Monday's lost and found: Ronnie Milsap 'She Loves My Car'

Only in the ‘80s, would one of country music’s most beloved entertainers, Ronnie Milsap, make a flashy Miami Vice inspired video about girls and cars.

She Loves My Car only reached No. 84 on the pop charts in 1984, however the song is actually a nice little pop number; just don’t ask yourself the question of how Ronnie Milsap actually drives a car since he has been blind since he was a child. Instead you should contemplate why more ‘80s videos didn’t have cameos by Herve Villechaize, Britt Ekland and Morgan Fairchild.

Of course, ‘80s videos are always ripe for spotting the diamond in the rough. In She Loves My Car, the lead car-loving girl is a 20-year old Mariska Harigitay, who would end up winning an Emmy in 2006 for her performance on Law & Order: SVU.

Milsap doesn’t have to worry about false love as he remains a popular act on the concert tour. Rest assured, I also emerged from the ‘80s pretty much convinced that no girl loved my basic mode of transportation 1978 Brown 4-Door Chevy Nova more than me.
