The music depends on which roadster and the type of road (and if my wife is in the car). Casual slow cruise with the top down and spouse copilot in the 67 with whitewalls (car doesn't have an aggressive look):

"Midnight Rider" - Allman Brothers
"America" - Sister Golden Hair
"Lonely Boy" - Andrew Gold
"Reminiscing" - Little River Band
"On the Road Again" - Canned Heat

Driving without the wife in the other roadster (no side trim...more aggressive stance and tire/rim combo):

"Train" - Blackfoot
"Twilight Zone" - Golden Earing
"Chapter Four" - Avenged Sevenfold
"Green Onions" - Blues Brothers Band...speaking of them The theme to Peter Gun by the Blues Brothers or covered by the Art of Noise is just plain cool as your weaving in and out of traffic.

For flat out crazy driving try any death metal like Cradle of Filth or Rigor Mortis...you could probably drive off a cliff listening to it and you'd keep your foot on the gas through the entire fall.

311 Grassroots is a great album.

I like their more recent stuff alright, but really like the older stuff.

Headpins! - Turn it LOUD!!
(or almost anything else by the Headpins)

Trooper - Boys in the Bright White Sports Car
(Some old lady called the cops, said the car was probably stolen.....)

AC/DC - Highway to Hell
- Girls Got Rythm
- Dirty Deeds
- Thunderstruck

Depeche Mode - Touch Faith

The Cult - Sanctuary

Santana - Smooth

They have to be played loud, and most of these would probably result in a speeding / dangerous driving ticket........... :D

This time of year, around Halloween, there's an easy choice:
"Time Warp" Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack

Best heard while driving and in costume.

Music? If you can hear music, then 1) you are driving too slow, 2) your exhaust is too quiet or 3) you are just pulling back into your neighborhood and you need to turn everything down a notch so that your neighbor the cop won't bust you...

I don't know how to work the radio in the "daily driver" and the other does not have a radio. LOL
Just the music of my FJ running through a turbo muffler.
