Default any one know what the black tube is for?

Hi I was trying to find exactly what the black thing attached to passenger window is? I can't find the right name. I saw it also on some 50s car driving by too.

Thanks, learning something new everyday. I got a bit confused when 2 cars with them cruising past me at like 25mph and were very loud, I thought it was some sound maker at first
