Jordan, being that we have a sunny weekend coming up, I'm researching just
that topic. It isn't staying in the garage that's for sure. We had a bit of rivalry
going on for quite a while, you and I, so your support over that time has been
really valuable! Thanks.

Regards,
Steve

Thanks for the kind comments guys. All being well, the car will be on display
at the Joyland Diner in Great Yarmouth tomorrow, from about midday. There
may also be a blue Raider to keep it company. The event is the East Coast
Pirate's regular Sunday meet, so plenty of alternative but not all American
metal on display too. Come and say Hi!

Regards,
Steve

Looks ace.

My first GTT, also a tungy, used to jump out of 5th as well.

Mine only did it when you backed off in 5th then when you went for the loud pedal again it jumped out, although if you held it tightly in fifth it would stay in. I just chucked a used gearbox on it and it was sorted.
