I believe the sound of the Datsun 240 climbing from turn one to the
keyhole at MidOhio in high gear may be one of the loudest I've heard... 
The grade makes for extra strain, and since the thing is spinning up
around 7-8k RPM, the inline six really sends out a resonance that
travels for miles...  Very cool though :)
