Whistle or howl?

The moment my car hits 120 (yea yea, i know i shouldnt go that fast) an amazingly loud either whistle from the windows or a howl from the wheels starts. It also happens on and off at about 60 and up as well, but not nearly as loud. Im not sure if it is a metallic howl sound or a whistle sound from air being forced through something. Anyone else have this problem?

most people that have heard the noise you are describing have discovered it came from the mirors, and air rushing over them. that is why speed limits are on the low side....usually UNDER 90mph.....
