I am searching for a pair of Thrush side pipes to mount on my 1980 El Camino so i would definitely be interested in knowing if he still has them and would be intereted in selling them.
: Yeah I remember those, in fact.
: Back in about 75 I bought a set of these for my step dad thinking he wanted a set. Turns out he didn't and believe it or not he still has them, in the box never mounted. I also bought him the installation kit which he has never used. Lately I've been telling him he should put them on Ebay. I know they haven't made them in a LONG time, and suppose they may be worth quite a bit in new condition. SO far he hasn't put them on there, so they are still up for grabs. What do you suppose they are worth? Make a reasonable offer and I will pass it on!
: BTW: These are the longer of the two types made as I recall.
: Oh yeah. I'm located in Oregon.
