Yeah the way people's heads spun around as I approached, accelerating up urban hills, was pretty amusing. It's a 1984 900 S hatchback, kind of scruffy looking, brown with a Thule roof rack. It looks like an urban assault vehicle and unmuffled it sounds like one too. People would stop in their tracks and put their fingers in their ears, or furrow their brows, shake their heads...I was a real nuisance. Of course I kept my windows open, I didn't want to get asphixiated after all, and I reveled in the din I was causing. The novelty quickly wore off though and I had it fixed. My entire neighborhood is grateful! -jw
