That's the sound from the chambered exhaust. It has a great sound. The headlight actuators were an easy rebuild and it helped a ton to get them to come up better...

Hi jr,
Not an owner and not a "5"!!!!
But probably as close as I can get to contributing to this thread!
Maybe one of the best looking engine compartments of all time?
So maybe you'll accept it?
Happy New Year.
Regards,
Alan
