I like the sound of partially open headers, backed up with a side of 510 lift crane cam and a modified 340  ;D

How could I forget my fav-Highway Star,in fact that whole album rocks in the car!Space truckin,lazy,etc.

If Machine Head isn't the gul-dang best driving *album* ever, I don't know what is.

Under Pressure - ZZ Top

Hey 72cuda... if my sources are correct... and it's the same Under Pressure song that I'm thinking of... Queen is actually the original artist... did ZZ Top do a remake??

 :D These are all great! Just about any of the good classic or newer heavy metal and harder rock will work. Even some old Grand Funk works like Foot Stompin Music and others. BBBBad to the Bone works for me too! There are too many to list, another is LeGrange by ZZ Top. Even Green Onions works! (giving away my age now). Crank it up!!! Rev it up!!! YeeeeeHawwww!!!  ;D

Come to think of it, Eliminator might be up there with Machine Head.

Guys, I'm a newbie here - had a 70 Chally R/T for 16 years (383 Mag slightly warmed over, 727 tranny, etc.), sold it in a moment of idiocy in 1993...now restoring a 70 Chally sedan to R/T specs (383 Mag again, this time with a 4-spd w/pistol grip)...and to make it a clone not only of an R/T but the Alpine White star of Vanishnig Point.

So...to answer the question...my album for driving my Mopar? The soundtrack to Vanishng Point, of course! Try shifting from 3rd to 4th at 5800 rpm during "Freedom of Ex-Pression"... ;D
I freaking hate everything but Mopars.  Period.

For a Cuda, "Barracuda" by Heart.
But, for a Challenger, Theres an obvious choice as well. The soundtrack to "Vanishing Point". Not the whole thing with the strange off the wall stuff played by the DJ. No, just that background instrumental that runs through the movie as Kowalski is driving.
For my black 68 Charger, I have the soundtrack to "Bullitt". I need to make a separate recording of just the instumental music leading up to the chase scene. I wonder if anyone would notice the connection if i drove the Charger to the local cruise-in with that music playing.

;D I'm sure they would if someone in a Mustclang came chasing in after you!  ::)
