It's a girl, my lord, in a flatbed
Ford slowin� down to take a look at me

"Thunder Road" - Bruce Springsteen
In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets

The first year they had me puttin' wheels on Cadillacs


"Trans Am" - Sammy Hagar

I'm goin' to buy me a Mercury
And I'll cruise up and down this road

Here are a few more from me:


Everclear - AM Radio


Missing Persons - Walking in LA There's also a version of this song, a slow remix that features Sen Dog of Cypress Hill, off their remixed hits disc. I could not find it on YouTube, though.


Better than Ezra - Misunderstood Not the original video, but had the best sound quality on YouTube.

"When you're out with your friends in your new Mercedes-Benz, and you're...on drugs..." - Weezer

There's almost too many rap songs to mention that reference Benzes, and Caddy's as well.
