Elvis Presley spent a lot of money on himself by buying Cadillacs, but also gave a lot of Cadillacs, to band members, bodyguards, his doctor and complete strangers.
One of my favorite stories is when Elvis was watching a story, on the local NBC station in Denver Colorado, about him gaving away cars, and the anchorman Don Kinney mentioned, that if Elvis was watching he wanted a new car too. The next morning a blue Cadillac Seville was delivered to the station to Kenney.
He gave many cars to Charlie Hodge the band member, who handed Elvis scarves during the concerts,because he would give a car Hodge was driving to someone, and then buy him another one, since Hodge lived at Graceland until the day Elvis died.
Elvis gave Mary Jenkins his maid and cook six cars including three Cadillacs. He also gave his dentist and jeweler cars.
One car dealer honored him, by giving him a plaque for being the World’s Best Car Buyer, with the names of 31 people he had given cars to.
I think it is safe to say that no other entertainer was as generous as Elvis Presley. I don’t think any other entertainer bought 14 Cadillacs for $140,000, in one trip to an auto dealer like Elvis did two years before his death. $140,000 today might buy 3 or 4 Cadillacs.
