Youre asking us for help to find a needle in a haystack.  Youll need to be more specific (photo, VIN, license tag, last known address of the owner - your uncle - how long he lived there, what was his occupation, etc.).  Cadillac made 8,640 convertibles in 1958, of which 815 Eldorado models (no La Salles - last one was made in 1940).

[[ P.S. Tu peux mecrire en francais si cest plus facile pour toi ]]

Je disais donc, tu voudrais quon taide a trouver une aiguille dans une meule de foin. Il nous faudrait plus de precisions (par ex. photos de lauto, numero du chassis/moteur, immatriculation, derniere adresse connue de ton oncle, combien de temps a-t-il vecu a cette adresse, quelle etait sa profession, etc.). En 1958, Cadillac a fabrique 8,640 cabriolets, dont 815 modeles Eldorado (aucune LaSalle - la derniere est sortie de lusine en 1940).

In any case, Cadillac did produce a "pink" colour. It was called Mountain Laurel, and became famous/infamous as Mary Kay Pink. It is the only color I know of to exist and be (more or less) regularly available long after the original cars were produced. (One just has to sell all the lipstick and mascara in the world to your neighbors and Mary Kay will give you a pink Cadillac.) Mary Kay (I believe) has the color "locked up" and a normal person off the street cant get a Cadillac painted that colour. Cars do appear as used ones from time to time.
