    I am trying to find a set of zoomie headers for a 70 to 73 camaro or I would settle for just the pipes that come out under the fender and turn up like a funny car if anything like that is made. Anybody got any sugestions.

    The Zoomie headers you are referring to are for tube chassis cars with plenty of room up front. I don't know of any headers to simulate the Zoomies. I'm going to follow this tread to see what turns up.

    The closest you may come up with are a set of Hooker side pipes (not sure where you might find them) that used to be popular on Camaros and then have someone fab up a "reverse collector" that splits the collector into 4 pipes. This may turn out to be especially dumb looking and may even make opening the doors impossible.

    Other than that, throw out the inner fenders, buy some tubing and start bending and welding.

    The Hooker sidepipes may be a good basis for this. I believe they had separate tubes until they exited the undercar area and then the tubes went into the collector. If you were careful, you could hack off the collector and graft on separate tubes in a zoomie pattern.

    Pay Motion Clone to build you a set. Check out page 23 of his build thread and the killer set he fabbed. Those things are awesome.
