Pink Cadillac Day
This day is dedicated to pink Cadillacs, which have an iconic place in American culture, most notably because of Elvis Presley. Elvis mentioned a pink Cadillac in his first charting single, “Baby Let’s Play House”, which was released in April 1955, and bought his first pink Cadillac around the same time. It was a 1954 Fleetwood Series 60, and it was destroyed in a roadside fire in June of the same year. His second Cadillac was a 1955 Fleetwood Series 60, which was originally blue with a black roof. He had a neighbor paint it pink for him, and gave it to his mother Gladys as a gift. As Gladys didn’t have a driver’s licence, Elvis still did most of the driving of it. Eventually Elvis had the top changed from black to white too. Elvis also bought himself a white with pink roofed 1961 Cadillac Coupe de Ville upon returning home from his service in Germany, and let his friend and soon-to-be tour manager, Joe Esposito, borrow the 1955 car. The 1955 is his most famous Cadillac, and it now is on display in Graceland.
