• Elvis Presley bus sells for $268,000


    NEW YORK: A custom-designed tour bus bought by Rock ‘n’ Roll King Elvis Presley for his back-up band in 1976 sold at auction in New York Saturday for $268,000, organizers said. Elvis’s “Takin’ Care of Business” and lightning bolt motto is emblazoned on the bodywork, although its soft furnishings have since been refitted in dusty peach since its days on road in the 1970s. Fully road worthy, it seats 12, has nine sleeping berths and comes equipped with air conditioning, a fridge, a microwave, televisions and speakers. There are even chandelier-style lights hanging from the lounge area. It was bought by a mobile homes specialist in Texas, the CEO of the California-based auction house Julien’s Auctions, Darren Julien, said.
