I am the proud owner of a 1973 Ford Caddillac Scorpion DCE (Dual Cab Emission). Recently I have been having issues with moving it from 1st to 3rd gear. It makes an extremely loud clicking noise that unfortunately ruptured my 4 yeard old son’s ear drums which according to the doctor will make him both deaf and impotent for the rest of his life.
I’ve tried new spark plugs and engine parts but the sound still remains which lead to the death of my newborn daughter. My wife has left me. She thinks I love my car more than my children.
How do I fix my stick shift? I really want to take this baby out on the town. Chicks dig Caddy’s.

Stick Shift Stewart,
It sounds like you may need a new stick shift. I don’t know why you looked at the engine and spark plugs as they have nothing to do with the stick shift.
Caddillac no longer makes stickies for that model (what a sweet model she is) but you can find parts on the internet.
This should get your car back up and running just in time for the fall foliage.
