THE GREEN CARS


2003 Toyota Prius
(her first one)

I’m very concerned about the environment. And because I was one of the first people to complain about the war with Iraq, I thought the smallest and least thing I could do was drive a hybrid and keep my environmental karma clean. Besides which, I’m not noticed very much in that car. One of the reasons I don’t go out in the Corvette much any more is that I get seen more easily, which can be a pain.-Sheryl Crow

AUGUST 2011

BREMEN — Singer Sheryl Crow recently paid a surprise visit to Special Edition, Inc. in Bremen.

“Her manager called about a month ahead of time but wouldn’t say who was coming,” said Carey Hines, vice president of Special Edition, Inc.

The star stopped by Special Edition the day of her performance at the Morris Performing Arts Center in South Bend, Aug. 17.

Turns out that the singer is in the market for a new car after auctioning off her 1959 Mercedes 190SL Roaster to benefit Joplin, Mo. tornado victims. The car sold for $130,000, according to Hines, and the money was donated to the Joplin school district.

Hines said that Crow is a classic car fan, but doesn’t want the headache that comes with maintaining an older vehicle.

“She wanted something that looked old but wasn’t,” said Hines, adding that Special Edition carries mid-1950s style cars that are brand new and reliable.

Crow chose a black Beck Speedster with a tan interior, which will be custom-made for her. Hines said that Crow asked for a very basic, stripped down car, bypassing many modern amenities that other customers ask for.

“She wanted a true 1950s feel,” said Hines.

Crow had her manager research the car she wanted beforehand, and Hines said that the manager asked most of the mechanical questions while Crow stood by.

“She was one of the nicest people I’ve ever met,” remembers Hines. “Real down to earth, sweet, and a vintage car lover.”

“We pretty much talked about cars,” said Hines. “We’ve built a lot of cars for celebrities over the years but this is the first time we’ve had one visit the shop. I was more nervous than I thought I’d be. Everything I knew about the cars kind of flew out the window.”

Other celebrities that the company has built cars for include Slash, lead guitarist of Guns N’ Roses, Gordon Murray, designer of Formula One race cars, and Jay Leno.

Although completed cars are usually shipped, Hines said that Crow’s car will most likely be brought directly to her Franklin,Tenn. home by Special Edition staff.

Special Edition, Inc. is located at 119 N. Liberty Drive in Bremen.

THE WAGON

A third generation Subaru Outback 3.0R

Basically a Subaru Legacy wagon. With the debut of the third-generation Legacy at the 60th Frankfurt Auto Show (2003), the Outback name was now being used in all markets with the launch of the third-generation Outback wagon, which until that point had only been used in export markets.

SHERYL'S FIRST NEW CAR

BMW X5 (E53)

For the most part of her life Sheryl has owned second-hand vehicles. Her first new car was a BMW X5, a Sport Utility Vehicle she bought in the early 2000's to carry her three dogs (see below).

THE TEUTONIC ROADSTER

[ CLICK TO ENLARGE ]

1959 Mercedes SL 190 Roadster

1959 model. 120 bhp (SAE), 1,897 cc SOHC inline four-cylinder engine with dual Solex carburetors, four-speed manual transmission. Restored by Colvin Automotive in 2005 with new brakes, suspension, a reconditioned Becker Mexico radio with speaker and a fresh interior of black leather upholstery.

Auctioned by Gooding & Co in 2011 to benefit Joplin, Missouri tornado victims. For those that don't remember (or weren't aware) Joplin was largely destroyed by a massive tornado. The damage was incredible, essentially leveling the town's business district. The car was sold for $130,000.
