I wouldn't expect those of you to have any idea what muscle cars were all about, some songs for you all from a by-gone American era.

"409" by the Beach Boys


She's real fine my 409
She's real fine my 409
  My 409
Well I saved my pennies and I saved my dimes
(Giddy up giddy up 409)
For I knew there would be a time
(Giddy up giddy up 409)
When I would buy a brand new 409
(409, 409)
Giddy up giddy up giddy up 409
(Giddy up giddy up 409)
Giddy up 409
(Giddy up giddy up 409)
Giddy up 409
(Giddy up giddy up 409)
Giddy up 40...
Nothing can catch her
Nothing can touch my 409
  409 ooooo
(Giddy up giddy up oooo)
(Giddy up giddy up oooo)
(Giddy up giddy up oooo)
  (Giddy up giddy up)
When I take her to the track she really shines
(Giddy up giddy up 409)
  She always turns in the fastest times
(Giddy up giddy up 409)
  My four speed dual quad posi-traction 409
(409, 409, 409, 409)
Giddy up giddy up giddy up 409
(Giddy up giddy up 409)
Giddy up 409
(Giddy up giddy up 409)
Giddy up 409
(Giddy up giddy up 409)
Giddy up 40...
Nothing can catch her
Nothing can touch my 409
  (409 409 409 409)
Giddy up 409
  (409 409 409 409)
Giddy up 409
  (409 409 409 409)

"Fun, Fun, Fun" by the Beach Boys

Verse 1:
Well, she got her daddy's car
And she cruised through the hamburger stand, now
Seems she forgot all about the library
Like she told her old man, now
And with the radio blastin' goes
Cruisin' just as fast as she can, now

Chorus 1:
And she'll have fun, fun, fun
'Til her daddy takes the T-bird away
(Fun, fun, fun, 'til her daddy takes the T-bird away)

Verse 2:

Well, the girls can't stand her
'Cause she walks, looks, and drives like an ace, now
(You walk like an ace, now, you walk like an ace)
She makes the Indy 500 look like
The Roman chariot race, now
(You look like an ace, now, you look like an ace)
A lot of guys try to catch her
But she leads 'em on a wild goose chase, now
(You drive like an ace, now, you drive like an ace)

[repeat chorus]

Instrumental break (organ/guitar solo):

Verse 3:
Well, you knew all along
That your dad was gettin' wise to you, now
(You shouldn't-a lied, now, you shouldn't-a lied)
And since he took your set of keys
You been thinkin' that your fun is all through now
(You shouldn't-a lied, now, you shouldn't-a lied)
But you can come along with me
'Cause we got a lot of things to do now
(You shouldn't-a lied, now, you shouldn't-a lied)

Chorus 2 [2X]:
And we'll have fun, fun, fun
Now that Daddy took the T-bird away
(Fun, fun, fun, now that Daddy took the T-bird away)

Coda [repeat to fade]:
Fun, fun, fun now that Daddy took the T-bird away
Fun, fun, now that Daddy took the T-bird away

"Blue Corvette" by Adam Gregory

Grandpa met Grandma back in 1962
He's still got that picture of them in that car blue
And he tells these stories about living life and love
About them against the world and never giving up, he said

Put the pedal to the metal with the top down dreaming
Hands on the wheel with the engine screaming
Remember what you give is what you get
It goes by fast it goes by quick
If you stand on the sidelines watching it
Or life will pass you by like a blue corvette

I was 21 when he handed me the keys
He said boy she's all yours, fill'er up with memories
She'll take you through the ups and down
Any storm that comes along
If you drive her right, she'll never steer you wrong

Put the pedal to the metal with the top down dreaming
Hands on the wheel with the engine screaming
Remember what you give is what you get
It goes by fast it goes by quick

[ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/blue-corvette-lyrics-adam-gregory.html ]

If you stand on the sidelines watching it
Or life will pass you by like a blue corvette

I drove that car the way he said
And then i met the girl
Now it's her and I
Whatever comes
It's us against the world, yeah
Blue Corvette

Put the pedal to the metal with the top down dreaming
Hands on the wheel with the engine screaming
Remember what you give is what you get
Oh, It goes by fast it goes by quick
If you stand on the sidelines watching it
Or life will pass you by like a blue corvette

Don't let life pass you by like a blue corvette
like a blue corvette
