Factory SS exhaust tips

My wife has asked me to install the factory style SS exhaust tips on our '66 GTO. I'd appreciate it if someone who has them on your car could post a picture. I'd like to see what they look like installed before I spend the $65 with Ames for the pair. Thanks!

Thank you Integrity6987. Those pictures answer my questions. Our car has an aftermarket exhaust with turn down exhaust pipes, so using these SS tips wouldn't work. $65 saved.

Wow sorry but that exhaust looks horrible hanging that low,

IMHO Extensions only look good if your tailpipe is tucked up along the frame rail otherwise the tips stick straight out and look incorrect, thus holding water/condensation within the tips rolled edge.

I wasn't happy with mine until I adjusted my tail pipe to keep it very close to the bumper with a slight drop/angle to simulate the factory look within most of the literature.
In reality it's somewhat safe to say that no two cars with be exactly the same, but I'm pleased.
