When it comes to trends, the automotive community has new ones all the time. Just look back over the timeline of hot rodding and we see all sorts of different phenomenon that have come and gone. Some stick around longer than others and really make their presence felt. However, there are also trends that are gone as quick as they showed up. We barely get acquainted with them before they’re pulverized into nothingness. Perhaps, some of these trends were just too ridiculous to be taken seriously for a long period of time.

We’re not really sure what this is supposed to accomplish but apparently, it’s something that has been spotted at various car shows throughout the area.

Sure, those who have nice sounding exhaust systems are going to like for them to be heard every once a while but this just takes it to a whole new level. When we follow along with the video below, it lays out the trend. Be sure to tell us what your thoughts are on exactly what’s been going on in this corner of the truck community.
