The boffins at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu have devised a range of audio greetings cards featuring the engine sounds from twenty-one vehicles in their collection.
Each card features a high quality photograph of the vehicle and details about it are printed on the back of the card. When the cards are opened they play a recording of the vehicle’s engine sound. Many of these recording were made especially for these cards. Although twenty-one vehicles are available, here at OilySmudges, we’re particularly interested in the motorcycles that they’ve chosen to include.
