Elvis Presley had a love of cars, Cadillacs in particular. Of course, the vehicle was already very popular in the ’50s and ’60s when Elvis was a big star. Elvis owning them only increased their popularity with fans. It has been said that Elvis owned over 200 Cadillacs in his lifetime and that his favorite color option was pink.

Elvis purchased his first Cadillac in 1955. It was the iconic pink color that Elvis loved. Unfortunately, it broke down just a few months after he bought it. So, he decided to buy another one. This time, it was blue, but Elvis still really loved the pink color. He had it painted a custom pink, which was dubbed “Elvis Rose.”
