Sammy Hagar has "Trans Am" and, of course, "I can't drive 55". While it's not a car, UFO's "Can You Roll Her" mentions a Vincent Black Shadow. Neil Peart's inspiration for "The Red Barchetta" came from a short story entitled "A Nice Sunday Drive" in Road & Track, I believe. I have read the story, I just can't recall which magazine it ran in. I would mess my drawers, if I ever saw anyone doing Rush, for karaoke! Good job, by you!

I wouldn't try Sammy Hager, would trash my throat!  I've also done The Cars, Drive.  "When I drive you home..." counts, I hope.

Really??? We got this far into it with no mention of a "hotrod Lincoln" by Comander Cody also mentions a Cadillac.

And this one. Great version of the 1965 Devons song - used to see Elliot Kendall at the PCC flea market and bought a couple of his CDs; real nice guy.

Continuing with the Caddy theme..."Gonna ride to your funeral, Daddy, in a black Cadillac."  Joyce Green was only 19 yrs old when she cut this awesome piece of rockabilly in 1959. It was her only hit and virtually her only record. She seems to have been influenced by an earlier car song, "Going to Your Funeral in a V-8 Ford." Written by blues singer Buddy Moss and recorded by many artists.
