The story behind Elvis Presley's 1968 Cadillac Eldorado Coupe is well known and it has an incredible history. Elvis Presley spotted this Topaz Gold Firemist beauty parked outside a Memphis Cadillac dealer showroom on December 28, 1967 and decided on the spot that he had to have it. He immediately made it his daily transportation and reportedly used the car for approximately thirteen months. At one point the car would not start and Elvis furthered his reputation for shooting displeasing inanimate objects by deploying his side-arm and plugging the car in the right front fender. The bullet hole still remains there today.

Elvis drove the car up until the birth of his daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, on February 1, 1968. A short time afterward, Elvis gave the Cadillac to the stepfather of his wife, Priscilla Presley, as a gift. It saw very little use until being purchased by a Mr. Johnny Mac who imported it to Australia and used it for promotional purposes. It was then purchased by four Australian businessmen in 1987 who put the car on display as part of an Elvis Presley Exhibition, together with records and other memorabilia, near Perth, Australia. In 1994 the entire exhibition was sold to the Memphis Rock Cafe in Queensland, Australia where the car was on display in an air-conditioned glass enclosure until late 1998.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.

This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.

The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
