    It's friday - transportation songs

    1976 MG Midget
    1969 Vauxhall Viva GT
    1958 Fiat Multipla (Barn art)

    I like both of those, although IMO it's the wrong version of "Hot Rod Lincoln". It was 12 cylinders, not 8.

    A great cover of a great "transportation" song.

    Like 'em all but Randall's "second choice" is tops. That whole CSN album. It vividly conjures up 1977.
