Songs of Inaudible Trucks and Cars is a collection of demos and live material that was collected to be Ozma's first LP release. The money made from CD sales funded the recording of Rock and Roll Part Three. Despite being a part of the band at the time of release, keyboardist Star Wick only plays on three songs on the album.[1] The songs "Shooting Stars", "Natalie Portman" and "Baseball" would appear finished on Rock and Roll Part Three. While the songs "Maybe in an Alternate Dimension" and "Flight of the Bootymaster would appear finished on The Doubble Donkey Disc.

An abridged version of the record was sold through MP3.com called "Songs of Audible Trucks and Cars", chosen because of a character limitation in the title.

On August 22, 2020, the band re-released this album through Bandcamp.

The album's name comes from the Cuatro/Ocho song, "Trucks and Cars".

First Strike EP

The "First Strike" EP was an EP made up of the non-Rod Cervera produced studio songs from Songs of Inaudible Trucks and Cars. It was never printed in large quantities and only a few burned CDs were made. Very shortly after its conceptualization, the EP was reworked into Songs of Inaudible Trucks and Cars. These are the only released Ozma songs to have Katherine Kieckhefer on keyboards.[2][3]
