Saves all that pesky work getting the exhaust system back underneath to the rear of the car!Probably needs a periscope though. Gotta admire the tenacity

And that, children, is why you should finish school.
And just say no to drugs.

Or as Chevy Chase said "If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn't be more surprised than I am right now".

I'm probably getting the last names wrong, but wasn't either Dennis McIntire or Chuck Wigel from Aiken SC?

I do love the spats!

Rob, I can see why you thought of those two gents. They both installed their Ford exhaust manifolds swapped side-for-side and thus directing waste forward. Chuck Wiegle went further with his backwards theme, by putting a radiator in the trunk. He is indeed from somewhere in South Caroline, but I think Dennis McIntyre is/was from near Toronto.
