Just bought the car, got it home yesterday. I have a steep garage driveway incline, my new '71 Camaro's header to pipes thick flange is hitting just before car levels off into garage. šŸ¤¬ my son helped me by putting wood just before rear tires to give it lift I needed. I might need to build wooden ramps every time I move the car. Having a Crest to go over and center bottom your car is a harder problem to figure out than a curb to driveway problem.šŸ¤” I only found one photo of a guy who built a wooden ramp, (photo attached), any other suggestions welcome!

Have u rotated the flanges on the headers so a flat is exposed to the road surface instead of a bolt hole? I know its not much, but every little bit helps.

Have the bolt flange changed out to a slip fit with tabs and a spring on each side or two overlapping tabs with a bolt that runs vertical with one on each side.

My exhaust system is quite extensive, hate to have to have it modified and lose cutouts etc. But those BB headers hook up lower than I would like.

Considering different types of rubber humps also may be a solution, but I need more than 2-3 inch lift and one with length to drive on, not just a short speed bump hump.
