If you want to learn how Elliot began the tradition of getting married in a Rolls Royce limousine (and much more), tune in and ride along.
11:40 - I am actually a pioneer in the West Village. I had the first big deal in real estate. I had a company called "Cooper Rolls Royce Limousine Service" offering the service of getting married in a Rolls Royce in New York; that was me, I created that in the United States.
15:20 - I had one of my cars stolen in front of Studio 54. We found it two blocks away, on 52nd Street between Broadway and 8th Avenue, in the middle of the street. Luckily, the thief had no idea how to drive it.
36:32 - In the 50's, that's where we were at, that was our mentality. We looked at things black and white back then, we wanted strength, we wanted power. The design of cars were sculptures. Today's car designs are dry, there is no romanticism.
