LOVED your feature on Aussie songs about cars (SM, Oct ’17) – great variety of songs. My absolute favourite (and glad you noticed it) was Radio Birdman’s 455 SD. 455 SD is, to my ears, the best song ever written about a muscle car because musically it somehow of captures the automotive ‘feel’ of being in one of those cars – especially when you push the accelerator pedal to the floor.
