    1995 5-speed Thinking about selling if the price is right

    I picked this car up in Gainesville, FL about 9 years ago and drove it back to Connecticut. I've put about 50k on it. It's now at 146k. As much as I love driving her at 62 my left leg sometimes cramps up and no long wants to cooperate with the clutch. I've tried to keep her in good running shape...

    hope everyone is ok out east???

    I'm a little East of Hartford, CT and I'm happy to report we got nothing but rain, no destruction! Further south near the shore there was flooding, and in the North Western Hills a lot of heavy snow took down some trees which took out some homes and personal property.

    Recommended UCA

    So I didn't think it made a difference but my car is a 95. The squeaking ones were Moog. The guy that does my work has 40 years experience and he did say every once in a while Moog does get a bad batch. If this continues I'll suggest to my tech use the ACDELCO. Doing some research here's what...

    95 headlight bypass.
