actually, what Bruce was saying was "revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night."
"deuce" being 1932 Ford coupe [body of choice for street hot-rods from 1950s-80s].

Because of the confusion -- thanks Mr. d'Abo -- Bruce has been singing "cut loose like a deuce" recently.
Revved up like a deuce... son of a ... of course now that song makes sense...
is it the same deuce in the song little deuce coupe by the beach boys?
Believe so.....on the same LP (Oops, showing my age) dedicated to hot rodding, there's also the "Ballad of Ol' Betsy" ..whose lyrics start "She was born in '32...." *
