People who drive with no music and windows up are normalfags and cucks
Disagree. While I have music on more than 90% of the time, sometimes I like to have nothing playing. And as for windows up, that depends almost entirely on weather.
>To hear the engine?
In my case, pretty much. My truck had an aftermarket muffler so its exhaust is definitely noticeable. I quite like how it sounds.
You're the normie here. Listening to top 40 radio or the news while driving is the most normie-like thing you can think of. Did you ever see Takumi listen to the radio while he's racing? No? Then there's your answer.
Having engine noise and being alone lets me almost meditate. I can clear my mind and think straight. Focusing on the task of driving with no distractions is therapeutic.
I would never listen to the radio, however. For that, I have my phone. Google maps for traffic updates, and music of my choice on the phone.
Mike Ness is a musician by trade. People think it is strange there is no radio in his custom 39 ford hot rod. His response is simple, he would rather hear his warmed up flathead than radio chatter.
I'm going to take his opinion on the subject, not some teen weeb who's balls dropped last year and uses words like cuck.
>OP is a fag
>have really bad ADHD
>sensory issues, can't deal with cold air
>just want to drive in peace with no distractions and I nice warm interior
>just want to enjoy my car, my way
>get shit on by autists on /o/
I never have music on.
Radio = same songs I've heard 10000000 times that I don't like
spotify=same songs I've heard 10000000 times and do like
Sometimes I just put on a podcast or drive in silence and think.
>not blasting super eurobeat when driving hard
RUNNING IN THE 90S comes on
>mfw start pushing it to the limit
What about no radio, Windows down, and V8
NPR is leftist-progressive swill for pseudo-intellectual idiots. Anyone who thinks they are getting something a "Tier above" the mainstream media by listening to NPR is just as deluded as a fat fuck who sits down every night and turns on Bill-O
I always download a plethora of music myself and listen to that.
Usually have the windows up so it doesn't screw up my freshly fixed hair.
But by no means does someone doing something different then that make them a shitter.
Doesn't matter what they do or don't listen to, or if the winds in their hair.
Cheap way to gauge someone m8.
>usually listen to classic rock, oldies or metal
>driving female co-worker to a meeting
>she puts on her music
>blaring out super-energetic pop while she sings along
>pretend it annoys me
>secretly love it
Wish I felt secure enough to listen to that shit when I'm alone. But I do not.
Audiobooks. I grew up with both of my parents listening to books on tape in the car, so I picked up the habit myself. My favorites as a kid were Hitchhiker's Guide and the adventure books by Desmond Bagley, although nowadays I mostly listen to history books (Just finished The Sleepwalkers, 9/10 would start WWI again)
NPR is very centrist. They are probably sucking Hillary's proverbial cock right now.
And it's true I cannot listen to them. Their agenda is too fucking obvious. They are really anti-gun, for one.
They are centrist when you consider the global political landscape. The topics that they are progressive standing in a colloquial sense are enough to push them into the center-left on the US spectrum.
Now I am not a Progressive or a Neo-Conservative, neither of the parties core principals or current standings are conducive to a successful climate in the united states as the whole system has eroded down to pandering, the lowest common denominator. It has been that way for decades, but new lows have been hit in the last two decades in ways I would have never thought possible when I first became participant in the world.
I won't go further into detail here because I wanted to agree with the OP, people who drive windows up, music off are fucked in the head, I prefer windows down, vent on, music blasting preferably a gear or two high so I can hear my engine and stay in my power-band.
dude i listen to music most of the time, but sometimes you just want to die and listen to the horns blaring, and the noise of the road.
sound of tires on highway is also very nice, and desu you'd be a pleb not to take time and appreciate it every once in a while.
Well fuck, mine isn't nearly that loud. The PO put on a magnaflow 12636 (https://www.magnaflow.com/products?partNumber=12636). Not sure how to describe the sound. I'll have to record it some day.
It varies a bit here. There certainly are areas but 1) I've got a pickup now, so I have to use a little more caution around corners and 2) I don't live in a big crime area, so most of what cops do is traffic stops. Useless pigs, I tell ya.
Unless the other person also wants it loud or it was a song I was specifically mentioning to them recently, I don't blast it when I have someone else when me. My old sister likes to do this. Irritating. That shit's just rude. And it makes talking a pain in the ass.
I can't tell if I'd like this or not. I've never listened to an audiobook. Also, I feel like it would take away from the experience when I go for a midnight drive. But maybe not.
I haven't looked into this, so this is just a blanket suggestion. Uncheck duplicates before you start the download? If it's just one big folder, they should be next to each other. Unless they are in a ton of folders and hard to tell that there are duplicates. I hate that shit.
When my wife and I would take road trips, she would try and put on audio books to listen to. I never allowed that because it would have put me to sleep in record time. I'd rather have nothing on at all.
>radio is broken
>it's fucking winter
Apparently it's legal in WI - a friend lives up there and the cops say it's okay.
I always have to turn down the radio when I dagumi. Gotta focus.
This homo gets it.
My suburban has two speakers. Two 3 inch speakers in the dash, left and right, buried under 26 year old crumbling dash foam. I couldn't listen to music if I wanted to.
Plus, its more fun to listen to my single-chambers.
