    If you're standing on the salt, it sure looks curved. Same with a boat on the ocean. Or a beach on the coast. Or a spaceship.

    Our part of the world IS flat. Chris Columbus was WRONG!

    Maybe it depends on where you're standing.

    It's why my car weighs in like a few elephants are driving

    I saw the trucker "public" scale was open in Lund last week when I drove by, I'm thinking of driving the Firebird out there to weight it in.

    I don't need the cutouts, since I take it all off for racing (weight savings as well as lower restriction)

    Stock replacement mufflers is a great idea if you want quiet, with cut outs in front of them for racing.

    Truck mufflers were quite often "round body" larger diameter than a cherry bomb or other glass pack - but still not too hard to package, just longer than a typical car muffler or turbo muffler oval case affair.

    My 91 truck has a Y pipe then a single round body muffler, unfortunately I think it's only 2.25"... a bit small for a 351.

    Climate change has changed the acoustic qualities of air to the point that whisper quiet exhaust is no longer possible.

    Seriously.

    Just the other day I started up a car of mine the has sat for 20 years.....it used to be whisper quiet, now it sounds like a derby car. Blat, blat.

    Proof definitive.

    Can you actually get quiet quiet mufflers these days? I'm considering putting a cut out on the Firebird and silencing the engine exhaust completely. My first Firebird had all stock exhaust and it was whisper quiet going down the road.

    I'm thinking stock replacement mid 60s full size car mufflers.

    Interesting - have you looked at any Jones exhaust? They have some nice looking stuff, haven't heard any mufflers in person though, they are made in U.S.A. They have a small case oval muffler that will work on my falcon, reasonably priced too. Cherry bombs as I recall (Mom says I have expensive ears) are cool, for about a week, then they just become too loud, sort of like flowmasters... except they are never cool! IMHO.

    I'm going to change my mufflers, if that's any indication!
