Elvis was driving an Ed Roth trike, and Ed made tops with his trikes, http://www.aeclassic.com/73rothtrike/ (to read about them). Well, back to the story... so you can bet that most of those tops never saw the road, and one was located in a backyard by Spider the pinstriper, and as you can see below, he pinstriped it, and brought it to a show and Gene is photographed sitting it it.
Thanks to Spider for the story, and let this be a lesson. Learn what you can from everyone you can, a lot of people have great story!
