An item on one of our sister sites here at the High Gear Media global nerve center rags on a Detroit News piece yesterday that mixes up a Cadillac and a Lincoln.

We're more interested in the car itself. It's a decked-out 1967 Cadillac owned by rap star and sometime-Chrysler-spokesman Snoop Dogg.

Among other hip-hop-a-licious features, the Cad's got chandeliers in over the back seat. Love the idea of live candles swaying as Snoop croons while entertaining, uhhhhh, guests in the rear compartment.

A diamond in the back it ain't, but we hope the junk in the trunk includes a fire extinguisher.

If you want to see Brown Sugar herself, check out the new show of cars owned by rock stars at The Henry Ford in Detroit.
