Dean Martin & His Stutz Blackhawk

I really dig this picture of Dean Martin and his Stutz Blackhawk. Check out this link to see more pictures of him with his car. Man, I wish my parents had been the one to buy this car from him back in the mid-70's. Now that would be so cool to drive a car that was once owned and driven by Dean Martin himself.

I have greatly enjoyed grazing around your site. Dino and his pals have always been a bright spot in my life since I was a child. I am of Italian heritage and hearing songs like "An Evening in Roma" by the king of cool always brings back great memories and puts me in a happy place.

Your site is like a martini glass shaped swimming pool in the blogosphere, and I plan on taking regular dips.

Hey pallie DMP. I know what you mean. I agree with you. Both Dino and the car are classics.

The King Of Cool said...

Hey pallie Terri. Your welcome. I love them too. It's always cool to see what sort of ride Dino would drive. This car is one of my favorites. I would love to have the one Dino drove.

Hello Gilligan. Thanks so much for the wonderful comments. I appreciate them. It was great to hear from you. I quite enjoyed what you had to say.

I am of Italian heritage myself. I grew up listening to Dean Martin, etc. music at my grandmother's house. Listening to his songs today bring back such good memories.

I definitely hope you will continue to visit my blog. I appreciate your kind words. Please feel free to leave any comments you like. Thanks again.

Well, I'm impressed and I don't even like cars. Looks one really cool automobile.

The King Of Cool said...

Hey Steve. Thanks. I don't know a lot about cars. This definitely looks like one cool ride for Dino.

Cool picture. A Stutz was one of Elvis' favorite cars.

The King Of Cool said...

Hey Mike. I didn't know that about Elvis. It is a cool car.

Killer photo and what a car! Like Mike said...Elvis had one and it is on diosplay at the car museum across from Graceland.

The King Of Cool said...

Hey Jeremy. I love this car. It's cool to see a pic of Dino with such an awesome ride. I love the pictures of Elvis' car.

I've never heard of a Stutz before! Who made it?
It's better than the station wagon we had with the simulated wood panels:)

Hey Sue. I think it was the Stutz Motor Co. itself. Many celebs had them at the time besides Dino. Elvis, Sammy, Frank, Wayne Newton, Jerry Lewis, etc. all had them.
