    @Varnes

    If you start me up
    If you start me up I’ll never stop
    I’ve been running hot
    You got me ticking gonna blow my top
    If you start me up
    If you start me up I’ll never stop
    You make a grown man cry
    Spread out the oil, the gasoline
    Kick on the starter give it all you got, you got, you got
    I can’t compete with the riders in the other heats
    You make a grown man cry
    Ride like the wind at double speed
    I’ll take you places that you’ve never, never seen …

    He’s holding jumper cables. Mick’s car is not functioning, so he’s offering to start ’er up.

    Little known fact. 20-odd years later, the same guy had a very similar encounter with Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth.

    From what I understand, it was usually Mick who jumped her.

    Oh…. and MadVirgo from yesterday…
    thank you.

    There was so much rambling off into other interpretations after my post
    I was starting to think no one got it OR had ever heard of the Technotronics song…
    (Not that I like it.)

    LOL

    @SusanSunshine

    Seriously? I have tio explain a Brevity gag to The Queen Of Sunshine herself?
    BVTYBVTY is “brevity” of course, and then repeated as a self-deprecating effort at verbose redundancy.
    And folks, what’s this “Jaguar” nonsense?
    The car is a very nicely rendered 1973 Ferrari Dino.

    One of the most perfectly pretty cars ever made. Dare I suggest that the first image you see at this link is awfully familiar? And it’s red as well.

    What does it mean at the end of that song when he sings “you make a dead man come”?
    Lazarus syndrome?
