and the tranny starts to go--unless it's a passion it doesn't make financial sense to save many of the older cars. I loved/hated my GenIII but I was not going to rebuild the tranny when it started slipping. Most of the rebuilds posted on here didn't last very long and I couldn't justify it. so the average non enthusiast --no way Patrick is one of the few left on this forum really asking questions and wondering about possibilities for this model. The community for GenIII's here and, I'm sure everywhere else, has really shrunk.
