    Which V8 sounds the best?

    Gonna start an argument now...as engines go, I'm into Chevy V8s. HOWEVER, whenever I hear a Ford V8 or Hemi V8 they always sound much nicer, with a deeper more distinct rumble! Can anyone explain to me why or is it just my imagination? Has anyone got a chevy that actually sounds awsome?

    Have a listen to this baby. Found it while trawling youtube.

    Notice about 2 mins into the clip when the guy switches from methanol to Nitro.

    Oh Yes !!
