What are they for? Are they a good investment? Give me the run down. Yes, I am a rookie!

A cool transmission is your friend.
A cooler is a good investment on any trans, but becomes most important on a trans with a higher stall converter because of the extra heat generated.

RON,

Where would you mount the tranny cooler on my 65 fastback I am going to install one, I would like to mount it where I have fairly easy access, but it is well hidden. I know I am asking alot, but that is why you get the big bucks

I have two, both B&M Super Coolers.
On two different cars of course. Don't hide your cooler, put it in the airflow.

My trans cooler has three coils,it's 7" by 12" and mounted in front of the radiator. Really doesn't look that good there but I think I get the best results being mounted there.

Put mine in the upper left corner of my '69. Fabbed a couple brackets and it looks like it belongs there. Used -6 steel braided hose from the tranny to the cooler.

I put my automatic trans coolers on a table at the swap meet!As long as I have 2 legs, I really see no reason to have such things.

Transmission coolers aren't really needed, sure the Winston Cup guys use them ,but unless you are running flat out for hundreds of miles a manual tranny just doesn't need one.
Slushboxes can use 'em, but who'd have one of those?
