    Signed up at NATS in ‘13. Quikbird checked in ‘14 and I think we were 143 and 144 on the list then.

    It’s my understanding that Passon had some real problems with quality from suppliers. With their reputation the units wern’t going out without being right.

    I got a call last month . They got a credit card number and it’s here. Pics will be coming when I get it to shoppe and uncrated!:beep::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    We were originally mid 300's on the list. Still deciding on whether to send check for mine. Need to decide quick.

    I talked to Jamie at the Nats before when I got the four speed for my other car, and he was telling me about that he'd rather delay a product if there was any quality issue.He won't sell something with his name on it if it's not right.

    If I don’t break car at the Nats, a roadtrip to Woodward Dream Cruise the next week may be required.

    The last three years I used that week to recover from Tri 5 Nats with my ‘55.

    It’s sold, now I can get back to MOPAR fun big time. I can’t wait to see how mellow it’ll be on roadtrips!

    The 5 gear Tremec in the ‘55 made it tolerable. It was mandatory in it. Pretty rough!:soapbox::steering:
