The late great, Johnny Cash has always been considered as one of the greatest storytelling musicians of all time. Through multiple documentaries and films like Walk, the Line, people were able to get a good understanding of who the man Johnny Cash was himself.

One of the great storytelling songs of his career was a song called "One Piece at a Time" where in the song, Johnny moves to Detroit, Michigan to work for GM on the assembly line and decides that he’s going to steal a car but do it over many years, one piece at a time.

The problem with his plan is that over the years, the models would evolve and when he finally has all the parts, the car looks all sorts of goofy. In the song, he claims that what he calls the PsychoBilly Cadillac is a  49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61,62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67,68, 69,70 automobile.

There’s even a live performance of this song that I’ve included below, that shows a video of this vehicle intended for the music video but was an actual working vehicle. But from what I can tell it was a completely drivable car. So whatever happened to Detroit-made vehicle?

What Happened To Johnny Cash's One Piece At A Time Cadillac?

It's actually within driving distance from Kalamazoo, as it's currently on display at the Historic Auto Attractions Museum in Roscoe, Illinois. To see this car in person is a true piece of American music history, and makes you appreciate the song even more.
