The "Beep, Beep" song was on the Billboard Top 40 chart for twelve weeks. Concurrently with this song, American Motors (AMC) was setting production and sales records for the Rambler models.

Despite its silliness, "Beep Beep" - written by group members Carl Cicchetti and Donald Claps - climbed to number four in the nation in December 1958 and earned the Playmates the right to record an album .

The "Beep, Beep" record cover. The Playmates were a late 1950s vocal group led by the pianist Chic Hetti (born Carl Cicchetti, 26 February 1930), drummer Donny Conn (born Donald Claps, 29 March 1930 – September 2, 2015), and Morey Carr (31 July 1932 – 1987), all from Waterbury, Connecticut. They followed up with a chart listing single in 1959 with "What Is Love" and then again in 1960 with "Wait For Me". After four albums for Roulette, the novelty group - known for its between-song comedy and banter as much for its repertoire - broke up in 1965. Morey Carr died from lung cancer in 1987. Donald Claps died in Malibu, California, on September 2, 2015 at the age of 85.

Album descriptions on Last.

Beep! Beep! I'll show him that a Cadillac Is not a car to scorn Beep beep. Beep! Beep! Beep beep. His horn went beep beep beep Now we're doing a hundred and ten - This certainly was a race For a Rambler to pass a Caddy Would be a big disgrace The guy must've wanted to pass me up As he kept on tooting his horn I'll show him that a Cadillac Is not a car to scorn Beep beep.

The Playmates - best known for Beep Beep, one of several Top 40 hits - were one of the first rock & roll groups signed to the New York-based Roulette Records, formed and co-owned by music industry leaders Morris Levy, Joe Kolsky, and George Goldner. Originally known as the Nitwits (probably a better name for them in the long run), the Playmates had been performing in the area around Waterbury, CT, for five years before signing to Roulette in 1958  . The Playmates - Wait for me. What is Love - The Playmates. The Playmates - Don& Go Home (Roulette 4072 - 1958). The Playmates - Beep Beep (Roulette 4115 - 1958). The Playmates - What Is Love (Roulette 4160 - 1959). The Playmates - All the Best (FULL ALBUM - BEST OF POP).

The original recording was actually banned by the BBC because advertising in songs wasn't allowed. Hence the words 'Cadillac' and 'Nash Rambler' were definitely out. Incredibly, the group decided to re-record the song for the UK market. Cadillac became 'limousine' and Nash Rambler 'bubble ca. The ending on the UK version is just slightly different. More songs from The Playmates. More songs inspired by cars  .

Beep Beep" is a song by The Playmates. The song is an example of accelerando, in which the tempo of the song gradually increases commensurate with the increasing speed of the drivers. The song is an example of "motoring music" in the chase mode. It is the classic turtle and hare story, but switched to a rivalry between drivers of two unequal cars: a Cadillac and a Nash Rambler.
