For anybody interested that song by the Playmates had a second version. Cadillac/GM didn't appreciate the reference so the Playmates recorded another version replacing Cadillac with limousine. I guess it was all ironed out as the Cadi version is the only one you hear now.

 Edit, here's the real story, according to Wiki-pedia: 
Because of a directive by the - BBC that songs not include - brand names in their - lyrics, a UK re-recorded version of "Beep Beep" was recorded for the - European market replacing the - Cadillac and - Nash Rambler with the generic terms the - Limousine and - Bubble car.
This is priceless...thanks for sharing!

I can remember when the song first came out in 58,   and my mom not getting the joke.

She complained no car could go over 100 mph in second gear, she failed to see the humor.
