I remember on my friend's Nova, the torque converter failed once, and right before this, it wouldn't shift out of 1st at all. As he had a few miles of a 55mph road to travel before getting into town, this made driving interesting. It was quite a car. The steering wheel fell off when the car was sitting in a parking lot (luckily), the headlights worked intermittently, and the horn would only work when the car was off.
He replaced this in 1997, with a 1990 Caravan, one of those odd sport models with the body cladding and wheels, etc. The tranny failed on this car 48 hours after he bought it, literally. The dealer fixed it.
I don't remember if my Galaxie had a C4 or a C6...but I guess both were solid enough units. I did little more than 0-30 sprints

The 410...I forgot about that one. Was it used a lot in Mercurys?
