    1962 Cadillac Fleetwood covered in coins - photos

    Making Change by artist Monica Mohoney.

    "This Fleetwood Cadillac limousine covered with thousands of nickels, dimes and pennies was built in 1962, the same year that the Walmart company was founded in Bentonville, Arkansas. The inspiration for the coin motif comes from the original Walton Five and Dime, still located on the Bentonville town square."

    I thought Walton started the stores in the early 70's. Taking the link below the last pic, it speaks about the cost of many items of that time. I remember 25 cent/gal at the full service gas stations.

    Thatís a way to add value to a car. Lol. With the price of gas now, youíd have to scrape off the coins to buy enough gas to go around the block. Thatís no joke!
