Why, David Lindley and E Rayo-X doing Mercury Blues back in the very very bad car era 80s. This song was better than the cars by a long shot.

I second Rush - Red Barchetta

Also more obscure - Velocity Girl "Go Coastal"

lyrics, sung by a hot female: "Let's drive away My day's wide open Get in my car I'll let you ride shotgun I love the way you look at me sideways If you don't mind, i'll stare at you straight on Come on let's go Will you bring your falling angel? You know i'll bring mine I want to know precisely is it just a matter of time? Until you realize I would drive you anyplace (let's go)..."

Pretty much anything by George Thorogood.
Barracuda by Heart
Hot for Teacher by VH. The beginning of that song sounds like a lumpy-idling dragster

another vote for Rush...also, Radar Love--Golden Earring. "Speedway at Nazareth" by Mark Knopfler is pretty cool.

I've never listened to it in a car though.
