Where is that whistling noise coming from?

Anybody else hear a whistling noise coming from up front somewhere when driving about 45 mph with the top down. I'm not sure if it is just wind blowing on something, or something in the engine compartment. It isn't a constant noise. Seems to come and go. And of course, doesn't go long enough to figure out where it is coming from. And it is tough climbing on top of the hood while driving down the road and still being able to steer (just joking).

Have you tried seeing what settings your air flow is on?
like 'refresh'? inside or outside vents? etc?

can someone drive with you to listen?

I was hoping to hear if other people were hearing anything.
