Try an N/A rotary with no exhaust if you like loud.

Try a stripped out Alfa GTV6 for 3000 miles after having the exhaust torn off after the header. Loud, even with earplugs in under noise-cancelling headphones.

you don't know loud until you've driven a small block 350 with open headers.

Sounds like a weed whacker from hell. Maybe not the loudest, but certainly the most painful and annoying. Old aircooled VW can be loud as **** too.

There is this guy around my area that has a 90 something Camaro. I don't know what he has done to it, but that thing is ******* LOUD under full throttle. We were all parked off on the side of Woodward and he went by WOT, I had to cover my ears because it hurt.

During the Woodward dream cruise everyone takes their exhaust off, some LOUD cars there.

Mr Moneybags couldn't afford the FM set up. But they are the best, end of story, because he says so. And he knows too.
