Music Time: “Cars & Driving Edition” 10/15/16

One thing that having to rent a car when I need it now and then has proved to me: car seats are more and more uncomfortable for people with lower back issues, especially if you have had surgery or damage in the lumbar area (L5/S1). Hyundai used to have good seats, but now they don’t. I may have no choice but to buy a really old used piece of shit and just nickle and dime myself to death taking care of it.

That being said… songs about cars and driving it is…
