    Rolling Stones - "Brand New Car"
    ZZ Top - "Manic Mechanic"
    ZZ Top - "Chevrolet"
    ZZ Top - "She Don't Love Me She Loves My Automobile"
    Deep Purple - "Highway Star"
    George Harrison - "Faster"
    Queen - "I'm In Love With My Car"
    Mr. Obvious - "Car Tips"

    This is kind of lame, but Manowar had a song called "Wheels of Fire" that just kicks ass!

    This is the best way to get a speeding ticket

    Pink Cadillac-Bruce or Aretha
    Low Rider-WAR
    Up on Hipple Creek-Nitty Gritty Dirt Band [img]tongue.gif[/img]
    Wheel in the Sky-Journey
    Magic Carpet Ride-Steppenwolf
    Convoy-CW McCall

    You have no idea how funny that is to me right now. I just back from a trip to East Texas and this little dive actually was playing this song over and over while every cowboy and cowgirl in the joint was singin' along. But if you want a ticket while driving, put on The Devil went down to Georgia. One can't help but open a beer, roll the window down, and just dare the DPS to pull you over. I'm speaking from experience here. Out.
