The '90's group, Bowling for Soup, in their song "1985" about a woman named Debbie who realizes that she is past her prime, has two automotive references:

" She was gonna shake her a** on Whitesnake's car
Her yellow SUV is now the enemy"

There are many songs about cars such as

“Driving with Private Malone” which is about a corvette, then Wade Hayes “In a Chevy” is the song title although the song is about a relationship.

There are just too many to list, but here are a few country songs that mention a car or a truck;

Alabama “Reckless” = “we’ll take my Thunderbird and leave tonight…”

Alan Jackson “Drive” = “It was an old flat bed Ford, bought it new in 64..”

Aaron Tippen, =“Ain’t nothing wrong with the Radio” talks about his car radio

Clay Walker “Chain of love” Talks about her Mercedes having a flat tire on the side of the road

Mark Chesnutt, “I just wanted you to know” talks about driving home at night

Mark Chesnutt, “Sure is Monday” talks about catching a nap while stretching out in his truck bed

Rickey van Shelton “Keep it between the line”

Sawyer Brown, “Some girls do” = “she turned up her nose as she walked by my Cadillac..”

Tracey Lawrence “If he good die young” “bought a hotrod ford, constable clocked me at 104…”

Chris Ledoux “Cadillac Ranch” “Now the only horns around here are upon the original 69 coupe de ville”

Tin Cup Chalice by Jimmy Buffett:

"Yes, and now you heard my strange proposal;
Get that Packard up and let's move.
I want to be there before the day
Tries to steal away and leave us behind;
I've made up my mind"


My favorite doesn't actually mention a specific vehicle, but does mention getting cut off in traffic and the ensuing song was written. I drive two hours each way, to and from work every day, so I sing this song a lot! LOL
