    .

    Elvis saw this car accident in 1976, and stopped to help.

    He had one of his police badges with him, and thought he could do some good.

    Elvis being that great person he was, had to take a look to see if anything he could do to help out.

    What kind of remark is this? Elvis was an excellent driver. Many people have good experiences with his driving skills......

    #1 - I posted that pic asking if anyone knew the story behind it...thanks for clarifying.
    #2 - I'm sure he meant it's a wonder Elvis didn't crash by driving around on pills......which is a good point - just depends on how messed up he was while driving....(I'm speaking from personal experience with my husband)

    Yeah didn't his car burn up after the wheel barrings failed. I don't know if it was his pink caddy. It was in the mini series Good Rockin' Tonight.

    Don't know if it was real or not.

    One of his first cars caught on fire during the 50s. I think he was driving it a little before it happen. Their is a photo of the car afterwards in several books.

    His pink caddy did end its days in a fire but he bought and exact simalar just few days after so the one we know today is not the first originally but his second one.
