Copper Penny Cadillac

We've seen some wild cars but this one is thought provoking. This 1949 Cadillac is completely covered with 38,295 pennies.  Pennies were adhered one by one using silicone glue. They added over 200 pounds to the overall vehicle weight and the project took 6 weeks. The car is named "Penny" of course. All the pennies are American currency and include an 1817 ''Big Cent'', Two Error Pennies And Four 1943 Steel Pennies. Thats a total of $382.95 of pennies instead of paint. Sounds like a deal.
