Sentence: I watched as the Pontiac Grand Prix, Grand Am, Trans Am and GTO rolled down the Main Street of my sleepy little town. Odell had come alive with the reverbermate sounds of bass, pumping out the essence of male strut. The reverbermation became louder as they passed me by. I felt the sidewalk vibrate a bit and suddenly, the caravan eased down the street in their quest for .... dare we name it romance?

Great sentence with a great question! Loud and obnoxious might attract attention, but it takes soft and tender as fuel for romance!
