This weekend at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, the Minnesota Street Rod Association (MSRA) is hosting its 42nd annual "Back to the '50s Weekend," a show that features thousands of classic automobiles.

The festivities also include plenty of oldies music, and we're guessing a lot of those songs mention cars. That reminds us there are a lot of great songs — past and present — that feature automobiles.

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs that mention a car in the title or lyrics do you want to hear? Send us your request.

Songs played

War "Low Rider"
Southern Culture on the Skids "69 El Camino"
Serge Gainsbourg "Ford Mustang"
Prince "Little Red Corvette"
Johnny Cash "One Piece at a Time"
Stray Cats "Look at That Cadillac"
Arcade Fire "Keep the Car Running"
