TJ's 1959 Big Pink Car parked in front of her 1912 Little Pink House,
two dreamy and iconic American Beauties that escaped the wrecking ball.

Forever Pretty in Pink

Little pink houses and big pink cars, "for you and me" — the American Dream of another time and place, a kinder and gentler era, a retro slice of bygone Americana lingering just over the horizon. The shyest color and also the boldest, flirtatious and romantic, pink has soul. Pizzazz. The power, charm, mystique and allure of pink shall never fade, never vanish. Pink is the passion of the past and the promise of today, a quest for yesterday and a belief in tomorrow; a symbol of happiness and joy. Long live the poetry and mindset, the dream and drama, the thrill and romance of "being in the pink" and all things pink.


More tidbits about the real iconoclastic Big Pink Lady Lulabell, driven by TJ, can be found on TJ's Page. To know more about the intriguing character who drives the eponymous Caddy named Lulabell in TJ's forthcoming novel and film works series The Pearly Gates of Purgatory, go to The Pearly Gates of Purgatory Book Page — then scroll down to Read and See storyline synopsis pages.

Elvis Presley, Fats Domino, B.B. King, Jayne Mansfield, Andy Kaufman, Chuck Berry, Bobby Rydell, Hildegard, Sugar Ray, Mary Kay, Barbie and others have cruised the roads in a pink Caddy...a car with personality and pizzazz, magic, mystery, melodrama, mojo and more...

A tribute to an American classic,

the symbol of an era,

the car of dreams...



Natalie Cole — Pink Cadillac Lyrics

You may think I'm fooling

For the foolish things I do

You may wonder how come I love you

When you get on my nerves like you do

Well, baby, you know you bug me

There ain't no secret about that

Well come on over here and hug me

And, baby, I'll spill the facts

Well, honey, it ain't your money

Cause, baby, I got plenty of that

I love you for your pink Cadillac

Crushed velvet seats

Riding in the back, oozing down the street

Waving to the girls

Feeling out of sight

Spending all my money on a Saturday night

Honey, I just wonder what you do there in back of your pink Cadillac

Pink Cadillac

Well now way back in the Bible, temptations always come along

There's always somebody tempting you

Somebody into doing something they know is wrong

Well they tempt you, man, with silver and they

tempt you, sir, with gold

And they tempt you with the pleasures that the flesh does surely hold

They say Eve tempted Adam with an apple

Man I ain't going for that

I know it was her pink Cadillac

Crushed velvet seats

Riding in the back, oozing down the street

Waving to the girls

Feeling out of sight

Spending all my money on a Saturday night

Honey, I just wonder what you do there in back of your pink Cadillac

Now some folks say it's too big and uses too much gas

Some folks say it's too old and that it goes too fast

But my love is bigger than a Honda, it's bigger than a Subaru

Hey man there's only one thing and one car that will do

Anyway we don't have to drive it, honey, we can park it out in back

And have a party in your pink Cadillac



Aretha Franklin — Freeway of Love Lyrics

New you'd be a vision in white

How'd you get those pants so tight?

Don't know what you're doin'

But you must be livin' right

We got some places to see

I brought all the maps with me

So jump right in...Ain't no sin

Take a ride in my machine

City traffic movin' way too slow

Drop the pedal and go...go...go

Goin' ridin' on the freeway of love

Wind's against our back

Goin' ridin' on the freeway of love

In my pink Cadillac

Goin' ridin' on the freeway of love

Wind's against our back

Ain't we ridin' on the freeway of love

In my pink Cadillac?

Never you mind the exit signs

We got lots of time

We can't quit 'til we get

To the other side

With the radio playin' our song

We keep rollin' on

Who knows how far a car can get?

Before you think about slowin' on down

City traffic movin' way too slow

Drop the pedal and go...go...go



Nitty Gritty Dirt Band — Cadillac Ranch Lyrics

There she sits, buddy, just a-gleaming in the sun

There to greet a working man when his day is done

I'm gonna pack my pa and I'm gonna pack my aunt

I'm gonna take them down to the Cadillac Ranch.

El Dorado fins, whitewalls and skirts;

Rides just like a little bit of heaven here on earth.

When I die, buddy, throw my body in the back

Take me to the junkyard in my Cadillac

Cadillac, Cadillac

Long and dark, shiny and black (pink!)

Open up your engines let 'em roar

Tearing up the highway like a big old dinosaur

James Dean in a Mercury '49

Junior Johnson runnin' in the woods of Caroline

Even Burt Reynolds in a black Trans Am

Are gonna meet me down at the Cadillac Ranch

Cadillac, Cadillac

Long and dark, shiny and black (pink!)

Open up your engines, let 'em roar

Tearin' up the highway like a big old dinosaur

Hey, little girlie, in the blue jeans so tight

Drivin' all alone in a Colorado night

You're my last love, baby, you're my last chance

Don't let 'em take me down to the Cadillac Ranch

Cadillac, Cadillac...

Long and dark, shiny and black (pink!)

Open up them engines, let 'em roar;

Tearin' up the highway like a big old dinosaur



Bruce Springsteen Cadillac Ranch Lyrics

Well, there she sits, buddy, justa gleaming in the sun

There to greet a working man when his day is done

I'm gonna pack my pa and I'm gonna pack my aunt

I'm gonna take them down to the Cadillac Ranch

Eldorado fins, whitewalls and skirts

Rides just like a little bit of heaven here on earth

Well, buddy, when I die throw my body in the back

And drive me to the junkyard in my Cadillac

Cadillac, Cadillac

Long and dark, shiny and black (pink!)

Open up your engines let 'em roar

Tearing up the highway like a big old dinosaur

James Dean in that Mercury '49

Junior Johnson runnin' thru the woods of Caroline

Even Burt Reynolds in that black Trans-Am

All gonna meet down at the Cadillac Ranch

Cadillac, Cadillac

Long and dark, shiny and black (pink!)

Open up them engines let 'em roar

Tearing up the highway like a big old dinosaur

Hey, little girlie, in the blue jeans so tight

Drivin' alone through the Wisconsin night

You're my last love, baby, you're my last chance

Don't let 'em take me to the Cadillac Ranch

Cadillac, Cadillac

Long and dark, shiny and black (pink!)

Pulled up to my house today

Came and took my little girl away
