Does anyone have one of these laying around?

Were very popular in the early days, but were generally pretty robust so one of the wrecks around the place might be able to yield one of these.

Or can you get them new?

Any leads appreciated.

Cheers,

Craig.

double pharrrk :-(

That's what I'm after, a second hand one that's no good to anyone. Like I say, surely someone has got one on a parts car? PLEASE :-)

Thanks,

Craig.

Craig - what do they do and how do they work?  I know a lot of country boys used to run them on their HQ utes.

Are they different from a straight through muffler?

Hi Dave,

Thanks for responding.

They are more of a resonator rather than a muffler, this gives a red six a nice deep tone. If you remove the muffler and just use the hot dog the exhaust note is very deep. Simple way to make your car sound good. Well better than the original method of punching a hole in the muffler with a screwdriver anyway :-)

If you can dig a second hand one up it would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Craig.

PS: Thought of you yesterday, was behind an EH with a very hot six and dual exhaust. Sounded and smelt great. Gotta love the smell of heaps of unburnt fuel at idle.  Grin Grin

Bump. :-)

Still looking to find a second hand Hot Dog resonator.

Also looking for older style wooden steering wheel, similar in look to LC GTR type. Sort of like this picture



Prefer flat, not dished, larger size better. Something needing restoration is fine.

Also boss kit to suit FC column.

Thanks,

Craig.

Steering wheel issue solved. Went to the local Super Cheap today, free Boss kits with all new steering wheels. Bought a chrome spoked woodrim unit for $99.00, free boss kit included. Gotta be happy about that :-)

Now all I need is that bloody hot dog................


Cheers,

Craig.

I had a ripper on a car about 15 years ago, it was about 3 feet long and gave the most amazing sound at full rev Cheesy
The only ones I have seen since then are only about a foot - foot and a half long.  Has anyone else seen these really long hot dogs?

 have you tried Harry's cafe de wheels?
I heard they were selling variuos hotdogs.
Hey craig, what are they going on, or is it a secret.
I have always wanted to  do a 2.5 inch copper tailpipe with a lukey sports muffler on a grey. The police have now quit trying to get people for having the copper pipes, infact they seem to no longer even know they existed.
another exhaust alternative might be a Mr gasket cut out, just pull the cable when you want to be loud (for pedestrian safety offcourse) and push the cable when you want to be quite ( like if the cops are behind you)

Leon,

No secrets here.

The Poo Mobile is receiving a minor rework, it gets put in to the modified class everywhere it goes so I thought I might take it a little further. I got these wheels off ePay



1970's type 'Turbo' wheels 13x7, plus a wooden steering wheel, a noisy exhaust, and maybe a little supercharger. It will also maybe get a HR front end, plus lowering blocks and new (drastically) lowered front springs.

Here's what it will look like at the next Nats, if I get there ;-)




Cheers,

Craig.

wow craig, i must say, that looks shtit hot
is that photoshopped or is that for real?

as for hot dog sizes, they are still available in all lengths, and i asked our local exhaust place when we were down there, and he said every exhaust place should have them

leon

can you elaborate more on your 'mr gasket' idea (sounds good, but ive got no idea)

Darcy,

The image is definately Photoshopped (for now), just waiting on tyres. REALLY want 235 x 50 x 13, but will have to settle for 215 x 50 x 13.

It will also get some underbonnet detailing, alloy cover and sideplates, plus some other little special touches.

Cheers,

Craig

Hey craig it might be worth posting this thread on an american car based Aussie site .
Both my Camaro 73 and the ol boy's Mustang 69 had these on them (The real long ones) when we imported them and seemed to be standard possibly.
The note on a 307 and 351 werent worth telling your mates about thats for sure.
