They are required to use the horn at every crossing (in WA anyway)
even if the crossing has lights, bells and boom gates. People still
get run over.

Yeah,..Al's due for his antipsychotic,....but you have a good point,..I love
the sound of a loud Ford V8, and if I could get away with it, I run open
pipes on it (when I had it),..the difference is, people love the sound of a
V8 as opposed to a Harley twin POS.
Wank zone ahead>> The FMX trans on the 351c was slow to do any control input
change,...this leant itself to do all sorts of things,..like back to
neutral,..raise the revs slightly and notch it seamlessly into 2nd (from
Drive), then back off and get that lovely "pop, pop, crackle" breakfast
cereal sound :-) As much as hate what Ford are doing here with the Falcon,
(4 cyl Falcon??!!)..they doooo know how to make a lovely V8 sound.
