Thanks for the clips... brought back some great memories in my dads 1978 Mercury Grand Marquis cruising around with my buddies.

Actually got picked up for speeding rocking out to the Cars one night ... worth the money

5. It's funny, I always think of Ocasek as the Cars' singer

Yet my favorite songs of theirs were sung by Orr (RIP also)...

8. So did I. Ric and Ben's singing voices sounded very similar to me.

I could never tell just from listening to them which was which.

10. It's almost unfair that the Cars had two great vocalists.

6. I saw them at Blossom Music Center near Cleveland in '84

Great live show. There was no other band like them.

The Cars validate the joke that vinyl sounds so much better today because the music was good then.
