  • That is a real classic song. It played for months on the radio and we never tired of hearing it. Just a side note, many cars of the 30's & 40's and even 50's had hand throttles in addition to the accelerator pedal. Primarily used for cold weather warm up but some folks also used it like a primitive cruise control. Had two uncles that used it that way and when riding with them I sat there like a nervous cat ready to slam the darn thing in if necessary.

  • Bingo, Carl.

    "I had my foot feed clear to the floor. I said that's all there is. There ain't no more."

    This, in my opinion, is one of the greatest lines that has ever been written into a car song. It's right up there with just about every line written into Shut Down by The Beach Boys.
