That's hilarious, it just goes to show how clever nash was with the rambler and it's light, small size.

I think my kids knew this song before the ages of 8 and 5   they sung it at the AMC shows all over the place   
  Thanks for the laughs

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.

This is priceless...thanks for sharing!

Amazing that was made in the sixties. They were really ahead of their time. What freaks me, is how pristine the Rambler American is. Thanks for posting.
