    We all hear and get the "loud pipe" quote and I have a response that it takes a minute for them to think about and at times you can actually smell smoke coming out of their ears.

    I say "blind people can't drive cars but the deaf can". Then I don't say anything else.

    Sorry. I'm usually not a grammar nazi, but it took me a while to figure if that first sentence was even written in English.

    I actually rode in a car with a blind guy driving, he was diabetic and became blind and still had an unexpired drivers license, he wanted to drive one more time, the last mile home, he actually did well considering. He was the only sober one in the car.... memories of stupidity in my younger days 35± years ago

    You're wrong. I know several legally blind people who have drivers licences and are legal to drive. They may have various restrictions (mirrors, night, etc), but they most certainly can and do drive.

    If the deaf are driving... Wouldn't you need louder pipes, loud enough to vibrate their cars? :huh

    My father, who was legally blind at the time, rode his motorcycle from Pennsylvania to the grand canyon and back. It was his last ride, he passed away several years later. His bike was a 1973 Z-1 with a Kerker header, louder than stock, bu not so loud as to save anyones life.

    But the best comeback to me is: "loud pipes cost rights."

    Just as guns are made to kill, loud pipes have only one purpose. And the worst hypocrites will say it sounds better rather than admitting it is truly to piss other people off.
