Every gearhead out there loves the sound of a healthy dose of musclecar engine, whether it’s the low rumble through performance mufflers or the smooth purr of an engine that’s been finely tuned. Inside some of those cars, it might be a bit much on a lengthy cruise, the drone of the exhaust at certain rpm’s can be enough to make you want to walk for a bit to get your bearings back.
But then someone pulls up in a car with a 6-71 perched on top of their big block and the sweet sound of the belt whining on the cogs makes everyone take notice. It has to be one of the coolest sounds on a hot rod or musclecar, and it’s hard to imagine that anyone could tire of it like they do with the drone of the exhaust. Car cruises wouldn’t be the same if some knucklehead didn’t sit at the intersection winding up his blower and signalling his arrival to everyone else, and the reaction from the crowd is nothing but smiles and “hell yeah”.
Five Cars With Blowers Out Cruising
Imagine, though, if you were out cruising and you saw not just one guy with a blown musclecar making noise, but a group of five friends all out to see who could attract the most attention with their blowers. Why, you’d have a cubic displacement symphony being performed right there before your very eyes. When we came across this group of videos where these five friends all took turns before the camera and letting us in on the fun it was time to turn the volume up a little.
Included in the group is a ’72 Olds Cutlass, a ’69 Camaro, a Baldwin Motion Camaro, a ’92 Mustang LX and an ’03 Mustang GT with a Kenne Bell supercharger. The ’03 Mustang has a serpentine belt, so it’s not as impressive-sounding as the others, but we don’t mind – they all sound great! We kinda like the ’69 Camaro, which is your favorite?
