Rock Stars Cars – Pictures of Music Stars With Their Cool Cars Moneyed musicians and expensive cars go together like turntables and vinyl. Some, such as Pete Townshend of the Who, claim to have spent five years saving up for their dream machine — a Mercedes S 600 Pullman, in Townshend’s case... Moneyed musicians and expensive cars go together like turntables and vinyl. Some, such as Pete Townshend of the Who, claim to have spent five years saving up for their dream machine — a Mercedes S 600 Pullman, in Townshend’s case... 1. Freddie Mercury - Studebaker Champion Freddie gets first prize in the Rock Stars Cars' product placement competition as he makes himself comfortable on this 1950 Studebaker Champion. 2. George Harrison - Aston Martin DB5 George Harrison’s lust for speed began in childhood when he would doodle guitars and cars in class; he was able to slake his lifelong passion for driving with a variety of exotic wheels on the road and occasionally on the track. 3. Janis Joplin - Porsche 365 Janis Joplin’s Porsche 365 is on display in all its garish 60s glory, but you can’t blame poor Janis – her roadie, Dave Roberts, reportedly had the car painted “to resemble a pile of Jimi Hendrix’s vomit.” It was stolen a year after the paint job, painted grey, recovered, restored and is currently valued at $400,000. The car recently sold for $1.76 M at auction. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/n...rsche-brings-1-76-million-at-auction-20151211 4. Jeff Beck - Ford Deuce Coupe Jeff Beck is an avid collector of vehicles. His favorites are the classic Deuce Coupes and 1932 Ford Roadsters. He also has a 1932 three-window Ford coupe, which he copied from the car used in the classic movie called American Graffiti. He set out to create an exact replica after losing out in an auction to buy the original one. He still also has the 1963 split-window Corvette Stingray that he bought during the heydays of The Yardbirds. 5. Miles Davis - Lamborghini Miura Miles Davis rolled in a Lamborghini Miura and famously broke both his ankles while totaling it in 1972. You can’t keep a jazz legend down, though, and when Davis was released from the hospital after a lengthy stay, one of the first orders of business was to buy another Lambo. 6. Johnny Cash - Cadillac ('49 - '70) This Frankenstein's monster of a Cadillac was built to promote Johnny Cash's song "One Piece at a Time." The song's about an assembly-line worker who steals a Cadillac by taking one piece at a time home in his lunchbox. Nashville mechanic Bruce Fitzpatrick (far right) constructed the car from Cadillac parts, using the song as a manual. 8. Dave Clark - Jaguar E-Type The E-Type was the car of choice for 60s hit parade regulars The Dave Clark Five, or at least it was for Dave. 9. Elvis Presley - Cadillac Eldorado Seville He's just popped into town to get his hair cut at Jim's Barber Shop, Memphis, and a cop appears to write him out a ticket for his new white Cadillac. It's unknown whether he's tucking a bribe into the officer's pocket or just crossing his fingers.
