"Little GTO" by Ronny and The Daytonas.

OK, back to the 60's: Sad day today - after 84 years, no more! This Nashville-based group had their debut hit in '64, peaking at #4, selling over one million copies and earning them a Gold Disc. "The Goat" was a '64 Tempest body with a 389 CID engine, copying a Ferrari model of the same name. In '70 they offered a 455 option! Doggone it, those were the days when cars were cars, gas was 30 cents per gallon and guys sang about fast cars, surfing and girls (not necessarily in that order!). Group? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Spanish Harlem Incident". Dylan performed it just a couple of times live shortly after the album came out and never again. One of my fave early Byrds tunes.
