pushbotton shifters

Anyone have any knowledge or experiance with these pushbotton shifters? I saw one at the Riddler show this weekend. I wonder about their durability and how hard they are to install. I know they are $$$.
Let me know

Don't know if this is the one you're talking about but Chrysler, Dodge, Plymouth and DeSoto used a push button torqueflight from the mid 50's to the mid 60's. No rocket science and it worked very well.

Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.

pushbotton shifters

Thanks guys for the quick responses.. I remember the ole Chrysler pusbotton well. However, like Crosley says Im interested in the new type pushbotton shifters that Barry's Speed shop advertizes. I went to the Riddler car show last weekend and saw a couple of them but no one was around to answer questions about them.
Anyone know how hard they are to install? What kind of durability do they have?
