The Cars were really great—deserving HOF inductees (as Raspberries would be!). I remember when the Cars burst onto the scene—I was just starting college—and had that weirdly cool punk-y pop sound. Their debut album was loaded with great sounds and songs, but my favorite Cars song came a little later: “Touch and Go.”

I've always liked this Cars inspired Fountains of Wayne song.

Note the little boy who looks an awful lot like Ric as well as the license plate on Rachel Hunter's convertible.

Lots of other Cars inspired homages to enjoy, like the pool scene homage to Fast Times At Ridgemont High featuring The Cars' Moving In Stereo.

And there is an homage to Judge Reinhold's other infamous scene from Fast Times... ;)
