Gas pedal???

Would it be fairly simple to have a hanging gas pedal setup insted of the pedal going down to the floor.??? My problem is that my car has seen 13 winters out of its 15 years and the gas pedal has detached from the floor.

I'm sure there was a thread on this exact subject a while ago. Maybe it was in the General section. The answer is yes you can but can't you replace it with a racing one or is the floor comlpetely fked.

I jimmied mine up pretty good and it works well too. I cut the pedal in half, and then sunk a screw in the top to keep it together where it swings. I thought it was a great idea untill i put it back on and it just sunk limp and was unusalble. So i found a small spring, hooked it around the head of the screw and then around the arm or the lever. It works great. You can take that little sopper out of the floor to.
