Elvis's Hair Helps Sell Classic Muscle Cars

Elvis's Hair Helps Sell Classic Muscle Cars

For Immediate Release

WAUCONDA, Ill./EWORLDWIRE/March 23, 2005 --- Northern Illinois Classic Auto Brokers, Ltd. and Classicmusclecars.com announced today that their rock and roll memorabilia collection has acquired Elvis Presley's authentic hair. Presley's hair and other memorabilia can be viewed online at classicmusclecars.com, along with the documentation of providence on video. Presley's hair will join other memorabilia including, a rare 36 diamond TCB ring, a leather jacket worn by Presley around Graceland, a guitar given to John Wayne signed by Presley for a birthday present and many records, pictures and other miscellaneous collectibles at Classicmusclecars.com's showroom.  

"Elvis was not only a rock and roller, he was a car guy too. He loved beautiful cars and loved to buy them. He also gave away many of the cars that he owned, which showed great generosity and kindness from a once poor southern boy who became the most famous entertainer of our time. His slogan TCB, which means taking care of business in a flash, has been inspirational to many people including myself. The TCB ring that we have in our collection has profound meaning as our company was started on a shoe string in 1978 and has become one of the major classic muscle car dealers in the country. No matter how hard of an uphill battle I had to climb everyday, I always remembered TCB. Although people may feel a little uncomfortable with the fact that we have acquired some of Elvis's real hair, I feel it brings him even closer to help us with the success of selling classic muscle cars. It brings out that good feeling to people when they buy classic muscle cars just like the good feeling they get when they listen to Elvis's music. He is still with us everyday at our showrooms at classicmusclecars.com," said Tony Begley, owner and founder of Northern Illinois Classic Auto Brokers and Classicmusclecars.com.
