    Can't believe thread's got this far without a personal favourite The Sonics - Boss Hoss


    Slightly off topic, Jamiroquai's Black Devil Car is about his Enzo. Even more so, Junkie XLs Big Sounds of the Drags and Amon Tobin's 'Supermodified' are two largely instrumental dance albums in part inspired by drag racing, but a few samples are the only discernible direct influence

    Black Sunshine-White Zombie
    Gripping the wheel his knuckles went white with desire
    The wheels of his Mustang exploding on the highway like a slug from a .45
    True Death: 400 Horsepower of maximum performance piercing the night
    This is Black Sunshine
     
  10. GENE SIMMONS- Peroxide Blonde in a Hopped Up Model Ford

    Well, we drug down Main, just to make a scene
    I barked my tyres as the light turned green
    I slapped her to the floor and I let out on the clutch
    And what was left on the road, it wasn't very much
    We flew out of town, we were side by side
    Twin carburetors was a runnin' wild
    The smoke was ballin' up for a mile behind
    I dated that blonde, she left me way behind
    When I was draggin', draggin' down Main once more
    With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up model Ford
    Ooh, now I never-never-never drag down Main no more
    With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up model Ford
    Ooh, a peroxide blonde in a hopped up model Ford
    Yeah, a peroxide blonde in a hopped up model Ford
    With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up model Ford
    Ooh, when I'm draggin', draggin' down Main once more
    With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up model Ford
    Ooh-ooh...

    Asshole [Dennis Leary]


    You know what I'm gonna do?
    I'm gonna get myself a 1967 Cadillac Eldorado convertible
    Hot pink, with whale skin hubcaps
    And all leather cow interior
    And big brown baby seal eyes for head lights (yeah)
    And I'm gonna drive in that baby at 115 miles per hour
    Gettin' 1 mile per gallon
    Sucking down Quarter Pounder cheeseburgers from McDonald's
    In the old fashioned non-biodegradable styrofoam containers
    And when I'm done sucking down those greaseball burgers
    I'm gonna wipe my mouth with the American flag

  12. Warren Smith Red Cadillac and a Black Mustache

    Who you been lovin' since I been gone
    A long tall man with a red coat on
    Good-for-nothing-baby you've been doing me wrong
    Who you been lovin' since I been gone

    Who you been lovin' since I been gone

    Who's been playing around with you
    A real cool cat with eyes of blue
    Triflin' baby are you being true
    Who's been foiling around with you

    Who's been fooling around with you

    Somebody saw you at the break of day
    Dining and a-dancing in the cabaret
    He was long and tall, he had plenty of cash
    He had a red Cadillac and a black mustache
    He held your hand and he sang you a song
    Who you been lovin' since I been gone

    Who you been lovin' since I been gone

  16. One of my kids sent me this to remember our Studebaker pickup they grew up with.
    It sounds almost like it was written for us. :)

    Racer X - Big Black

    Less about a real car ...but it does mention Racer X's car (the Shooting Star) and Speed Racer's Mach 5... and more racing, and the Racer family dynamics...
