Blue Rambler/AMC Exhaust Pipes

I have always wondered about those blue exhaust pipes that some AMCs came with.  For a while I never thought I'd see one, and one day at a show there was one on the ground by a vendor's table.  It was quite a sight! 

Last week I found myself surrounded by blue porcelain exhaust pipes. 

But I still don't know the history of them.  Were these also used on Ramblers?  Maybe ONLY Ramblers?  Why did they think porcelain covered pipes would be a good idea?  How long did they last?  When did they stop making them?

Questions questions questions...
