Some really wacky but clever (not necessarily always smart) engineering.

Mainly linked since this one was described as sounding like "four Subarus in a mailbox":

that was cool. good find. i don't think the one sounded anything like 4 subarus in a mailbox. not enough grumbling.
you really should. it sounds better than two V8s having sex with a blowoff valve while a v12 tapes the whole thing.
