Re: Got noise?
I hear ya on the "oldschool" Jakes...man some of those were loud, I remember an old Western Star dump truck used to go by my folks place, and rattle the dishes in the cubboard when he hit the jake...LOL. They were much worse when the the particular truck was running straight pipes, or dual stacks. I've got several buddies that drive big trucks, and I know of a couple guys who purposely beat all the baffles out of their mufflers to give them more of a rattle when they hit the engine brake, good ol redneck fun.
My wife and I just moved to a quiet private lane in November last year, but prior to that we were on a main road, and got to hear stereos, glasspacks, and all the Civic speed racers all night long, I don't miss that one bit. Later.
