      lol... They're green just like everywhere else; the EX/AF lock I had on my iPhone must have thrown the colours off.

      I was just testing to see a) if the EX/AF lock actually worked (just discovered that feature in iOS5), and b) whether my make-shift dashboard mount could stand up to actual driving.

      Now that I have a on both accounts, I can try other things, like actual fun/pretty drives.

      I like it alot. Except the choice of music. Next time throw in some more tailgating, police chases, hit and runs, and a drive-by

      Did you see some of the people out there? It's always an adventure.

      Glad most seem to like the song choice; I thought it fit well with the nature of the video regardless of whether you actually like Matt & Kim

      Never having been to Canada, I didn't know how much of an adventure Wal-Mart could be. Now if you lived in, say Alabama....

      That looked fun, but holy that's a loud Mazda 3, lol.

      Here's hoping for sun for the rest of the weekend so I can go hit some fun roads... After I rip off my rattly heat shield so it doesn't sound like I'm driving a blender full of rocks

      It's a crappy mic. The car is all stock engine/exhaust/intake-wise.

      I'd really like to do something like this on my motorcycle, I just need to figure out how to mount my phone in a more sophisticated way than duct taping it to the mirror... Which for some reason was the first idea that popped into my head... I don't think I'm gonna try that one.

      This is now the driving adventure thread. I added engine sounds to mine for more excitement.
