    I was never an Elvis Presley fan until I found out from this Forum that he owned a MKII. This month's Oxford American magazine has an insightful article revealing his personality written by one of his studio musicians titled "We Had it All", by Norbert Putnam. I like to think that all of the MKII owners past and present are just a bit special and notable because of our understanding of this unique, understated classic car.
    My father bought his first house in 1954 for $11,000...close to the price of a fully optioned MKII. He later traded his Packard for a new 1959 Lincoln. He could not afford a MKII as a young Navy officer, but put in me the bud of appreciation for the MKII which blossomed in my 50's.
    Comparing the price of the car (MKII) with housing costs (the two biggest expenditures for the avg. citizen) would place the MKII purchase at between $270K (median) and $340K (average) in 2013 dollars.....like a Bentley Continental GT or Mercedez Maybach.....see article http://money.cnn.com/magazines/fortu.../01/20/335627/
