The name’s Flyrod. American car culture is my thing. If it rolls, roars, or rumbles I’m into it. Statistics and facts aren’t my gig. My mission is to track down and capture the infamous rides that make up pop culture, and to tell their stories.

    POPE ELVIS

    They sure had some trouble in Vatican City
    Plagued by a scandal it was such a pity

    When Benedict hung up his red Prada shoes
    And all of those Cardinals were singin’ the blues

    A new voice would come to Earth from afar
    In the form of a fifty-five Cadillac car

    Under the hood beat the heart of a stallion
    And unlike so many, it wasn’t Italian

    It would not reign from the streets of Rome
    Graceland in Memphis would be its new home

    It channeled its word through a man named Elvis
    Who drew a big crowd by swinging his pelvis

    He spoke to the people through the songs he’d sing
    Millions adored him and called him the King

    But he was a just man, good looking and gallant
    Who spoke to the world with his special talent

    Inspiring words would roll off his lips
    And sins were forgiven by shaking his hips

    Those Cardinals couldn’t sing, so they had to go
    The Jordanaires backed him at every show

    He feed the poor with his special manna
    A sandwich of peanut butter and nana

    The crowds would sing and shout out chants
    As he shook his leg in white leather pants

    Lifting our spirits was his only goal
    He started the church of Rock-n-Roll

    Of this great event no profit foretold
    A long Fleetwood Special of white and gold

    Pope Elvis came here to lift up your soul
    That fifty-five Cadillac knew how to roll

    There’s no greater gift than music, I say
    So turn up the volume and brighten your day
