A Paul Cangialosi has been working on transmissions for more than 30 years. To say he knows a thing or 2 about transmissions would be beyond understatement. When Paul stopped by the shop to help rebuild the T5 that will be going into my 1979 Fairmont, he asked if I'd like to hear more about the history of the transmission. Of course I said yes and you now have this video covering the history of the longest running manual transmission ever.
