Like "Keepin' the Faith", by Billy Joel---
"Made it with the red-haired girl
In the Chevrolet"


Any more?

"Volvo Driving Soccer Mom" by Everclear is the first one that comes to my mind ...

I really used to be a bad girl
I got busted for possession of my wizard-shaped bong
I used to love to do the things they tell me not to do
But now I'm different--now I sing a new song

don mclean "american pie" - drove the chevy to the levy....

Good ones. There's also "Right Before Your Eyes" by America:

"Just like Rudolph Valentino,
Pull up in my limousine"


Would this one count? David Frizzell in "You're the Reason God Made Oklahoma"

"Worked all day on a John Deere tractor"

There have been quite a few groups with car names. The Cadillacs, and REO Speedwagon. Probably dozens if you count The Impalas and Fleetwood Mac. Even Buffalo-Springfield, if we count earth-moving equipment.

In Wierd Al Yankovic's hilarious parody of the Bob Dylan song, he uses the palindrome:

"A Toyota's a Toyota".

I might add that "speedo"by the Cadillacs is one of the most rockin songs I have ever heard. Made in the late 50s if you havent ever heard it check it out. A real treat. It rocks baby

Default Manhattan Transfer's

"Shaker Song" features "Chevrolet" and their "Foreign Affair" features "Rambler" in the lyrics

Billy Joel's "Captain Jack" features "brand new Chevrolet" and I think "It's Still Rock & Roll To Me" has "blue Continental" in the lyrics

Jim Croce's 'Bad Bad Leroy brown" features "Eldorado" in the lyrics and ELO had an album in 1974 called "Eldorado"

wasn't there a band called Ford Fairlane?
