Songs about cars

Following on from the Trains thread that is now a few years old, what about car songs? Obviously, we have Golden Smog's Corvette and about 3 album's worth of Springsteen material but what else revs yer engine?

Perhaps this article will help slip things into top gear. Okay, that's enough bad car puns so let's get the pedal to the metal and hit the highway.

3 albums? I'd say about 10.

Tom Waits Ol' 55...

"Sleeper coach driver" by Reverend Horton Heat, not exactly a car, but... more or less I always liked this song

Big Yellow Taxi - Joni Mitchell
Car on a Hill - Joni Mitchell

Hmm, seems even the most intimate and introspective of songwriters are compelled to sing about cars. Interesting.
