I have seen a few 6 speeds, but those were new FW's. Did you do yours yourself? :cool:

I wanna drive it....Looks like a fun car. Is the 350 worked up?

I bid on that car when it was on eBay. It has a 350 with upgraded intake, headers, exhaust.

It didn't look like it would make a good daily driver, or else it would be in my garage by now.

sure... on a bunch of CTSs...

I'm too old for manuals these days... they were "cool" when I was younger and are ok on purely "fun" cars (the CJ we're redoing has a man.), but not so much on daily drivers...

What can I say, I like my land-barges with a good ol' slushbox.

To each his own I suppose... it is a nifty mod though.

Well that sure is neat. Needs a center console though.

That kicks ass! The shifter is so wrong though, it looks like it needs some Viagra!
(as I learned on a truck I prefer a long-throw shifter with the "mushroom" head common to large trucks, believe it or not.) But I've seen plenty of 5-speed Cadillacs; a few Fleetwoods, a few Cimarrons, and loads and loads of CTSs.

Ditto on the console....Maybe something fabricated using an Impala SS (94-96) console as the base.

Ummm .. yeah. :cool2:



and here (http://impalass.uniquekind.net/) is the rest of the story !!

No console IMHO; that car just wasn't supposed to have one.
