The name’s Flyrod. American car culture is my thing. If it rolls, roars, or rumbles I’m into it. Statistics and facts aren’t my gig. My mission is to track down and capture the infamous rides that make up pop culture, and to tell their stories.

    Rocket to Nashville

    On a bright summer day back in fifty-seven
    She rambled her way to that Tennessee heaven

    On a westbound road in a Rocket Eighty-Eight
    A woman in pursuit of a much better fate

    That Nashville skyline was just up the road
    She eased off the gas as the Oldsmobile slowed

    She had a lot of money and her daddy was rich
    The gal had it all but there still was a hitch

    Her greatest source of happiness was playing her guitar
    And singing country ballad’s by her favorite star

    She liked to write songs, she didn’t care if it sells
    She was a honky tonk angel like her hero Kitty Wells

    She bought a little dive with a dance floor and a stage
    Where she sang every night, it was all the rage

    She never got famous but it didn’t really matter
    There’s a lot more to life than climbing that ladder

    To a “have-it-all” world this might sound funny
    But doing what you love is even better than money

    She lived the simple life and gave her money away
    Possessions didn’t matter she just loved to play

    Her rule had two exceptions; this is what they are
    A guitar made by Martin and an Oldsmobile car
