Money cannot buy happiness, however I'd rather cry in a 427 Pontiac 2+2 than on a bus!

About 10 miles of road testing and now the downshifts are great. I wonder if the synchronizers were just dry from the trans being apart? You'd never know it had downshifting issues.

My wife watched the video and said "Where's the big smile?!" I told her I was smiling inside during the video but I really was smiling, LOTS. I am SO happy with how it drives. It feels very very natural, like it was built with the 4 speed.

I luv the sound of a four speed on a Monday morning! It is the right way to start your day!

I had to listen to this again as it sounded so good. I agree with your wife, there should be a big smile!!

you got to like a 283 four speed. three on the tree is ok but that floor shift four speed just looks right. I bet a better driving experience .

Anything that happens where you are NOT is all good.

You are right Ian, it is a completely improved car to drive, and I loved driving it before.

I so badly wish this was a radio delete car. I've don't think I've even turned it on. The radio would have been long gone except for the hole in the front fender where the antenna is.

Nope, not gonna happen in this car, sorry. I didn't in my 427 Grande Parisenne either. But I made up for it in my 66 Nova SS!
