I suggested that, and I got a definite "NO". I even offered to let him use my Rossler if he could find an adapter & converter, but that is definitely off the table. He said if anything, he might consider a 5 speed sometime down the road.
Ok, I get it, the young man likes to shift. (I do too). Nothin wrong with that. I allways used to have 4 or 5 speeds. (they didn't have 6 yet)
Used to say: "with a stick you DRIVE the car - with an automatic, you RIDE in the car."

( say Pro, did ya see my new sig yet?? )
GOTCHA !!! :P :P

That's a goodun' Zap. :lol: :lol:


Maybe he'll go with a Jerico or Nash someday.

That's wish list stuff at this point though.

nash transes are long gone and so is the owner and they where junk back when he supplied them to GM . look into a liberty TKO with the face gearing . its like the dog /face gearing they use in racing motorcycles , not a clutchless , but more of a oversized synchro .

I think it's a pretty safe bet he won't be looking at any trans changes for a good long time. There's nothing out there in his budget for now.

the sheetmetal was the weak link . Gary I think you can make a good one for him , just make it out of moly , triangulate it and stress relieve the weld joints .
