MangeMD, nice ride, do you have anymore pics? maybe some close-ups? what's the ground clearance on those babies? if your selling the sides, i'll take take them off yer hands, are you going to spring Carlisle?
I ran "Micky Thompson Show Tubes" on my 68 back in the 70's. I thought it looked cool. Allot of fried legs from the chicks gettin in & out of the car. These were the fake chrome header type w/only one tube running exhaust into muffler tube. Jeez, I just ran a lag bolt up through the bottom of the rocker w/ a shock mount rubber on it to try and isolate them from the body. Had to keep buying bigger lag bolts as they would pull through the sheet metal. I needed guidance!
Spames, your right, it's not an east coast thing. only out here on the southwest coast we call them "LOWRIDERS" driven by the homies, or the guys that run the old flathead T-buckets. Roger, you so right, it did look cool in the 70's along with bell bottom pants and hang ten shirts. or maybe in the early 80's on a trans-am as long as you had the open shirt with the gold chains and HI-KARATE aftershave.Kevin, those are the good looking type of sidepipes.
My Dad had a 69 Vette 350 4 speed convert in Brick red with a black top and the Stainless inserts in the gills. Ran mostly OEM stock with the exception of chrome Hooker sidemounts. Nothing sounds better than that IMHO. Loud and powerful sound that can not be duplicated with smaller pipes. I would buy a Vette again just to have that sound at my disposal.
Those are sidepipe covers from a late 60's big block Vette. The purpose of the covers was to keep you from burning your legs on the exhaust pipes. Those same pipes were installed on some '69 Baldwin-Motion Camaros.
