TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) - A limousine once owned by Elvis Presley will briefly be on display next year at the Texarkana Municipal Auditorium, where Presley and other music legends performed.

The Tex-Ark Antique Auto Museum and the Arkansas Municipal Auditorium Commission have teamed up to bring the 1955 Cadillac limousine to Texarkana.

The limo will be on display at the auditorium on September 5th next year. The vehicle will be on display at the auto museum the following two days.

The event goes along with commission plans to continue restoration of the auditorium, officials said Thursday.

When the display was announced yesterday, organizers played an old 45-rpm promotional record by Elvis from the 1950s, in which he invited fans to his show at the Texarkana auditorium.
