LMAO!!......? you'll have to refresh my memory but the only thing i can remember was my steering wheel made a noise when i turned...took it to dealer and they said it was normal in the winter for it to do that..just where the plastic would shrink a lil, and made a tighter fit for clock spring and what not..lol

Icon14 GLAD ya made it back..................

Looks GOOD Josh............ya gonna put a few more miles on it this year when the K-town meet comes around????? I know it's a BIG change from the Shortbus, but your still in the family!

I've gotta 95 sittin here that I'm gonna do a what I consider major change, but that info will wait till I get goin on it, doubt it'll be done this year.... too many irons in the fire. I have put a NEW radiator support in it & the interior has been gutted except for the dash.

Wish ya was closer man, I'd give ya a hand when needed..........

PM me if curiousity get to ya on my 95 & I'll tell ya my plans....
