My favorite line from Funny Face is where after telling the fashion magazine staff that pink is the color of the year, and everyone on staff switching to it, someone asks her if she's going to wear pink and she says something along the line of "I wouldn't be caught dead!"

There is also Bruce Springsteen's song "Pink Cadillac".

Okay, but how about "pink slip" meaning an ownership document for a car?

WizardofDocs: The automotive sense of "pink slip" originated in California, where title certificates were printed on pink paper "to keep car owners from accidentally throwing out this vital piece of paper with other trash like an outdated vehicle registration notice." The practice was discontinued in 1988, but by then the slang term had migrated to other states. Source: Car and Driver. https://www.caranddriver.com/research/a31863468/pink-slip-car/
