Hi All, In the bnext week or so Im going to have my twin system extended from exiting just in front of rear wheels, to the back of the car. Im undecided as to weather to have two pipes exit straight from the rear under the bumpers, or other options. Can anyone post some pics of your locations to help me decide. I have googled, and not much came up. Thanks

If it is a wagon, it should come out behind the tires, and to the side. I am one that doesn't see anything attractive in exhaust pipes, so I like them turned out to the sides just before the rear of the car, and tucked up out of sight.

Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

From the '61 shop manual:

It's a 'cartoon' type depiction. The exhaust pipe exit behind the rear wheels is not as far back as it appears. The assembly manual is more accurate.

Some like the look of straight out the back, but depending on the car's stance and slope of driveway/roadway, caution should be exercised to make sure one does not create a 'bottoming' of the tips.

I personally like the GM way.

I agree, the General got it right. Out the back looks dopey to me.

I originally wanted the pipes coming out back. I ended up dumping just behind the wheels. I remember there was issues with taking them straight out back anyhow.

I'm partial to the factory set up exiting behind the rear wheels.

IMHO.
I think the straight out the back
are more old school, street corner garage.
AND
It looks cool when the secondaries kick in.
"Color Me Gone" etc.

Hi Carl,
Does your '62 have resonators as well?
My '62 has a stock GM setup but with resonators.
John
The '59 has a similar setup.

Hi John, my 62 has the Magnaflow glass pack mufflers (13145) and no other resonators. It's straight through to the tail pipes after the mufflers.

Cheers, Carl.
