I contribute to the ozone holes by cutting off any catalytic convertors and running leaded race gas at the track. I'm always glad to do my part!

Ah, yes. I still remember my first car. It was a 1970 Chevy Impala 2 door. It slept 15 in the trunk comfortably and got 20 gallons to the mile. Oh, yeh...it had no exhaust system. Just a pair of pipes coming off the headers that sprouted from the 327.
