Hoping to see a boat tail on the civic and 50mpg+
All 1996 through circa 2003~2004 are OBD2. Starting around 1982 through 1994 are collectively called OBD1 though there was no standard at all.

Many 1994 and most 1995 vehicles have different systems, often they cannot be communicated with using the same tools as 1993 and older.

Some people call them OBD1.5 because they're a mishmash of old and new. Some even use the OBD2 common connector but not OBD2 codes or communication protocols.

1994 and 1995 General Motors can be especially difficult. I just looked up what vehicles Innova's OBD1 scanners work with and there are a lot of 94 and 95 GMs they don't support.

I'm wondering if there is still such a thing as a meter to read throttle position , might be useful on older cars.

I was on the way to Rockler for xmas presents when a guy pulled in behind me and caught me walking to the store. He was very interested in the Probe and we had an extended conversation about it. I recommended he do an air dam and aero topper for his C/K but he said he doesn't care about fuel economy. Haha

Filled up... put 10 gallons in. That was too much because it smells like gas again. Screw these partial tanks. Ren's springs need to arrive already!

I am going to look at this car, if it just needs a head gasket. The spare set of saturn 15 inch wheels will fit.

Possibly. It has a 4A-FE 1.6L 16 valve dual over head cam engine that has 13 more Hp than the Saturn 1.9L SoHC engine with the same bore but shorter stroke. It's a high revving engine with appropriate low gearing.

I told a buddy about your car to try to help you move it but hes unsure.

Just a wild thought but have you thought of contacting a movie production company (likely out of state though) to see if they'd be interested in it?
