"While I was driving a truck, every time a big shiny car drove by it started me sort of day-dreaming. I always felt that someday, somehow, something would happen to change everything for me. I would daydream about how it would be." - Elvis Presley

Elvis owned a 1967 Cadillac Eldorado which he later sold to actress Pat Priest who starred with him in the movie Easy Come Easy Go. According to Chris Butler (2010), she explained:
While she and Elvis were talking on the set one day, Priest mentioned she was looking to buy a new car.
"]Elvis] told me, 'Well, do you want to buy my Cadillac? I'll make you a good deal.'" Hansing paid $3,000 for Presley's 1967 Cadillac El Dorado convertible with black leather interior.
"I bought it and drove it a couple of years," remembered Hansing, who then traded it in for a new Pontiac. She never told the dealer it was Presley's car when she traded it.
Today as an antique dealer, she understands the value of the car.
