You Belong in a Dodge!

I picked this up at an estate sale in the Tam O' Shanter subdivision a couple Saturday's ago.  The same house where I bought the Dawn doll (no sale, by the way):


I'm guessing this was a promotional record dealerships would give you either when you were looking or when you actually bought a car. This one is for the 1970 Dodge line up -- Dart, Polara, Charger, and Challenger.  It's the size of a 45, but plays at 33 1/3.

I could go on about the tracks themselves, but why not listen for yourself.

Side 1:



Francis Knows the Answers

Challenger Challenges You

Side 2:

Dart

Polara, Polara

This one has the greatest alliterative ending line of a song ever: "It's a chore to check a chick in a Charger!"

Charger Charges On

  2. Oh, I don't know... Polara, Polara is kind of catchy and has that funky reverb at 0:15 and 0:41. :) And you can't argue with a rhyme of Polara and Scarlet O'Hara. Musical genius!
