There is a lot of money in THAT parking lot. Must be Kalifohnia by the way they (don't) stop at the stop signs.

Would love to see Bob (67 Heaven) rock in there with open pipes and show them what a good old-fashioned American big block can throw down. ;)

That's the place the old lyme green Speedster was that CallawayC8 posted about. It tends to have a Vector W8 or Vector M12 there as well.

I heard recently that the show was going to be shut down. Apparently they want to make that parking lot 15 minute parking only, which would shut that gathering down unfortunately.

I'm pretty sure there was a song called "My Corolla" by the Knack though.

"Ooh you make my motor run, my motor run.
Gun it comin' off the line Corolla
Never gonna stop, give it up.
Such a dirty mind. Always get it up for the touch
of the younger kind. My my my i yi woo. M M M My Corolla..."

Yeah... I don't understand the lyrics either... :L

Ummm.... :ugh


Recorded by "The Knack"
Album: "Get The Knack" - 1979



Oo my little pretty one, pretty one
When you gonna give me some time, Sharona?
Oo you make my motor run, my motor run
Gun it coming off of the line, Sharona
Never gonna stop, give it up, such a dirty mind
I always get it up with a touch of the younger kind
My-ee ey-ee by-ee ahee ah woo!
Ma ma ma my Sharona

Come a little closer, over here
Close enough to look in my eyes, Sharona
Keep a little mystery, kissin' me
Runnin' down the length of my thigh, Sharona
Never gonna stop, give it up, such a dirty mind
I always get it up from a touch of the younger kind
My-ee ey-ee by-ee ahee ah woo!
Ma ma ma my Sharona
Ma ma ma my Sharona

When ya gonna get to me, get to me
Is it just a matter of time, Sharona
Is it a destiny, a destiny
Or is it just a game in my mind, Sharona
Never gonna stop, give it up, such a dirty mind
I always get it up from a touch of the younger kind
My-ee ey-ee by-ee ahee ah woo!
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
Myee ey-ee by-ee ahee ah woo!
Ma ma ma my Sharona
Ooooh my Sharona

...or if a racing Camaro is more your style ~



[FONT=helvetica, arial]I got a sixty-nine Chevy with a 396
Fuelie heads and a Hurst on the floor
She's waiting tonight down in the parking lot
Outside the Seven-Eleven store
Me and my partner Sonny built her straight out of scratch
And he rides with me from town to town
We only run for the money got no strings attached
We shut 'em up and then we shut 'em down

Tonight, tonight the strip's just right
I wanna blow 'em off in my first heat
Summer's here and the time is right
For goin' racin' in the street

We take all the action we can meet
And we cover all the northeast state
When the strip shuts down we run 'em in the street
From the fire roads to the interstate
Some guys they just give up living
And start dying little by little, piece by piece
Some guys come home from work and wash up
And go racin' in the street

Tonight, tonight the strip's just right
I wanna blow 'em all out of their seats
Calling out around the world, we're going racin' in the street

I met her on the strip three years ago
In a Camaro with this dude from L.A.
I blew that Camaro off my back and drove that little girl away
But now there's wrinkles around my baby's eyes
And she cries herself to sleep at night
When I come home the house is dark
She sighs "Baby did you make it all right"
She sits on the porch of her daddy's house
But all her pretty dreams are torn
She stares off alone into the night
With the eyes of one who hates for just being born
For all the shut down strangers and hot rod angels
Rumbling through this promised land
Tonight my baby and me we're gonna ride to the sea
And wash these sins off our hands

Tonight tonight the highway's bright
Out of our way mister you best keep
'Cause summer's here and the time is right
For goin' racin' in the street

I think "My Corolla" might have been a Weirg Al Jankovic spoof song. Ok, I am showing my age :eyerole

Looks like a place where the Gumball 3000 stops for the night. No wait... these folks actually care about their cars. They don't beat the living snot out of them for 2500 miles.

:L Haha, I had no idea there was a parody of My Sharona. I thought I just made up my own pathetic parody of it myself... Guess I'll have to download it and play it on my ipod while driving my my my Corolla.

Some of you guys didn't realize I was being sarcastic about the whole thing... Oh well, I should have winked ;)

Very cool to find out it is an actual song. I thought I was the only one who sang it when the Knack came on the radio...

The best line in those lyrics you posted Chris is
"Gonna clean this piece of crap that's
My Corolla" Ain't it the truth... haha
