In early March 1955 Elvis had bought his first Cadillac. It was a pink and white 1954 Cadillac Fleetwood Series 60 Special Sedan (similar to the black one pictured) and provided transportation for Elvis and the Blue Moon Boys for about three months. The car went up in smoke when a brake lining caught fire, near Fulton on the road between Hope and Texarkana, Ark. on 5th June 1955. See picture here.
Rockabilly group Hamburger James were inspired to write a song about this event, see and hear on youtube.
