East or West bound and down Jerry Reed.

The others worth mentioning Strokers theme Charlie Daniels. 

Rev on the Red Line Foreigner.

 

Trans Am Sammy Hagar.

 

While Like a Rock is not about a Truck one can only think Chevy Trucks when it plays. Night moves has a 60 Chevy and also is a Seger winner Bob is so gifted with lyrics. 

Finally a car I got to sit in as a kid. Spirit Of America by The Beach Boys. 

Oh I had to edit this in and I am ashamed I forgot it 

Red Barchetta. By Rush. They classiest car song ever.

Hot rod Lincoln. 1

 

"When I started to gain on that Cadillac
Knew I could catch him, I thought I could pass
Don't you know by then we'd be low on gas?"

 

Radar love. 2

 

"And it's a half past four and I'm shiftin' gear"
"No more speed, I'm almost there
Gotta keep cool now, gotta take care
Last car to pass, here I go"

 

Last kiss. 3

 

"I'll never forget the sound that night
The screamin' tires, the bustin' glass
The painful scream that I heard last."

I finally re-read it and edited. Captain Oblivious strikes again!!!!!

Great song for those of us who went through it, and good story from Sammy on how he came to write it.
Instructor

Great choices. Speaking of Golden Earring (and to keep it car-related) also on that album is "Candy's goin' bad". If you have a ride with a good sound system, you will get a speeding ticket.

1.Radar Love...pick any lyric.

 

2. "Well the Ferrari couldn't catch her, no, no, the Maserati couldn't take her, the Lotus couldn't shake her, she's a GT Ford.   Jackie & the Giants-Ford GT

 

3. "Movin' fast, doin' ninety five, I hit top speed but I'm still movin' much too slow...
I feel so good, I'm so alive, I hear my song playin' on the radio.   Kiss-Detroit Rock City.

I'll go with the opening lines of the Trooper song "The Boys in the Bright White Sports Car"

"Here they come,

The boys in the bright white sports car.

Wavin' their arms in the air,

Who do they think they are?

And where did they get that car?"
