Create your own movable paper tube car inspired by the unique vehicles on view in the galleries. For ideas, examine Webb Pierce’s 1962 Pontiac Bonneville convertible, customized by Nudie Cohn with steer horns and over 150 silver dollars, and Elvis Presley’s “Solid Gold” Cadillac, which shimmers from forty coats of paint made of crushed diamonds and fish scales. How will you express your personality in your car design? All ages. Taylor Swift Education Center.
