    The cool thing about car songs is in most cases they could be about cars or the ladies. I think a few already mentioned are examples of that.

    Here's a few more that come to mind.

    Hotter than a two dollar pistol (George Jones) - at least you think so until the last verse


    Panama (Van Halen)
