Lovett recalls, "We were backstage and we found out our next show was in Salt Lake City and he said, 'Well, you'll need a pace car for that. You ought to buy my Cadillac.'
"I figured if Hunter S Thompson offers to sell you his car, the only thing you can do is ask him how much.
"He said, 'Two thousand dollars,' and I paid him right there. There was a case of beer in the trunk and he threw that in too."
