So what are you gonna do with the column shift? Swap the column with one from a floor shift model? Or hack the shifter off and fill the column with something? It'd be quite odd if you just kept that shifter there.

You gonna get a "5-speed" badge also? That would look pretty cool under the Taurus logo on the decklid.

This will clear a lot of hurdles when it comes to modifying americasfuture's car since he won't be losing so much through the transmission, and besides, if he breaks his engine, it is much cheaper to fix too
