just curious
the only description of the car is a "shiny red super stock dodge"
is the Charger the only one Dodge gave the label Super Stock?
i'm not a Dodge expert by any means so i was just curious.

ok, that's WAY cool, and i have an O/T question about it... if i save an animated .gif like that to my hard drive, how do I open it as an animation and not as a still frame? the couple I've tried only open as a single pic after i save them, but I'm pretty sure the frames are all there...

btw, cool diecast. I never knew what kind of Dodge it was either.

The song came out in 1964

Yes,

Given that the Beachboys released that hit single in 1964, they would have been referring to either a '62 or a '63 Dodge most likely.

It was Jan & Dean's song and would have referred to a Max Wedge or Race Hemi depending on when the song was released. I believe the Hemi (known as the Hemicharger) was anounced in Feb. 1964.

Beach Boys had Shut Down. That was a 413 Superstock Dodge. See this link for an excellent article. Of course the song is about beating a '63 Corvette which is a bit sad. (VERY sad in my particular case)

Jan & Dean's song was about a 426 (max wedge or hemi), the car that Mac originally posted, '64 Model has a Hemi.

THE LITTLE OLD LADY (FROM PASADENA)
Jan and Dean

It's the little old lady from Pasadena

The little old lady from Pasadena
(Go, Granny, go, Granny, go Granny go)
Has a pretty little flower bed of white gardenias
(Go, Granny, go, Granny, go Granny go)
But parked in a rickety old garage
Is a brand new, shiny red Super Stock Dodge

CHORUS:
And everybody's sayin' that there's nobody meaner
Than the little old lady from Pasadena
(She drives real fast and she drives real hard)
She's the terror of Colorado Boulevard

It's the little old lady from Pasadena
If you see her on the street don't try to choose her
(Go, Granny, go, Granny, go Granny go)
You might drive a goer but you'll never lose her
(Go, Granny, go, Granny, go Granny go)
Well, she's gonna get a ticket now sooner or later
'Cause she can't keep her foot off the accelerator

CHORUS

MUSICAL INTERLUDE

(Go, Granny, go, Granny, go Granny go)
(Go, Granny, go, Granny, go Granny go)
The guys come to race her for miles around
But she'll give 'em a length and then she'll shut 'em down

CHORUS

Go, Granny, go, Granny, go Granny go *REPEAT 6 TIMES

It never said what was in it.

Bob :)

Beach Boys - The Little Old Lady from Pasadena Lyrics

It's the little old lady from pasadena

It's the little old lady from pasadena
Go granny, go granny, go granny go
Got a pretty little flower bed of white gardenias
Go granny, go granny, go granny go
But parked in her rickety old garage
Is a brand new shiny red super-stock dodge

And everybody's saying there's nobody meaner
Than the little old lady from pasadena
She drives real fast and she drives real hard
She's a terror out on colorado boulevard

It's the little old lady from pasadena

You can see her on the street just gettin' her kicks now
Go granny, go granny, go granny go
With her four speed stick and her four-twenty-six now
Go granny, go granny, go granny go
She's gonna get a ticket now sooner or later
'cause she can?t keep her foot off the accelerator

And everybody's saying there's nobody meaner
Than the little old lady from pasadena
She drives real fast and she drives real hard
She's a terror out on colorado boulevard

And everybody's saying there's nobody meaner
Than the little old lady from pasadena
She drives real fast and she drives real hard
She's a terror out on coloradooulevard

It's the little old lady from pasadena

If you see her on the street don't try to choose her
Go granny, go granny, go granny go
You may have a goer but you'll never lose her
Go granny, go granny, go granny go
The guys come to race her from miles around
But she'll them a length and she'll shut 'em down

And everybody's saying there's nobody meaner
Than the little old lady from pasadena
She drives real fast and she drives real hard
She?s a terror out on colorado boulevard

It's the little old lady from pasadena

Go granny, go granny, go granny go
Granny go
Go granny, go granny, go granny go
Granny go
Go granny, go granny, go granny go
Granny go
Go granny, go granny, go granny go
Granny go
