OK - I'll jump in. FIVE pages of posts so far on chrome exhaust tips! LOL

So this is personal - do what you want with YOUR Corvair.

That said, the chrome tips that slide on to stock tailpipes and are attached with a setscrew - NO. You see part of the tailpipe, the start and end of the chrome tip, and the setscrew. Very tacky. That is a pet peeve. GGG

Otherwise, turbos rock with chrome tips, and aftermarket exhaust with full chrome tailpipes can look great too.

The LM Corvair looks best when there is minimal exhaust visible hanging down under the car.

Yes yes YES flat_six!!! GM did a good job with exhaust tips. Witness the chrome extension seen on many late 60's early 70's Chevelles and Camaros.

The chrome tip that's 1/4" larger than it's tailpipe, with that nasty set screw, makes me think of someone with their pant zipper down, or shoelaces untied

How about a pair of Harley exhaust pipes? Chrome with a slant cut. They fit up nice and tight.

See what happens when you install Harley parts? You end up needing a tow.

It was a little more than just the Harley parts but that is a good one. I had an ignition issue.
