    Great! My son did the F22 crew chief / mechanic at Elmendorf and Edwards.

    Seniors: Louder Exhaust?

    There are a number of app's for your android or iPhone that will measure DB's. I've got the android Sound Meter app. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.gamebasic.decibel&hl=en Running over roads, with performance tires, that where not paved with great asphalt, and a stock...

    Seniors: Louder Exhaust?

    Hi Kids... I know it's macho to tell the world how great loud is. But... enjoy your hearing while you can with that attitude cuz it will only be a memory if you don't care for it. Take a second... take into consideration that you can hear a bug buzz by your ear. The little hairs in your ear...

    What's Your Profession?

    It wasn't my favorite at the time :) But I would not give up the memories for anything.

    Thought I'd update the link. I ended up in a used 2016 MKZ Hybrid. Their equivalent of Ruby Red :) with 25k miles on it. Sun roof, nav, 41mpg in town, quiet and no frigging horse power :( Oh well... win some, lose some... and at this point I feel lucky to have won as many fun rides as I...

    Probably more info than you wanted to know, but... :) My feeling is the amount of noise varies by user. One of the reasons, as I understand it, is from damage done to microscopic hairs inside your ears...

    Thanks for the input. I'll make sure to have this inscribed on my head stone.

    At one point I had Falken Azenis RT's on my Miata. They were increadibly noise. Over 25mph it sounded like all the wheel bearings where gone. To a certain extent you have to give up some performance to get a quieter tire it seems.

    It started for me when I was 62. Been with me for 10 years and just bumped up in volume 11 months ago. There's no usual age that you might get it. There is no cure or relief. It is always there and you just tend to ignore it when you get busy. It's amazing how many people I've talked to...

    Regarding tires... Exactly. That's why I initially did not get the performance package with the bigger wheels. I've also got a 2004 Crossfire that I'm looking to replace 10 year old Michelins on (cars only got 46k miles). Surprised to see a European tire, Barum, show up. Made by Continental...

    I'll bet it's nice. I'd be looking at one less pricey like this, but this one doesn't have the engine I'd want: https://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/cto/d/ford-fusion-2016/6681715423.html

    Very nice. Went looking in craigslist and came up with this: 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid - $11900 ... https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lgb/cto/d/2011-lincoln-mkz-hybrid/6693313876.html Not a fan of white interiors, but an interesting vehicle to pursue. Have to check out the longevity of...

    Thanks for the input. Yeah, from what I've read you need to stay away from the 2002 and before type S's. There was a 1990 Mustang 5.0 with 60k miles and original owner for $7k in Craigslist the other day. The Mini... the accident part doesn't worry me as I've had 2 Miata's, 2 MG's, 300 ZX...

    Thanks for the input guys. I can't complain or find fault with the stock mufflers. For me it's the road noise from the tires over all but the smoothest of freeways and streets. It can be overpowering. I was on a back road going to Prescott last year. The highway was smooth but was paved...

    Yeah... I don't know. It's gotta be something not as loud. On the long list: Colorado diesel, Ram 1500, used Mini of some type (?), 2002 or so Tbird, 1990 Mustang Fox body (stock), 2007 or so Jag S type, or a Challenger. Depends on whether we move to where it snows or not too. So, with the...
