John you beat me to the post!
Spoke to my dad a few hours after you left and he is sad that its going but happy that its going to someone who will probably baby it even better than he could. I still would argue your plans to convert it to a 6 speed just so that the car stays "correct" and in its "as ordered" state. But man o man if you do it, will it ever be a monster....watch out! :-)
Cheers to a future friendship also!!!
See you on Tuesday.
