Removing mufflers?

Got a 96 Tbird with the v8 and what appears to be three cats uder the car and mufflers out the rear end. How will the car sound if I remove mufflers and put in straight pipe in their place? Will it sound like crap, red neck or decently cool sounding?

You'll love it at first but it will quickly wear as the drone inside will become unbearable.

when i did that for a few dyas til i went to the exhaust shop it didnt drone to bad until you where either between 2k and 1500 rpm the freeway wasn't bad to be honest. if you want good sound go larger diameter piping an x orh pipe some high flow cats and some good mufflers like delta 40's
