Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm wondering why my headers on my 64 impala
are red hot....actually RED HOT!  Motor is a 400
small block. It runs and starts every time. Starts
to pop a little bit when warmed up. Nothing to
bad some flame out open headers once in
awhile. Normal?.... Any one have any ideas? I'm
kinda concerned!
