    When the big Impala comes drivin up"
    Don't know the name of that song [Came to me on a copied CD] but it goes on to describe the 40 with 3 carbs and he wins the drag race with the "big Impala".

    Adrian Belew mentioned the '52 Studebaker Starlight Coupe from Kerouac, he also mentioned an old blue Oldsmobile in a song about the passing of the train age. Can't forget this - the Dead Milkmen did a great song called Bitchin Camaro, and one called No One Can Go Camping in a Nitro Burning Funny Car.
