At the October 1999 Hershey meet in Pennsylvania was a maroon red 1959 Coupe de Ville with black and white interior. Documentation with the car showed Elvis's name as the purchaser, and it was one of 14 "give away" cars for charity, selling immediately for approximately $20,000 and shipped by Horseless Carriage to Tokyo. It is most unlikely that Elvis used this car himself (he was in Germany with the US Army in 1959), and in fact the seller claimed it was a gift for Elvis's bank manager.
In the July issue of "Readers Digest", the book bonus is from Alanna Nash's new book "The Colonel: The Extraordinary Story of Colonel Tom Parker and Elvis Presley". Here is a direct quote:
"British journalist Christopher Hutchins interviewed Tom Parker in 1993, four years before the wily old manager passed away. Wasn't Elvis the son the Colonel never had? Hutchins probed. "I have to be honest," Parker answered. "I never looked on him as a son. But he was the success I always wanted."
Most Beautiful Girl In The World.
One line: "Did you happen to see the Most Beautiful Girl In The World" [applause and laughter]
Elvis says: "I tell you what. I'll learn that song and do it all. (pause) 'Cause Charlie Rich needs the money."
