Apparently only added 200 lbs. That's about $300 so it's a cheap exterior treatment, not counting the silicone and the time to do it.

 I hope he didn't use Silicone, 'cuz it'll rust/corrode real quick.

you mean the base metal will rust? What if it had a decent paint job to begin with?

Here's the blurb:

"This 49 Cadillac, completely covered with 38,295 pennies! The pennies were adhered one by one using Silicone, They added over 200 pounds to the weight, The entire project took 6 weeks. Pennies are American, and include 1817 ''big cent'', two error pennies and four 1943 steel pennies."

 It will eventually eat the paint, even if it's Epoxy. The copper will corrode and turn green and powdery.

For the most part, Silicone is an Acetic Acid.

 Hmmm.. I've use silicone many times to adhere trim pieces and some emblems to paint many times and never noticed an issue. I'll look into this. Thanks for the heads up.

 Dimes would have been cool too!A silvery look. But 10 times the cost.

 

I'd say loonies or toonies but they are really too big to follow the contours.

He could have stuck a few rows of nickles on there for some racing stripes.
