So... cartilage damage in my left knee... looks like autos from here on out I guess.

Which means I either will be converting my 98 with a MVB and a nice stall which is fine because that will actually make the car faster in the 1/4 than it is now or just sell it and start looking for a 2004 Mach auto or maybe a really nice 2004 GT auto if I can find one that isn't beat to hell. I've kind of always wanted a vert... Probably would start looking again next year if I sold my 98. Kind of up in the air, not sure exactly which way to go... Probably looking at $1200ish to get a 4R in good shape with a Silverfox RMVB, B&M Pro-Ratchet and a stock Mach 1 TC in there.

Not exactly sure sure which way to go yet... I bet I could get a clean 04 GT auto for the price of selling my 98 and factoring in the auto conversion... Might be leaning in that direction...

I'm sorry to hear that Scotty. I broke my knee 30yrs ago on a motorcycle and it has never been the same. I like the Mach idea. There was a low mileage auto at the local Ford dealer that I was eyeballing a while back but they wanted, what I considered, a lot of money for it. Good luck with whatever you decide to do...

I tore the cartilage in my left knee also but I had surgery to have it fixed. Are you not able to have it fixed?

I had MCL surgery last March to fix my knee, and now I am in great shape. I was only off work for a week.

Its not enough to require surgery, its just enough to be sometimes painful. Will probably do some physical therapy and see where it goes from there. I was already on the fence about going to an auto for the stang anyway, this just makes my decision for me. Will save money on the front suspension lol. Upr front is perfect for drag and $1100 less than MM.
