I had a "1,000 Dollar Car" .  And knew the "Kid Next Door".  Great band.

I saw them open for John Fogerty sometime in the 90s at the Bakersfield Fox Theatre, the best live music venue in the San Joaquin Valley.  They looked more like punk rockers than anything else and all their amps and instruments looked like they came out of pawn shops. It was straight ahead high voltage distorted rock and roll with some country sounding licks here and there.
