This is the first of 7 Corvorado Diamond Eagles built and was used in the James Bond Movie "Live and Let Die".
Lemme tell you, when I saw this on display at the AACA Museum in their Cultural icons exhibit, I laughed, laughed, and then I laughed some more.
I'll get the other Dunham Coach car that's on display up. They're still in business, catering to those with distinctive tastes.
Both cars are owned by a guy named Pepy Beniquez in New Jersey. Pepy, you are one flat out wild and pimpin' dude if you have these cars for your rides. You da Man, God Bless yah.
Dunham Coach is still operational in Boonton, has a website, and you can prolly still get those from them, you know.
He got a custom Continental
He got an Eldorado too
He got a .32 gun in his pocket for fun
He got a razor in his shoe
And it's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog
This ride just oozes 70's.
uh my name? Silky Smovve...thas right two 'V's
I'd like to meet the Pepe the owner- I have a feeling he's a real character, and he loves these cars.
What kills me is that Dunham Coach is still active.
Also, we had a car with some of the pieces on it in the area I grew up in, and the driver of it was a well-known town character, and from what I know, still is.
2 controls per side for Tank like an old Tank was steered. Gads that dates me, I forgot about that game.
I know it's something really off the wall and obscure.
As well as the pimpmobile. In a small town of 9ishk people in rural central PA, everyone knew Jack was on the road.
