    Couldn't have said it better. I lived that era and I can tell you that no one listened to that swill. No one. It's like listening to MX 50's station. The play a lot of songs that no one ever listened to or even heard of back then.
    If you want to hear real cruisin music, get a sound track of American Graffiti. Now that's cruzen music. When I watch the movie and see those cars cruisin to that music, I almost cry it's so beautiful.

    An "answer song" to Whittier Blvd. This would sound great blasting out of a tube powered radio with a reverb unit in the back.

    "Trampled Under Foot"

    Greasy slicked down body, groovy leather trim
    I like the way you hold the road, mama, it ain't no sin

    Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

    Trouble-free transmission, helps your oil's flow
    Mama, let me pump your gas, mama, let me do it all

    Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

    Dig that heavy metal underneath your hood
    Baby, I could work all night, believe I've got the perfect tools

    Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

    A model built for comfort, really built with style
    Specialist tradition, mama, let me feast my eyes

    Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

    Factory air-conditioned, heat begins to rise
    Guaranteed to run for hours, mama it's a perfect size

    Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

    Groovin' on the freeway, gauge is on the red
    Gun down on my gasoline, I believe I'm gonna crack a head.

    Talkin' 'bout love [X3]
    I can't stop talkin' about...

    Come to me for service every hundred miles
    Baby, let me check your points, fix your overdrive

    Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

    Fully automatic, comes in any size
    Makes me wonder what I did, before we synchronized

    Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

    Feather-light suspension, Koni's couldn't hold
    I'm so glad I took a look inside your showroom doors

    Talkin' 'bout love [X3]

    Oh, I can't stop talkin' about love.

    Great stuff, everyone. I've picked up a few more for my playlist that I hadn't heard before. "15 Days Under The Hood" by the Paladins is a killer piece.

    Nearly impossible to narrow it down to 5, but I'll throw these out there.
    1) Can't believe nobody's mentioned Sammy Hagar and "Can't Drive 55"!?
    2) Dick Dale and Stevie Ray Vaughan's duet version of "Pipeline".
    3) "Lowrider" by War
    4) "You Can't Catch Me" by Chuck Berry
    5) "Hard Times Down the Road" by The Earl Brothers

    And yes, music in the garage is about as traditional as it gets!!

  18. "Hot Wired" by the Road Kings.

    I'm too techno illiterate to post a link to it, but if someone can help a brother out...

  29. I can't stand working with a radio on.

    I prefer the buzz of the welder and sounds of work.
