I misread the original email. I agree with Dave, waiting for a converted car
for sale may be dutile. There aren't that many to start with, and those are
mostly in the hands of enthusiasts, so prying them from their fingers won't
be easy. I know mine won't be for sale any time soon.

It's a big project but a relatively fun one. If you aren't equipped to do it
yourself, find a shop you can work with to co-opt the job and do the parts
you can. Or if you're so inclined farm the whole thing out(I gave you a
contact yesterday) and sit back and let someone else do it.

Good luck, and hopefully we can say welcome ot the club real soon.
