Pink Cadillac

The sign on it’s dash said it was a 1959 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible in the class unrestored original survivor.  It stopped me right in my tracks and detoured me from my thirsty quest to get a lemonade; it’s siren call was powerful and had to be answered.  I had to do some research on this classic to find out it’s length and as you can see – it is long!  It’s around 18 to 19 feet long plus or minus a few inches and was made during the time of those iconic huge tail fins and double bullet tail lights.

According to Wikipedia  “The convertible model had power windows and a two-way power seat. Technical highlights were finned rear drums and an X-frame construction. Interiors were done in Fawn, Blue or Gray Cortina Cord or Turquoise, Green, Persian Sand, or Black Caspian cloth with Florentine vinyl bolsters. Convertibles were upholstered in Florentine leather single or two-tone combinations or monochromatic Cardiff leather combinations.”  This baby was upholstered in pink and white leather – of course.

I was joking around with some other admirers that you could probably put one of today’s smart cars in the trunk to use as a spare if one were to have car problems.  This vehicle is so Americana it calls for some Bruce Springsteen….Pink Cadillac
