Why change the trans? The offer for the trans/misc parts can't be worth putting an auto in it. You'll get closer to your asking price with the 5-speed, don't you think?

BTW, TTT for a gorgeous car!

man- a 5speed is fun-but i do way more cruising/car shows than hot rodding + my wife can have better control of driving it when/if she drives it.
