Vehicle

One of the coolest vehicles I have ever seen was in the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tennessee.... Webb Pierce's "Silver Dollar" convertible.


Webb Pierce was a famous honky-tonk singer back in the 1950's, and apparently he was a pretty flamboyant guy. He paid $20,000 to have this 1962 Pontiac Bonneville customized. There are horseshoes on the gas and brake pedals. Ornamental handguns are mounted as handle bars, hood ornaments, and elsewhere. The original custom job had more than 1,000 silver dollars inlaid in the upholstery. In 1978, he replaced most of the silver pieces with alloy coins.
