As I’m sure every car enthusiast has this happen to them. You’re in the middle of a conversation or doing something when you suddenly hear a roaring engine in the distance coming towards you. It could be a bike or it could be a car. A true enthusiast would be able to tell which and even more so the brand and model of the vehicle.
This is a characteristic of a true automotive enthusiast as some times this happens to me. My office sits right on the FDR in Lower Manhattan where I sit at my desk and hear screaming sport bikes and roaring sports cars heading North up the FDR along the East River. Some times I hear sirens and I pray that it’s not coming after the roaring/screaming engines.
