2The legendary Hank Williams, Buck Owens and Roy Rogers all wore their Nudie suits to the grave.
3Made a custom-designed automobile for Elvis Presley, which was rejected by The King's entourage, who feared their flamboyant boss might order a whole fleet of "Nudiemobiles" for his "Memphis Mafia" sidekicks if he laid eyes on the car. Elvis already was proud owner of a gold-plated Cadillac. Both the Cadillac and one of Nudie's cars are in the Country & Western
4One of his custom-designed, Western-themed automobiles, a 1973 Pontiac Grand Ville, hangs above the bar at country singer Buck Owens's Crystal Palace entertainment complex in Bakersfield, California. Owens won it in a poker game with Nudie and later bought a '72 Grande Ville "Nudiemobile." Though Nudie gussied up Cadillacs, he preferred Pontiacs as they were among the longest cars in the world.
