Jehu had a chariot of ninety-nine horsepower.
He drove through Ramoth-Gilead at eighty miles an hour.
He had to use his four-wheel brakes as he went through Jezreel
'Cause little bits of Jezebel got caught up in the wheel.
                            (From "The Darkies' Sunday School")

Sung to the tune of "The Hartlepool Monkey".

Which shows that they were notable when that was written
(probably just post WWI).

James - who collects (and occasionally writes) verses for it.
