    Cruising down the avenue, cars and rock and roll.
    This song is acclaimed to be the first rock and roll song by some and features Ike Turner, ex husband of Tina Turner.
    I might have seen them way back at the local teenage night club but I can't be sure due to the old adage, "If you can remember the sixties, you weren't there".
    Good song and good video.

    Rockabilly. This song by Charlie Ryan was based on a real car he once owned, so I read somewhere.
    Best version is by Commandeer Cody, but this is the original.

    Really like Mustang Sally...

    Here's the song that inspired Hot Rod Lincoln. It's swing country, but close enough to rockabilly, 1950.

    (too bad that Woodie Guthrie wrote my fav. car song, but I can't add it to this rock thread.)

    Weird as many of the car songs make me think of summer and just letting it rip. :)
