I'm looking for the original wide mouth tail pipe that was on the '88 & '89 Cavalier z24. Might have been on others but not sure. I may have a pic of it as well. Thanks for the help

A while back someone said they had a connection with someone that could make reproductions of these tips. I don't think they ever came through though, but it is possible I missed it, if they did.

You might try a search to find the thread.

are you looking for "original part / recreation of original part" or "something that looks good" ? I can't help with original part, but I found a couple tailpipes that I think look as good (or even better) than the original if you're interested...

I attached a pic showing what I went with -- it's a dual round tip with a slight angled edge. There are a couple more shots of it here: http://imgur.com/a/GSN2B

This dual-round tip is located at https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000E43BCQ/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I also found a dual-square and a single-square tip that might be of interest. The single-square tip is sorta-close to the original:

dual square: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003U6NH88/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1JEOX4NSSK24O&coliid=I2KLT4XINCWMZB

Single square: https://www.amazon.com/Gibson-500366-Polished-Stainless-Exhaust/dp/B000CMDD0K/ref=pd_sbs_263_3?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B000CMDD0K&pd_rd_r=T1SSWZVM28SFF2YJ0DKV&pd_rd_w=1HHhZ&pd_rd_wg=zReDg&psc=1&refRID=T1SSWZVM28SFF2YJ0DKV

Ideally i would rather go with original .... i like the single look and black. the chrome single one doesn't look that bad and as a last resort i could go with that one. Thanks jokerswild for your input and suggestions.

I did a quick search on amazon and it looks like that single rectangular one comes in black too: https://www.amazon.com/Gibson-500366-B-Elite-Exhaust-Tip/dp/B00BHD1J1I/ref=sr_1_51?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1487211834&sr=1-51&keywords=tail+pipe+tips+black

again, it's definitely not the original - but it's readily available and might be close enough for ya. I was researching them last year when I replaced mine and I didn't find any original ones either (but admittedly I didn't look REAL hard either!)

what's weird is the chrome one I linked to was the 500366 and the black one is the 500366-B (same model number, just the -B at the end) but the chrome one has an offset connector and the black one looks centered ?? Might want to keep an eye on that and make sure your muffler lines up properly...

I thought you sold your convertible last fall -- did you pick up something new? Or decide to keep it?? If I remember from the pictures, that was a pretty sweet ride.....

so..... now I'm really confused. You have no ride but you're looking for an exhaust tip?

Buy the tip first and work your way forward? what's next, search for the luggage rack?? by the time you're done, you'll get a 3500 and end up with a full car!

heh that's kinda awesome. I'm diggin ya man

Funny how that works!!! Wait...bought a few square hub caps also...ended up needing one for that one i sold....Mic drop!!!
