Hey, just curious to see what car songs you guys like, plus it'll help me out since I'm in charge of the music for a car show in my town next month. :)

Mustang Sally, My favorite version is from the Commitments Soundtrack; Highway Star, Deep Purple; Trans Am, Sammy Hagar, OK to segue this into Bad Motor Scooter technically a bike song but the car people dig it. You may as well throw in the anthem I Can't Drive 55 (or 65, depends on the decade); Baby's got a Brand New Cadillac and Drive Like Lightning, Crash Like Thunder, The Brian Setzer Orchestra; Pink Cadillac, Bruce Springsteen
You may be lynched if you don't have a bunch of Beach Boys and Jan and Dean, just pick by title.

Stay Cats; Hot Rod Gang, Built for Speed, Rev It Up and Go, Look at That Cadillac, 18 Miles from Memphis.
Brian Setzer; Switchblade 327.
George Thorogood; Ride on Josephine.
David Lindley; Mercury Blues... this version is particularly tasty, it can be found on 'Hot Rods & Custom Classics' from Rhino Records. Of course if you find this collection, your troubles are over.

Now, providing music for car shows should only be attempted by professional car show DJs. Not wedding DJs. Hire me and I will make your show rock. My usual fee + gas + lodging. :)

Would anyone happen to know of a place where I can download tracks from The Super Stocks? Limewire doesnt have anything... nor does Rhapsody.

Beach Boys "409" with one of the guys father's 352 FORD engine recorded in their driveway doubling for the Chevy.

Beach Boys "Fun, Fun, Fun" with the guitar opening riff stolen from Chuck Berry

And Robert Mitchum's "The Ballad of Thunder Road" for obvious reasons including, but not limited to, one of the best rockabilly guitar backups in a movie.
