Think of top down. A lot louder without a roof.

To answer your inquiry directly... definitely 69 Chevelle.

How cool would it be to build your own mufflers? Hmm... lot of potential joy and bragging rights up for grabs there.

This is a good site. Sound clips are always helpful.

My wife is averse to loud exhaust and complained about the 2 trips we took a few years ago. Before we came down to Pigeon Forge, I put these mufflers on, after reading hundreds of reviews for different styles of exhaust and they are quieter than what was on the '38. I still ended up wrapping the entire system with exhaust wrap from oil pan to tips, to contain the noise inside the pipes and that helped too. It will still bark quite nicely under throttle but does settle down at highway speed.

Great idea David. It is hard to compare my cast manifolds and stock cam to most of those though.

I will listen to a few more tonight.

Hey Too Many Projects,

I hear you on the wife factor. I had to change the muffler on my MGA because of the "noise" and I think I am the ONLY guy riding a Harley with stock exhaust.

Hmmmm.... I'm going to be a bad influence here, but when you bring the Screamin' Eagle mufflers home from the dealer in HD carton's, that qualifies as "stock"...
And yes, she complains about them too, but I can't hear her over the noise...

Lord, I miss the bike......... That was one thing Barb liked as well as Imdid. She was always ready for a bike ride.

AAMOF. When we met, she was a blind date to go bike riding on my 1963 Norton Dominator SS.

I'm closing in on 72 and weaving in and out of gas stations and such at slow speed with two up is becoming a daunting task. Although we both still love to ride, this may well be my last year. Notice the stock pipes.

I did an interesting little project today. While disassembling my top irons for the convertible I broke all but two of the little 8-32 studs that were spot welded to the stainless weatherstrip retainers.

I was able to drill out the broken studs but leave the collar that was spot welded. Then, I tapped the hole and screwed in new stainless studs I ordered from McMasters Carr.






Then I just zapped them with the mig on the hottest setting it has.



It worked really well and I now have a complete set of retainers with good studs.





One other small project today. My Oatmeal pie is in the oven.
