->''"I cannot hear a Music/BeachBoys car song without being immediately transported back to the summers of 1962 through 1965... I'm no longer a middle-aged guy driving to the laundry to pick up my shirts; I'm seventeen, and it's a summer night with tantalizing possibilities of adventure and romance hanging semipalpably in the humid air, and I'm cruising the roads around Armonk, New York, and even though the vehicle I'm cruising in is my mom's Plymouth Valiant station wagon, which boasts the performance characteristics and sex appeal of a forklift, I am feeling '''good''', and I am stomping on the gas pedal (not that this has any measurable effect on my mom's Valiant) and imagining that I'm at the wheel of a Stingray, singing triumphantly along with the Beach Boys as we roar past the Dodge 413..."''

* Taken to its ultimate logical conclusion by Music/{{Queen}} with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaEM4JYFPfw"I'm In Love With My Car"]]. The lyrics were inspired by one of their roadies who was [[ThePreciousPreciousCar a bit obsessive about his Triumph TR4]], which is admittedly an extremely CoolCar.
