Oh that is too funny!  Did you listen to the sounds of drag strip racing?  I don't know, if I would listen, but hey people buy and listen to the sound of rain falling and the likes, so why not.  I do like the cover of the album.  Wonder how much this would run to buy, might make a good gift for that certain individual.  I mean really my husband would probably love it or might think, I lost my  mind for a minute.

Nope, haven't had a chance to listen to it yet.  The friend who owns the record lives over 4 hours from me, but I hope to visit them in the next few weeks!

Well until then, you can go to youtube and check some out.  I would post a link, but not sure, if that is acceptable. But not a big deal to search for it easily enough, lol.  Anyways, I went and listened to some engines.  Was kind of fun to listen to the various sounds!  I was, actually, hoping someone had listed the above track in your initial post.  Would like to hear the older sounds of the engines to compare.

I was talking about this specific record.  I went to look to see ,if anyone had uploaded a copy of it.  Well, nobody had, so I entertained myself listening to some others.  As I am sure, you are aware, the sounds of engines recorded with older recording equipments sounds different using today's technology.

Oh, thanks for the link on the Cuda. The anticipation of that power built as he backed it up each time to get ready to take off was exhilarating, to say the least. Talk about some power in a engine. Never been to a drag race, one of my uncles is a serious hot rod fan, he swears, I need to go to at least one event in my lifetime!
