I'll agree with the Lisk Dodge, The Silver Bullet, and the Roush-built Mustang, but please don't start throwing Dobbertin's cars or Matt Hays' Ciera in the mix. Not that Dobbertin's cars weren't highly detailed and shined like an uncirculated penny; and not the Hays' Ciera wasn't an over-the-top build of a then-new car, but in my opinion, those builds started what turned into "Pro Fairground" and barely ran on eight cylinders much less ran close to eight seconds. All the chrome, candy paints and tweed interiors did was spawn a generation of slow and overcarbed money-pits that sold magazines.

Back to the original post,it would seem that a Lenco would be more driveable on the street that a traditional 4 speed that was made clutchless using face plated gears. Most nightmare stories of clutchless transmissions on the street were probably from people trying to run face plated stick transmissions rather than Lencos. Without going into the specifics of what a face plated trans is I will just say that they were impossible to keep in gear because every time you let off the gas the trans popped out of gear and they weren't truly synchonized transmissions so they took skill to downshift.
