Hey guys; I called Doug Thorley and they don't do pipes any more. I love that style. Any suggestions or referrals on that style of side pipes for my 74' G10 Shorty ? chevy

As far as I have been able to find, only company making production side pipes these days is Patriot. I too would love to have some variety in our choice of pipes, but the market doesn't seem to be there for it these days. Thorley and Thrush used to make several. I'm planning on having a custom set built when the time comes for the Queen Anne's Revenge.

I don't remember where I saw it; they did custom side pipes using Big Rig Stacks. I can only imagine the cost: $$$$$

The side pipes are 63" inches ! The Worst !

If you got it, go onto Facebook and search through the marketplace. A lot of things are popping up for sale at great prices. It is way better than Craigslist.


You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave

Learn something new every day. Did a little online reading during my last coffee break and it appears Patriot exhaust and Thorley are one in the same now. Apparently Doug started "Headers by Doug" by Doug in the late 50s, eventually it changed to "Doug Thorley", then after a divorce where his wife gained the business, he started "Doug's Headers" which was bought out by Pertronix in 2005. So in a long round about way, they're what has evolved of the old company now. Attached image snatched from the Pertronix website.

"Elementary kursed" ....."Elementary". Good detective work. I'm at work and can't access most websites. I would assume they have different lengths.
