So just kidding, its not a snake, but I do hear a funny ticking or hissing sound under the car right under where the driver sits. I hear it primarily when I am accelerating or even at constant speed. Usually when I let off the gas, it stops a second or two later. Another sound analogy might be that it sounds like a wire brush is scaping metal.

I would like to get this thing taken care of since it is very annoying. Any ideas is greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Burt

Ticking makes me think it's an exaust leak.
Check to see how tight your bolts are.

Also could be the driveshaft rubbing on something, but I think that would be all the time you're moving. Might be clutch/flywheel/transmission related.

do you have a 5 speed? if so, does it happen when you push the clutch in? again, if so, have your master slave cylandar checked for the clutch. had a friend who had the same sound, it goes away but if not taken care of, can be bad for the clutch.

I have a 94 Cobra with only 60k and it does the same thing. It doesn't do it when I push in the clutch, so I've come to the conclusion that it's the throwout bearing. In all the mustangs that I've been in if I listen hard enough with no background noise(music) I'm able to hear the throwout bearing a little. I replaced the throwout bearing 3 times in my 86 and all the throwout bearing made noise. A couple of them chirped while others made a tiny grinding noise. Wouldn't worry about it too much.

Dude we have mechanical clutches. I bet it's an exhaust leak from the header to hpipe connection.
