you all will be jealous at NEBF when I have control of my own gears

Fox mustangs in good shape aren't as commong - plus I didn't want that OHC BS 4.6

Fantastic - maybe where you're from...nobody wants big cars around here. I had it for sale and advertised everywhere for a month...no hits at all.

Yeah, the desire to control your own shifting, plus, its more fun to drive a standard. I'd love to have a standard in my Buick, but none are made, and it'd kinda kill it. I just wish GM made a standard avalible for the FWD 3800'*.... :( (one durable)

Brady... Like I mentioned congrats.

Why at hwy of 30mpg would anyone "feel" the need to second guess the shifiting of the transmission....seems it'* doing a good job to me. When I request more power..my auto trans responds.

However..this is about your desire to have a different situation... Congrats and hope you enjoy it.
