Auto on the column

Anyone heard of a reverse lockout for an automatic column shift? I would like to try to keep it original looking and still have the confidence of shifting without going into reverse. I was thinking about puting a B&M shifter on the floor, but I have a bench seat and dont think it will look to hot.

For the 2-3 shift on a column-shifted Turbo 350 or 400, I've always used a quick up-down kind of a slapping motion on the shift handle. Hold your thumb below the handle & your fingers above it, then slap it upward with your thumb and then down quickly with your fingers, as close to a single motion as you can. It should land in Drive. Might take a little practice, but it works for me.

Ok I will try to practice that and see how it works. Something else I was thinking about was putting an electronic shifter solenoid on it and when I go racing just push the button. However, I havent found anyone who makes that kind of solenoid to select the exact position for the trans detent. If anyone has heard of such or knows how to rig up something like this please let me know. Thanks
