Agree with you! I had a complete dual exhaust with glass packs from manifolds back put on my 57 today. Total price, $324.75 out the door, including new chrome tips.

Good Guy. Quoted me 180 for complete dual exhaust, 24" glass packs, and chrome tips. I gave him 200. Don't get any better for me. Lloyd :bowtier:
Mufflers are close but not exactly parallel, but sound great and are beautiful to me. :congrats::shakehands:

FOOD!

Not too long ago I had a crew of 4 of us doing some field work in central Nebraska. We went to lunch at a small town bar and got the daily special. Cheeseburger, fries and a soft drink. The bill came and I thought it was for one of us, $12. Wrong! It was for the whole table.

Do you mind telling who did your exhaust? I got an estimate in Weatherford and it was much more. I would drive another 30 miles to Granbury for a bargain.
