paint job for pennies

Cadillac covered with pennies
The $383.00 Paint Job . . .

1949 Cadillac, completely covered with 38,295 pennies! They were affixed one by one using Silicone. They added over 200 pounds to the vehicle’s weight. The entire project took 6 weeks. The pennies are American, and include an 1817 “Big Cent”, two Error Pennies, and four 1943 Steel pennies; (but who’s counting?). And, it won’t scratch.

Better still, this would make it nearly impervious to EMP disruption … particularly if the engine is all original with no electronics.
