Old Trans-Am racers revisited
Big, old and bold – racing just ain’t racing unless you’re in historic Trans Ams. Just remember to wear some serious ear plugs...

I wasn't sure they meant it when they invited us, but I've got no doubts now as I've just stood on the Javelin's loud pedal and my whole world has exploded. And I mean EXPLODED. I'm trying to take in what the car feels like to drive, but the noise is so ridiculously intense I'm just waiting to feel the warm trickle of blood out of my ears. Really. It was fabulously noisy at tickover outside the car, but here inside, with all the sheet metal vibrating and the sound bouncing every which way, it's like putting your head inside an oil drum and letting 10 crazed drummers go apeshit on it. I can't hear myself shout, never mind think.
