OK, in honor of Sammy Hagar playing here not too long ago, here goes some VH automotive trivia.

1. Name the car that is heard revving its engine as part of the song Panama

2. Sammy & Mike took delivery here in Detroit of their newest cars back in May. What were they? and for bonus - who got what color?

3. Eddie got together with an automotive magazine years ago and put together a contest. The winner got a vehicle similar to one that was made for Eddie. What was that vehicle? and for bonus - what is the VH connection with this particular vehicle?

4. What was the fate of the hot rod in the Hot For Teacher video?

5. What car was instrumental in having Sammy become VH's second lead singer?

6. What car model had a commercial using VH's version of You Really Got Me?

7. What GM vehicle is mentioned in the title of a Sammy Hagar song, and what is the full title of the song?

Yeah. I know. Glad I saw them last year. Unless Eddie gets his stuff together, I suspect they are done, save for maybe a performance at the RnR HoF.
