-- Worth mentioning that the Opel Diplomats 1966/1967 were also equipped with the Powerglide — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:28, 7 March 2012 (UTC)


The main article for Powerglide states they were discontinued by 1973, their last application being the Vega. I have an all original 1973 Chevrolet Nova, with a factory-installed Powerglide.

  • Oppose. Nothing to disambiguate. Andrewa (talk) 11:10, 17 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose Not another one! No reason given for the proposal. Skinsmoke (talk) 16:55, 17 July 2010 (UTC)
  • See All pages with a title containing powerglide. (talk) 17:53, 17 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose. I almost speedy closed this but the "See all pages" thing might be this editor of questionable competence's attempt at a rationale so we might as well let the snowball finish melting. The Chevrolet Powerglide is definitely the primary topic here, it shouldn't be moved. --Sable232 (talk) 00:56, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
    • Comment: I almost proposed a bulk speedy close, but thought better of it, and suspect I'm not the only one. But we're all learners here. No change of vote. Andrewa (talk) 08:00, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose. The Chev Powerglide is the primary article, and the other articles are positively (Corvair Powerglide) or probably (the other 2) named from the Chev 'glide. If there is a need for disambiguation, create Powerglide (disambiguation) and add a hatnote to this article, as prescribed by the manual of style for this situation where one article is so clearly the primary article. --Athol Mullen (talk) 15:21, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

Slip and Slide[edit]

There was another reason we called this transmission the "Slip and Slide Powerglide" back in the day. After many of them got about 80,000 miles on them they would have difficulty going from low to high gear. They would "slip" and "slip" and finally "slide" into high gear. You could sometimes finesse the gas pedal when this happened and help the thing shift. Sometimes the shifting action got so slow as to be almost non-existant, in which case the driver would start out in low and shift into high when the rpm's got high enough.

Reference number 1 is not a book titled Every Model, Every Year, which I could not find, but is a book called Every Model, Year by Year, which can be seen here [1].

Maybe the person who used the book firsthand can explain the error in titling the book. I have also noticed the same error on other pages, that include Plymouth Cambridge, Lincoln H-series, 1957 Ford and more, which is why I perefer not to edit it myself just yet.

  • If you are sure it is the right title for the source, fix it. That is the beauty of a wiki. If you aren't sure how to properly format the cite (which can be confusing) ping me on my talk page. This article is on my list of things to fix, but its a long list. Dennis Brown - © Join WER 01:06, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
