    Not a problem.
    Especially when we might be graced by the grand old racedepartment master of the historix group

    I don't want to dissent but when you typed Howston did you make an accidental typo and actually meant
    "Historic Open Wheel Challenge -> Spark F3 1973".

    ...cause those Howston's are a pile of. They don't deserve a H gate shifter as 4 on tree is what they probably had. Those things should only be raced in an L.A. drain in a bad movie, not at a Historic race track.

    Ha ha, one of my favourite cars in rF2. I too am out late on Saturday evening, but for this, I will make a special effort not to get too drunk.... I'm meant to be doing some work whilst I'm there. :cautious:
    OK, sign me up please, I'll have a bucket next to my rig. :sick:

    Yeh Wiki says something about the gearbox used on models with automatic transmission... suggesting, perhaps, that there was indeed a manual transmission model(s)? I think @JeffL told me that he once owned a Maverick?

    Shows what you know Ash..... :poop: . You got the bull by the balls actually :roflmao:. The first tag was a version Tony produced, trying to modify the second one because it is such a long version but for some reason it won’t work. The second FUNCTIONING one was actually my original. :D:D:D
    So now you will all endure the super long version every time.:laugh::laugh:

    They had both manual and auto, most came with straight 6 and 4 on the floor, no air/cond and an AM radio.

    Thanks Jeff, that's a relief. Most of the pics and vids I can find show auto gearboxes. I'm guessing that you had to wind the windows down by hand, whilst steering with the loud pedal?
