I know a lot of R&D goes into the voice of a car and people love it when they sound tough or just loud.
I even hear the new electric Harleys are trying to work this out and make those loud too (or maybe they have by now). "Loud pipes save lives" and all that.

I think my favorite sounding car is probably a Tesla.

I recently got a questionnaire for my Toyota Camry, otherwise not exactly known as a sports car, though they do have a 3.0 SE version, with a question that surprised me: would I like to hear, inside the cabin, a sound mimicking the outside exhaust pipes sound? Really!? Why would I want to have that!? I adore the peace and quiet in today's modern cars, inside the cabin. Music sounds fabulously, and the only sounds are the tires hitting the asphalt.

I also do not understand people's obsession with muscle and sport cars. It is illegal to drive them at speeds they are design for on regular roads, and even if you could, it is dangerous. They are difficult to get in and get out, and usually rather spartan inside. What's the point? A nanosecond rush of adrenalin?

I much prefer the sound of my Prius, especially when it is in Electric mode.   ;)

Alas you and many of us here , including me, are not young any longer...that's why!

Being older than many, I'd still love a muscle car of the old school. Trouble is, here, even if I could afford them, those cars are just too big for the local environment; it's hard finding a spot for my Fiesta. As for winding down into the local supermarket's subterranean parking bays, most of any long machine would be left on the sides of the tunnel. Even the lottery wouldn't fix that.

That's called being young at head, Rob.

I miss both my 250cc BMW bike and my 1956 Porsche Carrera from the last century.
But I don't need that kind of fix any more. The memories are good enough.

Memories are decidely not good enough in my view; I want the read deal today, whatever it may have been or imagined to have been.

Regarding pictures, I know so much more today than I knew a few years ago, principally because I now know so much more about myself, a knowledge bank that would be ripe for the mining had I still a ticket and a shovel. Why is it that the better you become at something and the more potential that you have, the fewer the opportunies seem to become? I have observed this sad phenomenon in the writings/video interviews of several of my photographic heroes who might have been thought to have had unlimited access to fame, fortune but perhaps not fulfilment.

I remember, with great fondness, the exhaust twitter of a BSA Gold Star.

Indeed, and what they usually don't tell you as they sell you that spiritual sunshine is that you can eventually, and easily, find yourself with actinic keratosis of the mind.

Did Bob Carlos Clarke spend too much of his time in the gloom, instead?

As I say, so many imponderables...
