It's not the actual car referenced in the little chestnut "Freeway of Love
," but this Mary-Kay
pink 2008 Cadillac CTS
signed by Aretha Franklin is hitting the auction
block in Los Angeles today. The funds will benefit MusiCares, an organization set up by the Recording Academy (the Grammy people) to provide humanitarian support to musicians that need help. That doesn't mean getting a speech therapist for Ozzy, it's more like helping folks still trying to rebuild their lives after Hurricane Katrina. The event is part of the MusicCares 2008 Person of the Year tribute that will honor Aretha Franklin, and we'd much rather have a pink CTS
than a Cimmaron, which was the entry-level Caddy
during the song's day on the charts. We'd take it in black, and load R-E-S-P-E-C-T onto the audio system's hard drive immediately.
