Not to offend anyone here, but i'm sure any "Import Tuning" shop could provide you with flames.
BTW, i'm new to list.

You're exactly right. It was common practice in the 50's to do that. Put a spark plug (or other device of the sort) in the tailpipe, mounted through a small hole in the side. Then wire it to a switch in the car you can hit while driving. The spark ignites the remnants in the exhaust gases and spits a little flame. Nice trick. Oh yea.. if you actually do this crazy shit and blow up your car, or the poor sap behind you - don't come calling me. ;-)
PS Terry2, welcome :)
