              Well, where do you think I got the idea of it?

              Zwack, the raw pipes might look better to you, but those tips do sound much better to me - it has a nice powerful rumble at idle and low rpms, gets real loud when I get on it (perfect for annoying other drivers when passing them), and when I step off the gas it gives out that awesome powerful "grrr", I absolutely love it

              83tc, what's wrong - the tips, the whole exhaust setup, or the overall look of the car? As I've said before I'm going for hot-rod looks, if I wanted a lowrider I'd work on a '70s Grand Marquis tudor, and I'm not really fond of the donk-styled vehicles anyways. Of course I can keep it all original-looking, but I'm and negineering major and that's just no fun

                    Sleeper status... I'd love to get my hands on a '91 Townie, supercharge the engine, drop some badass 4R75W-based wide-ratio AOD in it, and build an adjustable suspension so I can switch between "sporty" and "cruiser" settings with the push of a button - talk about a sleeper

                      You do know that water is gonna collect in those, both from rain and from the water in the exhaust system right?

                        Nope, no water problem - they have small drain holes in the lowest part of the pipes, all tips of that design that I've seen have them for that reason.

                            ivan-id say use those tips, but dump behind the rear wheels and flip em to point down...the car is the shiznit, but you need an exploded muppet on your dash like me, lol, slap on some 235/60/15 in front, some 255/50/15 out back, grab some rattle can touch up paint close to the original blue and paint the white front to match a little better, and your good, im diggin the scoop mang, i just bought the same one....keep at it, your doin some cool shit

                              Nah, dumps behind the rear wheels aren't my thing, now everybody and their mom has them, and they also look kinda goofy to me - it's either where they are now, or all the way back, and I think I'm gonna keep 'em as is. The rear tires are 255/60-15 and are not getting changed any time soon, the front though will get some 235/60-15 or 255/50-15 (haven't decided yet) once I figure out why my camber goes to hell when I put in reverse (wheels sit like that "|- -|" when going forward, and like that "/- -\" when in reverse) and take care of that issue.

                              The exploded muppet thing is not exactly for me, all that fur won't really match the bucket seats I have in there - something velvetish will be good though, especilly if I find good seat covers in the same style - maybe some leopard skin stuff? How is that muppet-thing held to your dashpad, is it glued on it?

                              Paint... front stays the same, I like the way it looks with the header panel white, rust will be removed to the best of my abilities, scoop stays black, bottom of the sides of the car gets sprayed with black bedliner, and that's about it. May not be the prettiest thing out there, but it will be functional and will have some kind of style to it
