What did Elvis Presley and Evel Knievel, two cultural icons of the 1970s, have in common? Well, a few things. One was that besides being at the top of their respective professions, they were showmen.
Both Elvis and Evel understood that whether singing in Las Vegas or jumping motorcycles over cars, part of their performance was entertaining their fan bases with top-level showmanship. Both Elvis and Evel admired and emulated another top performer of his time, Liberace.
Liberace was well known for his exotic-looking, sparkling-studded jumpsuits and capes while he played classical music on his rhinestone piano.
So in top extravagant showman style, Elvis and Evel would follow with their own wild clothes to capture the attention and imagination of their fans.
There was another commonality of the two American icons, and that was their desire for and the ownership of the Stutz Blackhawk.
