This car is too quiet and the exhaust is leaking everywhere so I decided to take care of that problem once and for all.

2-1/4" Purple Hornies Glassback. I'm normally a Cherry bomb man but I think they went out of business.

I must of spend tow and a half hours trying to remove this damn muffler. How I don't know but the Previous owner managed to get a muffler that is 2" od that is supposed to slide inside a 2-1/4" pipe on the outside of the 2-1/4" pipe the damn thing was on there good.

At first I was trying to salvage a small section of the tail pipe so that I could dump the exhaust just behind the axle.

But it was way too far gone to do that.

I finally got pissed off enough to whip out the sawzall chop of the pipe and stick the muffler on there. I made a little dump pipe with an elbow off the old tail pipe. I will eventually get this to a muffler shop and get a tail pipe made up to dump just in front of the axle and get a proper exhaust hanger on there.
