Goodness knows what the transmission is (but again the original equipment whether manual or automatic is almost certain to have been better.
But perhaps worst of all is what having a heavy iron block (as opposed to an alloy one) will do for the superb handling.
Yes you should have bought a Corvette, fine in a line, and that's about it.
Perhaps it might be better to describe this as Detroit junk with BMW coachwork...
