Is it possible to INEXPENSIVLY repair a (somehow) broken transmission to go just 5 to 10 mph? It will have to hold extra weight, as it is a 1999 Pontiac Grand AM SE V6, and I will be adding a upper deck and flamethrowers for Burning Man.


The top speed out in Black

The top speed out in Black Rock is 5 mph. This will be my first car project and so my first art car. Basically I'll be stripping all the fiberglass down to the frame, welding 'beams' to the sides and creating a second story. Ill also be COVERING it in lights and whatnot. With this added weight require a fully capable transmission? Im trying to avoid that $1800 transmission re-fab.
