The $383 Paint Job
1949 Cadillac, completely covered with 38,295 pennies.
They were affixed one by one using Silicone. They added over 200 pounds to the vehicle’s weight. The entire project took 6 weeks. The pennies are American, and include an 1817 "Big Cent", two Error Pennies, and four 1943 Steel pennies (but who’s counting?).
And, it won’t scratch.
