    The flip of the Satintones 45 already mentioned is also kind of about cars. The lyrics talk about going to The Hop in his raggedy jalop that doesn't have brakes or a top.

    Well not really what was intended but The Stylers' "Pushing Up Daisies" is about driving [too fast]:

    I heard that in the 60's, W. Grand Blvd. would have made a GREAT Cadillac commercial.

    When you bought a Motown 45 in the 1960's, you got your moneys worth. This was the flip of "Nowhere To Run". "MOTORING" is BAADASS!!

    "Beep Beep" is a novelty single by The Playmates, released in 1958 by Roulette Records as the B-side to "Your Love".





    "Beep Beep" began charting with Billboard on November 3, 1958; it charted for 15 weeks, peaking at number four.
