Do you drive your Camaro with

your radio on or off??
I prefer to drive with my radio off windows slightly open and listen to the engine roar.
The radio just kills the fun of driving a 5gen Camaro IMHO.

My car is loud enough to hear with the radio as high as it will go.

This thread makes me wonder what's louder, my sound system cranked all the way up or my full SW exhaust at WOT.

Guess I'll find out tomorrow!

With long tubes and a already obnoxiously loud exhaust I normally just listen to that but 50/50 with the radio

I rarely ever drive any car without my ipod playing. I listen to a ton of music and most of it is done when driving. Once in a while I'll leave it off to hear the engine but that usually only lasts about 5 minutes, then i'm over it.

What color hat do you prefer on your lawn gnome to best compliment the color of your Camaro in your driveway?

When executing the perfect Rockford, do you prefer to continue on with your forward momemtum and drive away or do you like to step out and bow for the crowd?

Do you prefer to drive with your top up or down when out in the rain?... sorry, wrong section for this question.

There are always Camaro related discussions to bring up. I'm about 70/30 on this topic. I usually have the radio on, but on those beautiful summer days, it is nice to hear the Dual Mode exhaust purring.

I have to drive with the radio on all the time because I can not stand the sound of the fuel injectors noise. Drive me nuts!
