Default Military Cadence Thats Car Related

Not sure if theres any military members on this forum and Ive never heard any running cadences that were car related but cars are my life/motivation so Ive been putting some together. Open to opinions and I should get a chance to try them out next week on our platoon runs.
For those unfamiliar with military cadences its a call and response with one guy doing a line while the rest of the platoon repeats. This one is to the beat of left right left right left right a left.
One I put together this morning:

Five oh Five oh what do ya got,
Ive got a four on the floor and a fifty shot,

He said that dont mean you can outrun me,
Well I was caged in a rage and had to let him see,

So I let him have the start but I reeled him in,
If you still dont believe well we can run 'em again,

Well after one run I pulled up by his side,
He had his shoulders slumped down like he was tryin to hide,

Well your blue ovals strained but my bowties not,
And I didnt even get to use my fifty shot.

I loved cadences when I was in, how quick they fade from memory..
Sounds like you got a good start..

"Come baby come baby baby come come!..." works perfect in a quick time cadence. The first time I busted that one out as a DI at Ft Knox the other instructors fell out of formation rolling

TV Show theme songs were my thing when I was calling things...

Beverly Hillbillies and Gilligan's Island work perfect for a normal paced run. I still catch myself singing them in my head on a run sometimes.

I used to sit at home all day
Letting my life waste away

Then one day a man in blue
Said son I've got a job for you

Its trouble, adventure & loads of fun
We'll even teach you how to shoot a gun

There's room & board & pay to boot
And a brand new tailored business suit

I used to drive a Bonneville
Now all I do is run up a hill

I used to drive a Chevrolet
Now all I do is sleep in the hay

I used to drive a Cadillac
Now all I do is hump a pack

The Jody Calls of the 50s are not repeatable in the Army of One.

My Air Force TI only new one cadence. It was something like this

Ranger, Ranger in the sky.
Ranger, Ranger in the sky.
Take me to Iraq to die
Tell my mother i wont be coming home.

I forget the rest right now
