    I can understand that.

    You know what they say:
    Practice makes perfect!

    The video isn’t all that great and the audio isn’t much better. It’s my first attempt at posting a video.

    Petty cool car, love the sound. Its cool when a car sounds like it is going fast, even when its not. Its funny when old people yell at you to slow down even though you are doing 25mph in first gear, I love pissing certain houses/people. off, makes my day lmao. U got the best of both worlds in that wagon.

    The shaking and 'wind' noise: is it just the way you had the camera mounted, or does the wagon actually do that? And it's too bad other drivers have to get in your way; you could've smoked the Tahoe yahoo. BTW, what bridge and highway were you on?

    Haha! I think you said my slow car sounds fast! Lol! I am thinking about going the quiet route soon. It is awesome to surprise people but... I’m old.

    Your first question... a little of both! The camera was mounted on the passenger side rear window which was partially open... because the window motor needs a gear. Also yes the car isn’t butter smooth. If I can get rid of the door and window rattles and squeaks I can live with the very awesome sporty ride and suspension. There is still suspenson travel. I love this car. I love this ride.

    OK. The bridge construction looked like the Ship Canal bridge here in Seattle, but yours is faaaarrrr longer!

    I almost forgot to ask: with the 351, and the GT-40 induction, what's your hood clearance like?

    Hood clearance?... I don’t have any. I dented it with hammer and slammed it shut.
