    Here's a few I've rat holed over the years.
    1 - An unmatched pair 26'' Hollywood Deeptones
    2 - Matched pair 26'' Douglass steelpacks from a Douglass dual kit
    3 - From the top- Kenco 24'' steelpack, 30'' Smitty, & a 36'' unknown brand steelpack
    4 & 5 - 2 of the first Walker Continentals, well before the bullet shape came out, & a chromed Fenton steelpack that was on a Fenton display rack in our local muffler shop, installed, & welded back together after the end fell out.
    6 & 7 - 3 Mitchell fiberglass, 2 in the oval shape for clearance (?) Mufflers 001.JPG Mufflers 005.JPG Mufflers 006.JPG Mufflers 007.JPG Mufflers 008.JPG Mufflers 010.JPG Mufflers 012.JPG

    I though my fetish of collecting tires and batteries was odd.

    Nice collection.
    I have an old NORS pair of the bullet shapes on the 32 but they are not straight through. They probably don't have any packing, maybe some kind of dual chambers?

    Definitely a unique collection, but kind of cool also.

    Those Douglass SS packs were the thing to have..
     
  11. In 1982 my OT Chevelle had probably the last set of true GM Corvair turbocharger mufflers.
    I worked in a Chevy dealer and my parts manager spent about a week scrounging for the pair.

    Do you have to ask the muffler shop if you can dig thru their dumpster behind the shop or do they save them for you?

    I suppose it's better than having a collection of door lock release knobs....

    An exhaustive search of my junk turned up 3 sets of headers and 3 sets of ram's horns but zero mufflers. Which is a good thing since I'm baffled most of the time as it is.

    Maybe we should "cut out" all this talk as it could resonate later and could lead to a Duel!

    Unfortunately, I have unintentionally collected quite a few pairs of Flowmaster mufflers that I have removed from cars I have bought. I can't stand them.

    I never thought about collecting mufflers. Now I know why.

    Oh hell yea, my wife thinks I keep some strange stuff but I can't match this.
    She contributed to my Budweiser Christmas mug collection for years though.

    Muffler wise :
    There may or may not be a pair of glass packs that were on my 51 Merc out in the shed if they didn't get put on something that I forgot about. Those could end up on the 48 with a cleanup and a fresh coat of header paint. Then there is that little turbo out there that will find a home on the Ranger 4x4 that my trailer hauled home the other day. That little bugger will be the parts chasing beater drive in all weather rig if someone with more money than sense doesn't fall in love with it though.
