It's time for a poll

Good thing that Olds song is posted in the Buick section. Someone might ask where the 394 went.

 

Next thing you know they'll be putting this to music.

 

Shes real fun my 401
Shes real fun my 401
My 401

Well I saved my pennies and I saved my dimes
(giddy up giddy up 401)
For I knew there would be a time
(giddy up giddy up 401)
When I would buy a brand new 401
(401, 401)
Giddy up giddy up giddy up 401
(giddy up giddy up 401)
Giddy up 401
(giddy up giddy up 401)
Giddy up 401
(giddy up giddy up 401)
Giddy up 40...

Nothing can catch her
Nothing can touch my 401
401 ooooo
(giddy up giddy up oooo)
(giddy up giddy up oooo)
(giddy up giddy up oooo)
(giddy up giddy up)

When I take her to the cruise she really shines
(giddy up giddy up 401)
She  attracts the milfs and they stand in lines
(giddy up giddy up 401)
My big floatin Dynaflow wide ass 401
(401, 401, 401, 401)

Giddy up giddy up giddy up 401
(giddy up giddy up 401)
Giddy up 401
(giddy up giddy up 401)
Giddy up 401
(giddy up giddy up 401)
Giddy up 40...

Nothing can catch her
Nothing can touch my 401
(401 401 401 401)
Giddy up 401
(401 401 401 401)
Giddy up 401
(401 401 401 401)

Here's Charlie's '47 Super

 

He can ride with me. His wife probably threw him out because he had his son stand by the dirt road while he drove by at 65 on biased tires.

Oh, that other post, I've never owned a car that attracted so many "older women" than my '60 Electra.

Hollywood Nights by Bob Seger, Life in the Fast Lane by the Eagles, almost anything by Journey or ZZ Top, and an old song Robert Plant did as a solo artist back in about 83 or 84 called Big Log.

Hi Everyone..........I just joined this forum. Although I don't own a Riviera my dad owned a 69" when I was in high school so it is my dream to own and restore one one day. Lots of good music choices out there. I nominate Lynyrd Skynrd's Mr. Breeze!

I've never been one to be in favor of polls but Pat Curran brought up something in reply to a thread started by a new member who recently bought a 1965 Riviera.  Pat suggested that as the new owner is driving down the road he listens to Jr. Brown playing "Surf Medley."  Now if you want to get right down to it, "Surf Medley" is a medley of the following four songs - "Pipeline" by the Chantays, "Walk Don't Run" by the Ventures, "Out of Limits" by the Marketts, and "Secret Agent Man" by Johnny Rivers.

 

My question (poll) to everyone is what is your favorite "Kruzin'" song.

 

I have two.  One for driving through the parking lot, and one for 'draggin' Main.'

 

"Harlem Nocturne" by the Viscounts with Harry Haller on saxophone

 

 

 

and "Green Oniions" by Booker T and the MG's.

 

 

 

What's yours.  Please post an audio or video if you can.

 

Thanks, Ed

 

Then there's the favorite of everyone who owns a '63

 

 

 

Start listening closely when the the artist starts talking about "It's got a V8 made in '63, Turbine drive automatic what else what could it be.........my Riviera leaves 'em smokin' in its tracks....."

 

The video itself was put together by a group of Dutch boattail owners and features some original advertising footage - no '63 Riviera in the video.

 

 

Ed, It would easier for me to name my name my top 25 tunes to play while I’m cruisin. Some of the tunes are 60’s under the radar pieces.

I only mentioned "Surf Medley" because it was Junior Brown's car at one time and I think the guitar sounds real good as well.  However, my favorite song to drive to is "Highway Star" by Deep Purple.  Crank up that song and put your foot into it!

Pat, if you like pedal steel check out Robert Randolph. Smokes!

Gents, the Riviera guys from Western PA know this singer/entertainer an under the radar star.

Great cruising tune with your main squeeze in your Riviera.

Gents, I like this one because Peter Green of Fleetwood Mac wrote the song.
