    lol, I think I'll start introducing mine as 'My First Wife" and see what happens (you'll know what happened if you hear any ambulance sirens). My first wife and I have been married 44 years.

    I'm sure you're itching to get Big Red back out...the nice weather is just around the corner, today in northern IL it was sunny and mid 40s!

    Can't believe exactly 1 year ago I shot this video. She's changed a lot since then...first thing out of storage soon will be to replace those glass packs.

    Not sure yet Bob, I like a little rumble...But, those dual glass packs are too much noise say at 55 mph.

    Dynomax Super Turbos are one option that would give a rumble without drone, though the 14`` body mufflers may be too teen-ish for you, but they are available with a 20`` body.

    Accurate exhaust makes the Magnum muffler, which could also be nice.

    That´s just my 2 cents.

    Maybe an H-pipe dual setup, they can surely create a system to suit your needs?

    Big Red looks great in that setting...but it sounds like you might need to put it away tonight! How much snow are they anticipating up your way?

    Is it just the angle of the pic or is the Imp longer than your truck Doc?

    I have to shoehorn them both into their separate garage stalls. But, Big Rig is longer than Big Red by over a foot.
