It's Not a Cadillac, But It's Pink!

Wow!  I want one!  This isn't a Cadillac though.  It's a Chrysler Imperial from 1955.  19 feet long, this baby probably got about 5 miles per gallon, but honey you sure looked like something driving it!

Bruce Springsteen came out with the song "Pink Cadillac" in 1984 as the B-side to "Dancing in the Dark".  And Natalie Cole's version in 1988 was a Top Ten song.  But for my money, the best song ever to include a pink Cadillac in the lyrics is Aretha Franklin's "Freeway of Love" from 1985.  No one rocks a song like Aretha.  I just wish this video was in color.  I dare you to sit still while you watch this.  "Drop the top baby, Let's cruise on into it." Enjoy!

Very cool video! Although, I favorite Bruce Springsteen's 'Pink Cadillac'

For an even cooler looking fifties Imperial, find one of the 1957-59 ones. Huge tailfins and space-age shape.
