Even a 1959 Olds in the video.

Love the 455 emblem on it even though the 455 didn't come out until 9 years later.

Mr. Smith had an Oldsmobile
Baby blue with them wire wheels
I took her home the day that she was advertised
He said she leaked when, it would rain
And sounded like an aeroplane
But I knew she was a jewel in disguise
She had a 455 Rocket
The biggest block alive
I couldn't hardly wait just to take my turn
She was made for the straight a ways
She grew up hating Chevrolets
She's a Rocket, she was made to burn
Whose junkpile piece of Chevelle is this?
You boys come here to race or just kiss?
Don't you wanna know what I got underneath my hood?
I know she might sound like she's missing
But buddy, she could teach you a lesson
In just a quarter mile, and I'll smoke you good
In my 455 Rocket
The kind the police drive
I couldn't hardly wait just to take my turn
She was made for the straight a ways
She grew up hating Chevrolets
She's a Rocket, she was made to burn
I'm telling you and I ain't ashamed
I cried when that wrecker came
As we skid I thought I heard the angels sing (sounded like the Beach Boys)
We hit the curve and began to sail
Took out most of the safety rail
Even the cop asked me
"Man, what'd you have in that thing?"
I had a 455 Rocket
The very kind you drive
You oughta watch yourself when you take that turn
'Cause she was made for the straight a ways
She grew up hating Chevrolets
She's a Rocket, she was made to burn
Lord, she's a Rocket she was made to burn

Good point but the 455 came out in 1970 Wink

Reminds me of this song
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvA7Dlmr3bY

Don't forget Cadillac Ranch by the Nitty Gritty Dirt band
or Racing in the Streets by Springsteen

I GOT A 69 CHEVY WITH A 396
FUELLIE HEADS WITH A HURST ON THE FLOOR

Oh yeah

Vernon Green and the Medallions 1956 (Yes, 1956!) "Buick '59"

And also "Better Buick Boogie" I think it's by the starlight rhythm band or boys or something

I'll think of some other good ones

Of course there's hot rod race 1-5 by Arkie Shibley and then Hot Rod Lincoln I think Johnny bond might have done it first I don't know. Johnny Bond actually has an entire album (maybe 1965?) of hot rod and racing songs.

Fairlane Rock by Hayden something from late 50s

Something else by Eddie Cochrane. That was my favorite song in high school. "My car's out front and baby it's all mine, just a '41 Ford not a '59, I got that girl and Ima thinking to my self, wow that girls fine looking man wow she's something else"

Uh Robert...Oldsmobile's 455 did come out in 1968. Wink

I'll have to find "Better Buick Boogie."

"Heaven in a Pontiac" by the late Bill Perry and "Mighty Big Car" by Fred Eaglesmith are two more great ones.

I did not know that!

Fred Eaglesmith is the shit. "I like to drive at 105" and "it's got a bench seat baby, you don't have to sit over there" are bad ass too. And "I got 7 shells in my 6 gun"

Did I mention "It's a Pontiac" by Fred Eaglesmith? I asked him about that song last time he played at my work. He said it wasn't about his car but a friend of his. He said it was a '63 Strato Chief 4 door. He said they used to cruise it all the time and you could take the key out and it would stay running. He said one night they got drunk and pulled the key out and couldn't find it. They passed out and woke up in the morning to the Pontiac still idling in the driveway hahahahahaha

He used to have his Fred Eaglesmith weekend deal every year at my work but he didn't do it last year and I haven't heard anything about it this year. I'll let you know if he's coming
