Coffee Brake: A Musical Interlude

Well East coast cars are hip
I really dig those wheels they wear
And the Southern trucks with the way they don't start
They sit on blocks when I'm down there

1971 MGB GT offered for $7995 in Capitola, CA.

The Mid-West farmer's tractors really make you feel alright
And the Northern cars with the way they rust
They keep their owners up at night

1965 Bradley GT offered for $3,000 in SF Bay Area, CA.

I wish they all could be California cars
I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California cars

1965 Citroen 2CV offered for $11,900 in San Diego, CA.
The West coast has the sunshine
And the cars all get so slammed
I dig a French 2CV on Harbor Freight dollies
By a palm tree in the sand

1972 Mercury Capri offered for $3,500 in Los Gatos, CA.
I been all around this great big world
And I seen all kinds of cars
Yeah, but I couldn't wait to get back in the States
Back to the cleanest cars in the world

1968 BMW 2002 Project offered for $5,800 in San Jose, CA.
I wish they all could be California cars
I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California cars

1970 Volkswagen Baja Bug offered for $1400 in Oceanside, CA.

I wish they all could be California cars
I wish they all could be California cars
I wish they all could be California cars
I wish they all could be California cars
I wish they all could be California cars
I wish they all could be California cars
I wish they all could be California cars

2001 BMW 330CI convertible 5-speed offered for $4995 in San Diego, CA.
My apologies to the Beach Boys.

  1. Wonderful, DT, just wonderful. And anything with a 2CV in it requires no apology in my books!

    Of course you know the rest of the continent has a love/hate relationship with California cars. We are thrilled that there is a place where so many fabulous cars can exist, and we are jealous that it is not where we are. "Vive La Californie Libre".
