Default Help me name this quilt!

I've just finished this baby quilt for a soon to be arriving grandson of some friends of ours. The new grandpa is a used car dealer and this grandbaby has been wanted for such a long time. Their daughter and son in law have wanted and tried to have a family for years and this little boy is an answer to many prayers. As you can see, There are classic cars on the front and vintage license plates on the back. I always give my quilts names or quotes along with the name of the recipient on the label and I'm having trouble coming up with something I like. I'm looking at lyrics or titles to Steppenwolf songs at the moment...'Heavy Metal Thunder' 'Magic Carpet Ride' ...etc, but those are motorcycle songs. Springsteen's 'Born to Run' is another option...you can see where I'm going and none of them feel right. Any poems, lyrics or quotes about wheels, cars, racing or similar topics would be gratefully appreciated. I'd put a short poem on the back even. Or....something totally off the wall that has nothing to do with cars...

Thanks for looking and I can't wait to see what you all suggest.

"Zoom Zoom" is what first came to mind. Don't know if it fits your criteria though. What a great quilt for a baby boy! Nice job.

Route 66, from the old tv show. Or, better yet, Hot Wheels

No matter where life takes you, this is the adventure chosen for you and only you. Your mama and daddy have traveled many roads to get to you...

Sorry, not so good with the lyrics theme, but the new parents road trip seemed to jump out to me more than any song lyrics currently are... Road Trip?

"Baby you can drive my car" comes to mind, but the rest of the lyrics might not fit. Do they have a name yet for the future baby? "Mustang (........)" (Mustang Sally) might work.
