    My wife didn't care much for my addiction when I bought my 87' t-top but when my (then) 4 year old son took hold of the addiction as his own she caved in. She then convinced me to add another to the garage; a MAF converted 88' notch 5.0. She is now supportive since my son is becoming a gearhead like his Dad.

    Nice build, you've inspired me to build my notchback along with my GT t-top.

    I'll be looking into that since I'll be doing my tank upgrade. Do something while I'm there.

    much stiffer over stock stops that wobble you get in the shifter on the road when hitting bumps and stuff

    they all have some bounce to them but you dont notice on an aod because the shifter is mounted to the body of the car where as a stick the shifter is riding on whatever the trans is doing just sticking through the hole
