mark S.) wrote to me: "was checking out your website…pretty damn cool. In 2001, I came across a black (originally maroon) 1963 Cadillac Coupe de Ville in Orange County, CA. It was owned by a little old lady (classic, typical story) who had babied it and garaged it for 20+ years. She was selling it for personal reasons. After talking with her for about an hour, she tells me the cars original owner was Elvis Presley. She even broke out photos of Elvis handing her the keys and original documents of ownership!! I couldn’t believe it. Needless to say, I didn’t haggle about the price with her. This long black, historic beauty now sits in my garage (with TWO car covers on it, of course!!). P.S. I forgot to mention, she said Elvis had purchased the car in Los Angeles, and he met her, and gave her the car in Palm Springs, summer of 64’.
