Possibly dating myself here.. They are classic. Remember the ones on the original Cobra? Ron


What are "lake pipes" in the lyric, "And she purrs like a kitten 'till the lake pipes roar" in the song Little Deuce Coupe by The Beach Boys?

Lake Pipes are (or were) an aftermarket chrome exterior exhaust system made by Lake maufacturing in the 50's and 60's. Commonly called "Side Pipes"

Lake Exhaust Pipes


Hooker Headers Universal Sidemounts - JEGS

Lake pipes were also available with a cut off, One position sent exhaust through the mufflers and out tail pipes, other position sent exhaust through straight lake pies, very loud.

There was a guy on Jeepsunlimited last year who was trying to build a set of combo sliders and sidepipes. Never saw if he was successful or not in the end.
