Antique Autos Part 2: Mrs. White's Parakeet

Last week we showed you some Herbie cars from the film Herbie Rides Again, on display at the Antique Auto Club of America Museum in Hershey, PA. Today we want to take a look another special car which is part of the museum's collection. What you're looking at here is a 1977 Cadillac Seville once owned by television superstar Mrs. Betty White. This car was a gift from her husband Allen Ludden, and was custom painted in her favorite color Sea-Mist Green. Betty had lovingly nicknamed the car "Parakeet" before donating it to the Human Society in 2002 for a charity auction. From the auction, it lived with a private owner until it found it's way to the AACA Museum in 2009. Along with the car, the museum also has on display several items commemorating Betty White's awesome career in showbiz.
The car was also used in a two-part episode of Mama's Family. Impressed?

Betty White's Cadillac is a permanent exhibit at the Antique Auto Museum.
