Elvis Presley had an interest in anything with wheels.
Following high school, he drove a truck for Crown Electric Co. delivering electrical supplies while studying to be an electrician prior to his musical success.
Records show that he purchased over 200 cars, motorcycles, scooters and golf carts in his lifetime, many of which he gifted to friends, family, colleagues and occasionally even complete strangers.
Legend has it that The King received a great deal of enjoyment by pulling over unsuspecting motorists and flashing one of his many Sherriff badges, leaving the drivers star struck and more than a little confused. Elvis was frequently pulled over by the cops himself, however he was usually let off with an autograph.
Traditionally only reserved for dignitaries and royalty, Elvis was granted permission to purchase a Midnight Blue Mercedes-Benz 600 Gross Pullman limousine in 1970 that was equipped with an impressive list of modern luxury amenities, including a sunroof, divider window, telephone and a television - now immortalised by CMC in this magnificent 1:18 scale model
