      Not that hard. I've done it a few times on 911s.

      Here's an example of one I did before they were even valuable enough to worry about it:

      I had one of these in my '70 Bus. Not a big change in the mystery shifting, or throws. Looked cool, though!

      To also be fair, the manual trans in the bus was auful, too, with huge throws, mystery gating, and rubbery feel due to the shifter and clutch peddal being SO far away from the transmission. I doubt...

      Nope. Japanese tend to get rid of their cars at about 80k miles, as taxes go up and bi-annual inspections get tougher/more expensive, IIRC. You'll rarely see a car in Japan over the equivalent of 80k...

      Going small block don't use a TH400. Convert to a 2004R or even a 700R4 for the additional highway gear ratio, while retaining the short first and second gears for excellent acceleration. I'm...

      I don't like the plastidipped wheels, as it makes the color too muddy. Something like even later model Mustang wheels in silver or machined finish would be fine, like my and AKA's friend Scott's...
