Default Test Drove a Comp G.... Wow

I test drove a '04 Grand Prix GTP w/ the competition group... it goes 30,000... might have to buy it lol. It was like my old bonny with a swift kick in the rear, really something else. If anyone wants to know anything about it shoot me a message.

Push button shifting? You mean the steering wheel thingy? Or are they trying to resurrect the push button tranny selector from the 60'* or 70'*?

Just for the record you can add a push button deal to your stock 4t60-e or 4t65-e.

Also try driving the new 2004 Bonneville.

the push button shifter thingy was neat, more of a novelty than anything else. It kinda threw me off though use i like to use one hand on the wheel and shift 1-2-D-OD on the console (oh, how many 4T60'* I've killed with that manuver ) so driving with both hands 10 and 2 is definately not natural for me

Chrysler Corp. in the late 50'*, 60'* had the pushbutton auto transmissions. I think was termed Select-matic or something to that affect.

Ty, I am a little afraid to ask, but curiosity is getting the best of me. How much to do this to our trannies?
