Yesterday I drove our long-term 2009 Nissan GT-R out to Pomona to the wonderful Wally Parks' NHRA Motorsports Museum, which is under the watchful eye of executive director Tony Thacker and only seems to get better every time I visit. What a great place.

Hmmmmm. So I jumped in the GT-R and took it out to Pomona. Anybody out there like Ronnie and the Daytonas?

Little GT-R, you're really lookin' fine
Twin Turbos and a six-speed and a 7000 rpm redline
Listen to her tachin' up now, listen to that gear why-ee-eye-ine
C'mon and turn it on, wind it up, blow it out GT-R

Wa-wa, (mixed with "Yeah, yeah, little GT-R") wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa
(mixed with "Yeah, yeah, little GT-R")
Wa-wa, (mixed with "Yeah, yeah, little GT-R") wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa
(mixed with "Yeah, yeah, little GT-R")
Wa-wa (mixed with "Ahhh, little GT-R") wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa

You oughta see her on a road course or a quarter mile
This little modified Nissan has got plenty of style
She beats the Corvettes and the Porsches, really drives 'em why-ee-eye-ild
C'mon and turn it on, wind it up, blow it out GT-R


Wa-wa, (mixed with "Yeah, yeah, little GT-R") wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa
(mixed with "Yeah, yeah, little GT-R")
Wa-wa, (mixed with "Yeah, yeah, little GT-R") wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa
(mixed with "Yeah, yeah, little GT-R")
Wa-wa (mixed with "Ahhh, little GT-R") wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa

MIXTURE
Gonna save all my money (turnin' it on, blowin' it out) and buy a GT-R (turnin' it on,
blowin' it out)
Get a helmet and a roll bar (turnin' it on, blowin' it out) and I'll be ready to go
(turnin'
it on, blowin' it out)
Take it out to Pomona (turnin' it on, blowin' it out) and let 'em know (turnin' it on,
blowin' it out), yeah, yeah
That I'm the coolest thing around
Little buddy, gonna shut you down
When I turn it on, wind it up, blow it out GT-R
