No matter what part of the planet you stand on, just about everyone can agree that beautiful women, rock & roll, and musclecars go together hand in hand. Being automotive journalists, we do occasionally find ourselves giving a review about a new movie, a commercial, or a music video featuring musclecars.
By no means are we music critics, and although some of you may actually be fans of the rock group, Train, we had completely forgotten that they even existed. So when we had heard they had released a single entitled ‘Drive By’ off of their latest album of the same name, their sixth studio release, we were a little surprised.
We were especially impressed by the fact that the video featured more musclecars in it than any other music video that we can ever recall. The band’s front man, Patrick Monahan, is seen driving his ’67 Firebird convertible around L.A, being accompanied by his band mates in a ’67 Camaro RS and a ’65 Mustang Fastback, respectively.
The trio of pony cars ultimately ends up at a classic car show of sorts where countless 1st-gen Camaros, several Chevelles, a handful of Mopars, and a couple of Shelby Cobra roadsters are proudly put on display. As an added bonus there are plenty of gorgeous women on hand promoting Royal Purple synthetic oil like it’s going out of style. We’re not complaining.
The general premise of the video is that Monahan’s girlfriend breaks up with him, and he’s driving around reminiscing about their relationship with a hope of getting her back. It’s a situation that most of us have found ourselves in, so we can relate. However, the song itself sounds much too pop-like for your author to inspire an album purchase. We dig the cars though.
