Cars and Airplanes

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

I'm so glad I didn't skip seeing Elvis Presley's Automobile Museum. Elvis had so many cool cars! He even had 2 pink ones! Who would've thought!?! Elvis? Pink? Really? I LOVED THEM! The jeep was so cute and reminded me of something from a Barbie Collection.HaHaHa One of the pink cars and the blue one below, were actually featured in two paintings (that can be found in the Heartbreak Hotel). I included those paintings below. He also had a cool purple car. It didn't start purple, it was actually white, but he painted it purple. It's a gorgeous eggplant color. He was also very generous and bought cars for family members, employees and friends. After seeing all of this, I felt like breaking out in song and singing Gary Numan's song CARS! HaHaHa Elvis owned 2 airplanes. A regular size plane, called the Lisa Marie and a smaller jet. He had special closets to hang his clothes. A gold toilet and sink on the plane. A huge bed. A hair salon. It was crazy WILD! LOL Also, a television? I didn't think they could signals back then (at least in the air)! HaHaHa Everything looked SO old, but it didn't smell musty. Unbelievable. They are thinking about getting rid of the planes though. They're really old. I'm finding out Elvis' estate was huge! More to come folks...more to come.

Lots of cars indeed, quite love the purple looking cadi!! So sweet :)) I can understand wanting your own cars and planes the way people were so obsessed with him and getting near him, it would have been a safer way for him to get around and an interest would spark in it having to get moving quickly around the world as well. Really gorgeous cars he bought, he had some style and taste :))) Happy Wednesday doll, hope you have a gorgeous day Xxxx

Wow I knew he had a bit of a car buying habit, but no idea about the planes! incredible! That must really be a huge place to visit, to have room for so many cars! And planes!

I'd love my own littler private jet one day...never going to happen, I can't sing like Elivs! But I can dream right? haha!

Wow, those cars are amazing! And I had no idea he had two planes, that is crazy! It's neat that he was generous with his wealth with buying cars for others. How fun to experience!

Oh, I only wish I could see everything in person! Thank you for sharing, Kim! x

You know, I have never really been that big on cars. But these are awesome! Vintage cars? In fun colors? Sign me up! I know that pink is thought of as a mostly "feminine" color, but I swear, pink cars are guy-magnets. Guys are ALWAYS asking me about my car!

Amazing collection of cars! My kids would have enjoyed that exhibit :) I guess Elvis was living the luxurious life of private jets before it even became popular!

Busola Coutts said...

I am so impressed by the collection of his cars. Oh my pink jeep is my favorite, hahaha. Now that is a classic!

That jeep does look like something from a Barbie collection!! Haha. I love his style, especially his long cars. In Detroit we had one of his cars at the Henry Ford museum and I was lucky enough to see it! I think it's sweet Pricilla decided to allow her car from her dad to be out in permanent display! Guess it's safer there for memorabilia sake.

I adore that Gary Neuman song (takes me back to high school--senior year, actually). :) Loving that pink Jeep; first, because it's pink (smile). Second, because I ADORE Jeeps. I've got a Jeep--but that sweet pink one is tons cooler! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

What a crazy place! Elvis really was one of the first celebrities in the sense that we know them today, with so much money he couldn't figure out how to spend it all. How fun to get to see this museum!

I've never been into cars but if I was, I think I would have Elvis' style! His cars were amazing.

Julie Corbisiero said...

Wow what cool cars Elvis owned and planes too! I can't picture him with a pink car! Maybe it was Lisa Marie's.

Ivana Split said...

why would somebody want to get rid of those planes! they're fabulous! Planes actually have much longer lifespan than cars, if they're properly maintained they can last for many decades. I use to be in the aviation business, so I know.

The cars look great too! wonderful post!

Thanks for sharing your trip!!

Alex Marten said...

Wow, those cars are amazing! And I had no idea he had two planes, that is crazy! But i definitely suggest him to use the car detailing service in San Francisco Bay area to get the best deal for their cars.
