    Dino, great to see a picture of our car we’ve never seen before after 30+
    years!
    I remember the nut cases waving!
    I gotta story…my brother and I put a set of Ramchargers headers on a
    friends’ (Walt Ballew of Cornwall NY at the time, if anyone here knew or
    knows him) ;63 max wedge three speed stick Plymouth. I think our Dad was
    flat-towing our max wedge to the track that sunday, but don’t remember that
    detail today. Anyway, the Ramchargers’ headers had no flange on them to
    connect them to mufflers, so my brother and I raided the garbage can at home
    and got two empty green giant bean cans, and clamped them on the headers
    with large radiator hose clamps and off to Dover we went. Trouble was, about
    every twenty minutes, the can would burn through; and we’d have open
    headers. So we’d whip into some gas station, buy a can of oil, and in front
    of th egas station guy, dump out the oil, cut out the bottom of the can, and
    clamp it on and off we’d go, leaving them with a very puzzled look on their
    faces. I might add, back then we did literally just dump the oil on the
    ground. The further along we
    got, the less time the cans would last; ended up driving the last twenty
    minutes with open tubes again. That thing was LOUD! (But never as fast as
    our own max wedge!)
