Just promise all of us here you'll take more rest stops and not drive straight through like with the 453.

Ohmg I so need a smart tower! I made it home at 11:30am. I did the drive in two 7.5 hour legs with a 5 hour nap to bridge the gap. 20 hours overall and no hallucinations this time!

I have to say, I think the 450 drives better than the 451! The 6 gears and the complete lack of a creep mode are to die for! The icing on the cake is that the 450 definitely upshifts faster than my 451 and I like its engine note more too! Oh, and the shift pattern on the 450 is amazing.

Thanks again cfreidma!!! You've made my summer! <3

Plans for the car are basically to restore it to the condition in which G&K delivered it! I *might* add a personal touch of getting all the fabrics reupholstered to match those lovely panels.

Oh, and breaking my convention of guy names, this one will be named Chelsea

Congratulations! As a former 450 owner I liked the quirkiness of the car, the 451 being almost normal by comparison. It does take a little more research for troubleshooting and a lot of the answers are in a foreign language (except for Leroy) or at least a foreign dialect. Be ready to order parts well in advance. Most are only available from overseas. Enjoy, and yes, pictures please.
