    The lyrics to that song are so perfectly written- every line rhymes.
    Here's another great car song with the Beach Boys:

    I saw him live in the City, his wife plays the guitar behind him.
    They dont take any breaks, just one song after another which kind of bothered me, but good music..

    Can't be your work - beer is not in evidence.

    Made a mock up of the ZZ logo to go on the fretboard, scanned it and sent it to my old sign shop to get printed in black & yellow. I also ordered a wireless system since I can't use a cord.

    Here's the lo-tech way I found the balance point- a sausage stuffing tube. Beats math!

    If you zoom in on the original it looks like the zz goes over the top of the frets!
