Today’s the day for the 7th Annual KOOL Classic Car Show on the Great Lawn at University Of Phoenix Stadium.  There are 56 classes of cars and the admission is free, so bring the family and your camera and come on out, we’re there until 4.  To set the mood, I’ve listed a dozen car songs you rarely (if ever) hear anymore, beginning with a song that a local favorite.  KRIZ championed the record credited to Faron Warmer, who in real life was KRIZ dj Gary Seger.  Outside of Phoenix tje song means nothing.  But locally a lot of prople still remember when crusin’ down Central Avenue was not only legal. it was a ritual.

CRUSIN’ CENTRAL – FARON WARMER

MERCEDES  BENZ – Janis Joplin

NO PARTICULAR PLACE TO GO – Chuck Berry

G.T.O. – Ronny and the Daytonas
