I may be way off on this (which is very likely) but somehow I seem to recall this or one like it having something to do with a Cadillac dealership in Memphis.

It is such a weird photo -- and one that some might choose to use as an example of Elvis having really gone off the deep end.

"I can't hold myself in line."

Can we see the colour pic laid flat? As the black & White doesn't look right to me, looks like some sad ETA & not E at all? Cadillac dealership in daytime in a jumpsuit? "off the deep end" indeed John if is Elvis.

If it is Elvis, and I assume it is, he had to have just came home from being on tour. He stayed in his jumpsuit instead of changing on the plane and upon arriving in Memphis, went straight to the dealership.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

If that's the case then the jumpsuit junkies should be able to confirm a date. Does it look like any that he's known to have worn at any particular shows?

He looks short, hair doesn't sit right ( sorry, it's my job! ) & his gut just looks lot bigger than has done whenever I have seen him in that suit............... isn't black usually slimming?

At first glance I would say it's an ETA, but looking at the persons behind him, I think it is Elvis. But somehow he doesn't look like himself. :roll:

Elvis wore other stage suits as well in his spare time in ´75.

........................ all at night, in those three supplied pics? £10 to charity if someone proves conclusively it's Elvis cos I don't think it is.

It's possible he could have had a yen to car shop in-between shows. If so, this date might apply:

June 1, 1975 - after the AS gig in Huntsville (where he wore the suit)

Huntsville is 250 miles from Memphis, a very quick flight by plane.

God, I so hope he wasn't just wearing that thing around town.

Given and back-up crew and the jumpsuit I don't doubt it's Elvis. Whatever compelled him to wear that costume during the day while shopping for cars in Memphis is something beyond my line of reasoning

It's a double-bluff !

He wanted to slip out incognito & wearing that get up made everybody assume it was an imitator & they left him alone !

Yeah, it really is a weird pic. I have never doubted that it's Elvis, though. Who knows why he would be in his jumpsuit. Elvis did his share of quirky things.

Thanks for the overhead pic, James...

Before Madison, it was Southern Motors, Inc.

I stopped for a few shots of this place last December. It's a lot closer to downtown than I thought. Its across Union Ave. from and about a block up from the baseball park.

Yes, its been covered. My point though was the former business name and that the photo of Carl and Sam were taken there. I should probably have started another thread with a more descript title but thought to just keep them all together.
