Always take the music...and the weather with you...

OK we’re wading into contentious waters here but below is clearly THE best driving music to accompany your RentAClassic experience. However we haven’t made it easy on ourselves oh no, as the songs have to come from the same decade as the car. And thanks to our high fidelity UE Roll Bluetooth Speakers available for hire for $15 a day, you’ve got no excuse not to download them onto your SmartPhone or any digital media player, pair up and prove us right!

Decades of THE Best Driving Music.....ever!

For the MG BGT & Alfa Spider S2….the best driving music from the 1970s

We’ve painted a sensational 70s soundscape for making groovy progress that would just about fit on a C120 cassette before it snapped. OK so the last 2 songs aren’t from that decade but how many cars have had songs written just for them?

For the Saab 9-3, Spider S4 & Jag XK8…the best driving music from the 1990s

For wind in your hair, feeling not a care, and hopefully no seagulls lurking anywhere, this is the definitive feel good, fresh air top & foot down tracks from the 1990s that everyone should hear, and will do if you’ve got the roof down and volume loud enough.
