I don't know if they were "good". I was very young at that time and could only afford a 283/four-barrel with a four-speed in a 1963 Impala. But I have seen them at recent classic car shows here. WOW! Pretty impressive looking. Do they move like a fuel-injected Corvette? I do not know.

Ok Guys another possible adjustment--

"The Super Stock starts whinin' out and movin'
My fuel-injected Stingray's really startin' to go,"

I always thought it was "Super Stock Dodge is whinin' out in low" -- if that makes sense.

Dep is still around after a few incarnations of his name, he is a bit quieter now after 13 years

Interestingly enough I didn't hear "six tail lights" in the song posted and after further review I was right there were 3 versions of the song

"Three versions of "Dead Man's Curve" were released:

Version #1: Original version from the 1963 Drag City album
Version #2: Single "hit" version with added horns, strings, additional backing vocals and sounds of a car skidding and crashing; from the 1964 Dead Man's Curve/The New Girl In School LP
Version #3: An earlier rejected studio mix from the 1966 Filet of Soul album.

Live versions appear on the 1965 Command Performance and 1971 Anthology albums

There are a few minor lyrical differences between versions #1 and 3 and version #2 listed above:

Versions #1 & 3 - "my frenched tail lights", "the strip was deserted" and "pulled her out and there I was"
Version #2 - "my six tail lights", "the street was deserted" and "pulled her out and there we were"

Good to hear that Dep is still out there. He moved south many years ago for retirement from his law enforcement career. Hope he tunes in.

OK, this is one of my favorites and I will let it go at that. The guy and his girlfriend at the track.

Some of us old gearheads living in Minnesota remember The Trashmen who recorded surf and hot rod music in the early 60's. . Tube City-Best of the Trashman CD has 3 neat car songs: A Bone, Sleeper, and My Woody. They had minor fame with their Surfin Bird single. Their stuff is available on Amazon, check them out.

Another vote for Fuel by Metallica! BTW James Hetfield, the singer for Metallica, has a *SERIOUS* car collection.

Dragula by Rob Zombie is good if you liked The Munsters/ 60s horror pop culture

No mention of Highway Star by Deep Purple? sheesh.
