The vinyl top might be partially-repaired (like the vinyl seats in other cars).

Some upholstery shops may be able to help. A Caddy Dealer or body shop might be much more expensive than what you have in mind.

I think the repair goes like this:

First, a vinyl hole is fixed by first supporting the underside ( mesh - for a seat-tear for example). Your'e roof should very easy, since it does not flex like a seat.

Next, the patch is carefully fit and not stretched too much.

Last, it is heat-melted at edge-seams with a small bead of liquid vinyl (plastic).

The problem will be an exact color-match, but the grain should be ok.

Good luck

Add power to leave problems behind. Most braking is just - poor planning.
