?- what is your favorite automotive related song lyric

not song but lyric. me, i'm going with 'jesus built my hotrod'- ministry. if you need help/ inspiration try 'the reverend horton heat'. galaxy 500 is a good place to start.

Not sure, but the first one that came to my mind was Sir Mix-A-Lot's "My Hooptie".

must withdraw my opening comment. #1 " i've got a thunderbird parked right outside" - robert palmer . bonnie raits version of that song  'your gonna get whats coming' dosen't suck either

One is too slow and the other too fast.

So no matter which car I choose  ”I can’t drive 55” (Sammy Hagar)

Pit Crew

I've always liked Don Felder's Heavy Metal (from the movie of the same name):

 

Drive it on up and let's cruise a while
Leave your troubles far behind
You can hedge your bet on a clean Corvette
To get you there right on time
Now if you're ready to dive into overdrive
Baby, the green lights are on
It's like you're running your brain on some high octane
Every time she reaches fully blown

[Chorus]
Won't you take that ride on heavy metal?
It's the only way that you can travel down that road
Satisfied on heavy metal
Baby won't you ride, ride it until it explodes

Heavy metal

[Verse 2]
My oh my, how this lady can fly
Once she starts rollin' beneath you
You know you just can't lose, the way she moves
You wait for her to finally release you
It's not a big surprise to feel your temperature rise
You've got a touch of redline fever
'Cause there is just one cure that we know for sure
You just become a heavy metal believer

Highway Star-Deep Purple (Ritchie and John Lord tore that song up when it was Time to burn). 

 

And since Captain Oblivious (at least that's my wife's nickname for me) didn't properly read the OP:

 

Nobody gonnna take my car 

Gonna race it to the ground

Nobody gonna beat my car 

It's gonna break the speed of sound

 

Yep. Used to have that cued up on the old Alpine cassette deck right before the burnout to heat the M&H Race masters.

again lyric not song. may be included in song - pick your choice from any in ' little deuce coupe' 4 eg. or i'm thinking- ' i took out my revenge on the revolution counter'  you can't ever go wrong with gram parsons but i like dave edmunds cover better to tell you the truth.
