Great song, I understand the sentiment.Two Words. Danger. Zone. (best driving song). Product of the 80's/90's what can I say.
With the right car and the right sounds, it's not actually silent, but it is desirable. Particularly, for parents that might not want to listen to children's songs repeatedly for an hour or more .So just silent car rides? If you say that you make your family listen to your exhaust for long rides then you’re a monster.
IMHO, Alpine has the best sound. agree with you there.Great song, I understand the sentiment.
I know you worked for Ferrari in the 2000s, and I'm not sure about your dentist friend's 328, does it have a radio?
However, all Ferraris, I think starting in the 70 and at least running through the early 90's Ferraris were delivered without a radio (with the exception of Boxers, which came with a special Ferrari branded Pioneer head unit with graphic equalizer). They arrived with a leather covered "blanking plate" in the dashboard, and speakers and wires, so you wouldn't have to cut the car apart if you did want a stereo. So all stereos in vintage Ferraris (except Boxers) are aftermarket pieces installed by dealers/owners, which is why you see some cars with Blaupunkt, some with Alpine, and a few with Kenwood, or Sony etc. Some people just left the blanking plate in place and never added a stereo, with the idea being the real music is created by the car.
I have my 328's blanking plate and the original Alpine single slot CD player (which was so sensitive to bumps that running over a dime or a crushed cigarette in the road could almost cause it to skip). I did put in a more modern Alpine CD player that looks reasonably close to the original one that was in the car, but this has a removable faceplate. Like all tech items, prices were so much cheaper 15 years later that it cost 20% of the price of the original head unit. Anyway, whenever I ask Ms. Dino if she wants to bring some CDs for a drive, she says,"No, I want to listen to the engine."

I may check it out...I'm thinking Mercedes, but I still cheer for Ferrari too.
I'll check it out.that Black Lives Matter livery that MB has is very sharp. McLaren drivers are outdriving their car’s capabilities which bodes well if the engineers could ever get their shit together. Although it’s sad they’re losing Sainz next year
Oh we actually have an F1 thread (that’s kind of dead though).
