There's nothing like the husky growl of an automobile engine. Of course to some people its just noise.
But what if cars were quiet? That's right .... we'd complain they were too quiet. Then we'd have to fix that.

Noiseways. Listen to New York City and Portland Oregon.
"The negative effects of noise—stress and the disruption of work, sleep, learning and other activities—are well established by scientific research. And of course it comes as no surprise that there is a lot of noise in New York City. The Noiseways Project intends to complement this knowledge by letting visitors to this Internet site experience the effects of noise through the use of pictures and sound recordings. Instead of presenting data, Noiseways engages the senses."
