Elvis was afraid to fly.
Gladys had worried that he would die, like Buddy Holly, in a plane.
Elvis had a terrible experience on a plane in his early career.
Thus in the 1960s Elvis had a custom bus made to travel from Graceland in Memphis to Hollywood and vice versa.
The infamous bus was a favorite of the Memphis Mafia especially for Billy Smith.
Even Elvis and Priscilla spent time, and made great memories, in this bus.
Finally it has been restored and is now going to auction.
