Default Re: Any major problems...?

I have just done the tranny ($4500) and the brakes ($350-parts only) Need to do the TB belt soon. The car is running extremely well. I discovered the early transmissions were very prone to problems and as the years passed there were more and more improvements in the transmissions. I was told there were 27 improvements from my original tranny to the one I have in the car today. One thing I noticed is that the infamous "hunting" is gone.

I purchased the car 1 year ago at 162,000 miles for $9,000. (A grand or two high in hindsight) But hey, what is a grand or two in the big picture. Felt good at the time and who would have guessed the tranny was going to go.
