Might not be a Chrysler. In any case the title of his greatest pure rock song, from 1965, is "From a Buick 6." Here are two "alternate takes."

Bonus: Bloomfield on alt take of great overlooked classic flop 1965 Dylan single, "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?" (Robbie replaced him on released version, which I still have on a 45). It stars at 3:50. -- G.M.
