Re: Still sober

Craig, love your post every year, keep the streak going.

Re: Reds headers & Brockman exhaust

I'm using Red's headers on my 8ba with very cheap 24" weld on mufflers off auction site and love the sound. Right now exhaust ends just in front of rear end. I'll eventually run on out the back.
