Well I took BigBenzMans advise and got a used tranny from Atlanta-Stuttgart and had it put in. I drove the car for the first time today and it drove really good! It has great power and the tranny shifts awesome! I have a lot left to do on it. The pass. door is still smashed in and the A/C does not work but I will take my time and get it back to prime condition. I have a used door coming from Atlanta-Stuttgart coming in a few days and it is even Teal green like I need! One question- What is the typical RPM at a steady 70mph cruise in one of these things??? It seemed a little high strung today. Thanks!
