I think it would be neat to get a collection of different car sounds.

I recorded these today on the way to the car show with my cell phone. I'm disappointed that it doesn't sound that great. Inside the cockpit it's crazy loud. You need headphones with the volume way up. Some people don't like the quadrajet sound. They dubbed in 426 hemi sounds in the Smokey and the bandit movie.

Maybe I need to look for a better recording device other than a $10 cell phone.

I love the quadrajet whine when the secondaries open up.

These guys did a good job catching it on camera too

That Challenger I got with the 6.4 Hemi sounds like a UPS truck pulling in the driveway when my wife gets home.
Bone stock but it's pretty loud for a stock car.
Quiet inside.

I remember back in the day my friend had an 83 Z28 in navy blue with the cross-fire injection(?). When the gas was nailed the flaps on the hood would open up.

The stock hood on my vette has a solenoid operated flapper door to let in cold pressurized air at the base of the windshield.

I remember some nice engine sounds watching the old Walking Tall series from the 454 impalas.

The Dirty Mary Crazy Larry Charger sounded pretty good. The Nash Bridges cuda was too much blub blub blub exhaust low rpm sound.

I'm searching the net for stuff and found a supercar compilation on YouTube, some I like and some i don't. I don't like it when a car sounds too much like a motorcycle. I don't care for loud obnoxious exhaust without accompanying engine sound. The newer corvettes sound like NASCAR inside the car at speed and rpm.

I had a 69 Cadillac that I would turn the air cleaner lid upside down giving it more air. When you floored it and the 4 barrel kicked in it sounded like it was going eat small animals.
