Got a Johnny Cash quote tattooed on your arm? And all his records? On vinyl and remastered CD release? Prepare to become seriously tempted to dip into those life savings you wish you had.

Most of us might get a pat on the back or a congratulatory cup of tea for doing a good job at work. Not Cash. When The Johnny Cash Show brought in good ratings, the ABC network bought its star this - a custom Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow with an aluminium V8, independent front and rear suspension and four-wheel disc brakes (all fancy for a car in the '70s). They even had his initials engraved in gold on the rear doors.

On 25 September, this fine black dream machine is set to be wheeled onto the auction block of Las Vegas' Barrett Jackson. Should you fail to pick up Cash's rolls, don't worry - Elvis' Cadillac Coupe de Ville and Chevrolet Corvette Split Window Coupe will also be up for grabs.
