While I'm building my "Dream Vanagon" it sits at the dock of the bay in my shop.



Just chillin'



Hoping I don't have to wait until this Fall to drive it again



When it's back on the road, I'll be ready to hit the road

Pretty "Easy" one for me.
Probably too obvious.

When I think of my work van, no song comes to mind. Instead, I flash to a Timex commercial-"it takes a licking and keeps on ticking!"

Given that her name is 'Dixie' and I've been playing bluegrass for 35 years, the song choices are almost endless?

The Carter Family

Hot Rize
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3Ys_vqynPE

Dixie Hoedown
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHzYcQkS-5g

Of course, Dixie Breakdown
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4zndQAI5bA

And many more: Daybreak in Dixie, My Dixie Home, Are you from Dixie, When the Roses Bloom in Dixieland, etc.

I hit the buzzer on this one.

Old Willie - Always on my Mind


brianbernal71 Tue May 16, 2017 4:42 pm

I'm surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet, but this song is on my mind most of the time I'm driving old vw's..and it's pretty much one of the best songs of all time..

Long MayYou Run by Neil Young

We've been through
Some things together
With trunks of memories
Still to come
We found things to do
In stormy weather
Long may you run.

Long may you run.
Long may you run.
Although these changes
Have come
With your chrome heart shining
In the sun
Long may you run.

Well, it was
Back in Blind River in 1962
When I last saw you alive
But we missed that shift
On the long decline
Long may you run.

Long may you run.
Long may you run.
Although these changes
Have come
With your chrome heart shining
In the sun
Long may you run.

Maybe The Beach Boys
Have got you now
With those waves
Singing "Caroline No"
Rollin' down
That empty ocean road
Gettin' to the surf on time.

Long may you run.
Long may you run.
Although these changes
Have come
With your chrome heart shining
In the sun
Long may you run

Couldn't figure out how to post the video..anyone able to help with that?

Hi, Brian:

Thanks for coming to my pad to play records. 8)

There's a few ways for linking that I use:
With a vid up on your browser, click on the URL (web address) until it highlights, hit Copy, then Paste into wherever you want it;
Go to the red arrow or other symbol on a URL's left end, click and hold mouse on it, and drag to wherever you want it and release mouse;
If on a cell phone, tap a URL until it highlights, lightly select the URL and in most cases a sub-menu will drop down with choices click "Copy" and then Paste into wherever.

Thanks Again!

In the meantime, this seems a good vid of your song choice!:
