I remember that picture with your daughter!! 

I need to give them a call.  Usually when I start the car I go some place.  I do like to listen to it but usually fumes up the garage lol

I am Sorry if I sound Like a FAN-BOY of this vendor, but it just based on my experiences and I fully support this product.

She is 25 Now and they grown up fast, & the Car has been in my possession since Nov 1983

Gardner has a production lead time (For Systems) like ALL supplies these days, be ready for some delay.

I think Scott is echoing the dreaded Muffler "Crimp" debate of a few years ago.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,FWIW

You could drill one very small hole on the bottom-sides of the transverse muffler to let the condensation out. 
I just installed an NOS GM (circa 1975) muffler on mine, and it had those holes.  Blows the condensation right out - but an earlier post had a good point on running the engine / going for a ride to clear the water out.

I think I read where the gardner mufflers had those holes at one time but mine did not.

Guys,
FWIW, a few back I installed a system from MagnaFlow called 'Muscle Car exhaust' on a brand X car. Its a very nice quality mandrel bent 2.5" stainless pipes with their mufflers. Fitment was good. The only issue I encountered, the tail pipes were tight on one side because of the staggered shocks. Maybe worth looking into, IF you are not interested in a 'correct' system...
Just another T/A fanatic. A new project in the works.
