Cars & Girls - "Prefab Sprout" - Play this track here.

¿Whats this iPod Shuffle set all about? Read about it here

A car for a lady? This is a track that brings back brilliant memories for me.

According to the Guinness Book of British Hit Singles & Albums, the band was named after a phrase from the Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood song, "Jackson", misheard by frontman Paddy McAloon. The correct opening lyrics for "Jackson" are "We got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout" which McAloon misinterpreted as 'hotter than a prefab sprout'. The rest is history.

This track is from the excellent 'From Langley Park to Memphis' album. It was the first single and only actually reached 44 in the UK charts, although spent a month or so there.

The song is a response to Bruce Springsteen's perceived lyrical style and alleged narrow song repertoire. Pat McAloon suggests that Springsteen's worldview is too restricted and that "some things hurt more, much more, than cars and girls". Ironically, the song's popularity is partly due to it being misinterpreted as a "driving song", leading it to appear on compilation albums such as Summer Cruisin' and Top Gear.

Checkout 'Langley Park' for some of the greatest tracks from the band.

Fiat previewed the all new 500 in March 2007. This was exactly 50 years after the first Fiat 500 was presented. The design of the new 2007 Fiat 500 is based on the 2004 Fiat Trepiuno concept. This car features a distinctive retro-look just like the Volkswagen New Beetle and BMW MINI but is substantially cheaper than those cars.

It has a starting price of €10,500 (similar to how the original Fiat 500 was cheaper than the Volkswagen Beetle and Austin Mini). Fiat shares the underpinnings of the new 500 with Ford for the 2009 Ford Ka. They are made at the Fiat factory in Tychy, Poland.

The pink one is a limited edition so you had better move fast! This one can be found at Arnold Clark (ex Dane Vauxhall) in Northwich, Cheshire. To get yours girls (or chaps if you have the urge!), follow this link.
