    I Love your car! I have the perfect mate for it. Man they'd look so good together. Mine's a Vintage Red Premier with white landau top, the white low side trim to compliment your high side trim, and white and red inteior.

    I haven't had that out in years but I love it and really ,, your blue!!! Glad you got your springs and stance sorted. Just one thing if you don't mind me adding. I'd keep the air shocks. Just my personal experience, but with a cooler, travel size propane grille, lawn chairs, a pop up, and table in the back, plus kid or kids in the back seat we could rub rear tires on some bumps in another of our Volares with exact same tire set up as yours. I figured out real fast that some extra air would save us from having ugly tires from certain situations the car would be used in.

    That is a great looking car! Of course I'm also biased when it comes to blue (1969 B5 in my case) with a white interior

    Beautiful Aspen!
    If you have headers currently on the car....keep em.
    Going back to manifolds is a step backwards.
    Just make sure the collector gaskets and flange gaskets are from Remflex.

    In my cars previous life, I had Hooker Super Comp fenderwell headers and couldn't get them to not leak for more than a day. Granted, back then header gasket choices were slim and Hooker headers have cheap, thin flanges.. Finally I used Permatex Ultra-Copper RTV and no gaskets. Put a bead around each port, bolted them on and let it cure for a week. Never leaked even the slightest amount ever again. Only downside was when I went to take them off. They were glued to the head so tight I had to use a pry bar to get them to come off and even then, it was a job and half, lol. Pretty sure I could have taken all the nuts off the studs and drove the car and, they STILL wouldn't have leaked.

    Ive had the headers on there for a couple years absolutely no leaks and yes remflex gaskets . Yes i am going backward in the fact that im looking to have a more enjoyable ride and headers are loud. i'm not a teen any more and i'm not looking to go fast .Most likly doing a cam change but one step at a time . worst part of these headers besides loud is taking them on and off , as i remember lol we had to jack the car up high and remove from the bottom . i appreciate the complements and advise . just the direction im heading. dare i look into better gas mileage too lol 2 barrels calling ?

    I have TTI headers. No leaks at first but then some later on so I put on remflex gaskets. No problems since. Love that blue BTW.
