Hotrods are not considerably quieter than stick-shift cars, contrary to popular belief. This article debunks the common misconception that hotrods are substantially quieter than manual transmission vehicles. While some hotrods may be equipped with modern features that reduce noise levels, the overall noise produced by hotrods is still significant. Stick-shift cars, on the other hand, generate a similar amount of noise or even less, depending on the engine and exhaust system. Therefore, the notion that hotrods are significantly quieter than stick-shift cars is inaccurate.
