You need the correct hat. A flat bill just won't work, this ain't no Subaru.

Can you really call it a land yacht if the driver isn't wearing some sort of glorious  captain's hat?

I got some vintage pinstripe tape in this year's GRM box, get me a decent close up pic of it and I'll see if some of it matches

The stuff I have is gold instead of brown and not the same width. Sorry!

Somewhere, there's a black car that needs that and a matching firechicken on the hood.

The steering started getting even more disconnected feeling and I figured something was up- the old track bar was basically falling apart so I stuck a Moog replacement in there:

While it was up I put a louder muffler on it because I am a child and I can't own a big v8 without hearing it:

It's still remarkably quiet, thanks to 30ft of exhaust tubing and an ancient catalyst.  The steering is so much better now.

I would expect no less than a louder exhaust from you. 

I didn't realize these things used a box and track bar setup. yech.

Spotted today.  Silver car, silver duct tape endcaps. 

It's a diesel too.

You putting a louder muffler on your road trip car is not making my desires for cutouts on my DD any better.....

You can barely hear the thing, the sound is coming from like 30ft away when you're sitting up front.

Fellow barge enthusiast here, this thing rules. 

Some stuff I've carried in mine on roadtrips have been v-belts in case one whips off at speed, spare plug wire incase one happens to get toasted, points/rotor, coil. Yours looks like it has HEI so if you wanted to be real nuts you could bring an extra ignition control module, I think those fail on occasion. 

Otherwise just bring nothing and wing it, it'll probably be fine.
