FREDDIE MERCURY: Wheels to Be Preserved
Freddie Mercury's Rolls to go on display.
Freddie Mercury's 1974 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, which was recently sold at auction for $116,000, will not be driven. The new owner, Ukrainian pop idol and silver winner of Eurovision 2007 Verka Serduchka, says, "I bought the car not to drive it, but to preserve it for fans of the Queen!" She will give the car to a museum being built in honor of the band, but before then, the Rolls will be on display at her shows in Moscow on March 9th and 10th. It is not known where the museum will be located.
