Hot dang...got a new member from my neck of the woods Welcome to the chapter Jimmy, my father-in-law lives on Broadway south of the post office there in town.
Straight pipes are alright for a little while, but then they get on your nerves and the nerves of your neighbors (in my case). When I first got my Ranchero, it had Cherry Bombs on it. I asked my neighbor one day if it was waking them up in the mornings (I went it at 0600)...he said no, but commented that he knew when I was leaving for work. I took that as a hint that he'd be happy if the cruck got a little quieter. Of course I say all this, and used to drive a straight pipe T800 with a C12 under the hood. It wasn't the biggest motor out there...but it sure sounded like it.
