    I was just thinking about all the car songs of the 50's and 60's, and the ones that mention a specific car or engine by size or name, like hemi or flathead, etc.
    Right off the bat I got "Little Deuce Coup" with a flathead mill will walk a Thunderbird, "409" Shut down with a "Fuel injected Stingray and a 413. "Rocket 88" "Beep Beep" with Nash Rambler and Cadillac. "Dead mans curve" with a Stingray and a Jag. I cannot ever remember a small block Chev mentioned in a song, 265, 283, 327, or 350. This is funny considering it is the most swapped hotrod engine of all times. The closest I can come up with is "fuel injected Stingray" to mention a small block Chev engine. Post up what you can add to the list.

    I always liked "Hey Little Cobra" by the Rip Chords. No engines mentioned but you get a Cobra, Cadillac, Stingray, and XKE mentioned by name.

    "Jump like a Willys in four wheel drive"

    from the song Sugar Magnolia by the Grateful Dead, just a little later than the 60's though, 1970 on the recorded date.
