  There is a fellow in our club who knew his '79 would pass the sniffer
test but would not pass the visual inspection without a cat in the
  He slipped a tomato juice can over a section of pipe, fitted flanges,
bolted his device into the system before the annual emission test, and
removed it for safekeeping and loan to friends.  The car has a header, so
this device is fitted into the system under the driver seat, in a
straight run of tailpipe.  The car is now exempt from testing because of
its age.
