    Here is a Paint Job that Cost a Pretty Penny!

    Sent to me by a Friend of mine:

    The $383.00 Paint Job

    And it won’t scratch.

    49 Cadillac, completely Covered with 38,295 pennies! Pennies were adhered one by one using silicone, they added over 200 pounds to the weight, the entire project took 6 weeks, pennies are American, and include 1817 ''Big Cent'', two error pennies and four 1943 steel pennies.

    (Notice the sign on the hood)

    I have a transport company and move cars for a living. I need to make sure i pass weight and legth. You would be surprised that those old cars don't weight much more than modern cars. The difference is that the old cars had a lot of empty space. New cars can seem smaller but there is an abundance of electronics and reinforcement. of course we are talking about the same class of cars. You can't compare a 70 Cadillac to a 2010 Corolla. However, a 70 Caddy is only about a 100 lbs heavier than the 2011 Crown Victoria

    Actually a 70 Caddy sedan Deville weighs 4725 lbs. and 2011 Crown Victoria weighs in at 4129 lbs. for a difference of 596 lbs!
