    Best way to avoid being a Buick widow...

    Get your own! Just ask my wife; that's her GS in this video. I get to drive it now and then since I do the work on it - I suppose I'm a Buick widower. What a great day in the PA mountains!

    Wife shows -0- interest in old cars or even driving mine. Cannot get her to make a pass with me in the Regal. 17 Yr old Daughter on the other hand is a chip off the old block and loves going Fast n Loud!

    cool, but the music drowns out most of the 455's exhaust note "music"! The video started with a nice sounding exhaust note but once under way there was no "road music" :puzzled:

    Smokey15 So old that I use AARP bolts.

    My wife is into cars and actually enjoys working on her (& our) cars in the shop.

    Yeah my wife too has zero interest except for the occasional time I take her for a drive.
    She drove my previous 72 once, but that was only to steer it while I pushed it into the garage
    And she never drove the current car as an automatic, and never will as a manual.
    But with that said, she's supportive of the hobby, never complains, just makes fun of all the mail (parts) that comes for me.

    Oh, I agree with you 100%. The main reason I added music was because the wind noise was so annoying above 30 mph. I've been experimenting with different microphone placements to try to eliminate the wind noise while still being able to hear the engine and exhaust. In that particular video, I had an external microphone attached to the passenger side visor and it picked up lots of road rumble. I even looked into using a band-pass filter on the audio track to get rid of the rumble, but then it also removes much of the engine/exhaust music that I love. I have samples with the mic under the hood, in the trunk, in the car's interior and on the outside of the car. I'm going to keep trying until I figure out a good location and combination of shields for the mic. It's a tough job, but someone has to do it. :Brow:
