Elvis Presley Car Museum Celebrates 25th Anniversary

June 12, 2014

Home to over 20 cars owned by the king, the Elvis Presley Automobile Museum first opened its doors on June 12, 1989. In celebration of the 25th anniversary, Elvis fans can check out some rare photos of the opening day. Want to see the king's cars in person? Plan the ultimate rock 'n' roll pilgrimage to Elvis Presley's Graceland!  

Elvis loved cars and the Elvis Presley Automobile Museum displays some of his favorites. Millions of Elvis fans have traveled to Graceland and shared photos of what is now one of the most legendary car museums in the world. Originally, the decorative car (never owned by Elvis) on display outside of the museum was pink. After a flood of concerned letters from Elvis fans who thought it was Elvis' pink Cadillac, the staff at Graceland decided to paint the car the now iconic blue you see while visiting the king's home.

Highlights of this most impressive Elvis Presley museum include his famous Pink Cadillac, Harley-Davidson motorcycles, a Stutz Blackhawk, a 1975 Dino Ferrari, a 1956 Cadillac Eldorado convertible, the red MG from "Blue Hawaii" and more. Also, see some of Elvis’ favorite motorized toys, including a go-cart, dune buggy, motorized three-wheelers and a pedal car.
