I am going to burn a CD of "Mustang Driving Music". I am curious, what Music do you think reminds you of driving your Mustang? My personal favorite for this is "Detroit Rock City" by Kiss. Any other good ones?

Maggie May, Rod Stewart. For some strange reason, my indelible memory of that song was a fall day when I was out cruising in my 'stang. Maybe it's because it really was "late September and I really should be back" aboard ship.

Note: the song was not yet an "oldie" when this memory was formed! (LOL)

"Slow Ride" by Foghat. Great Cruising song. Goes perfectly at the end of Dazed and Confused when they're cruising in the Chevelle playing that song.

Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin. I heard it first in the 65 GT Coupe I had, and it was simply awesome, even on AM! Still is, but not on AM... me check your shorts! My multimeter is just a-waiting! Formerly known as Midlife in the old VMF.

Got to be Zeppelin, so many good songs. If I had to choose, probably would be Heartbreaker, Live in Vienna 73.
Oh, did I mention that I collect Zep bootlegs.... another time consuming and sometimes expensive hobby. My wife smiles and says I am truly one-of-a-kind, I'm willing to be there are others similar...... ( most VMF members :)

Hey! I may be "old" but I'm not dead, yet. If I keep talking Mustang at home then I may be . . . sooner than I expect. *G*

Thanks for all of the great ideas!! Brought back some good memories of my own.
