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.
You were cruising on Main when that bullet whizzed byA Model A Ford with a license to fly
He had an old Lincoln motor with a set of duel quadsThey said he was the king of the old school rods
With no shinny paint or sparkling chromeAn old Skelly station was the place he called home
With an open-air roof held together with slatsHe belonged to a club called the Milltown Rats
In your Fifty-Five Chevy with a modified EightEverybody new you were the fastest in the state
Who is this jockey with the rusty old ride?The word around town is that he’s messing with your pride
So when the Ford stopped at the light up aheadYou rolled down your window and this is what you said,
“Hey there fool, have you had your Tetanus shotThat piece of junk you’re driving ain’t worth jack squat.”
He said, “Meet me on Riverside in half an hourYou make a lot of noise, but you ain’t got the power”
The sun was coming up for the big showdownWith your header plugs off, it was time to shut him down
A crusty old car-guy with long grey hairUp against a young dude looking for a dare
When the light turned green and the tires were smoking”It was time to let him know that you sure weren’t jokin’
You jumped off the line and took an early leadThat big block engine was building-up speed
Then you threw a rod and you started to swearAnd the old Ford driver through his finger in the air
He blew off your doors and left you in the dustHe schooled you in the virtues and the power of rust
