Well i went to take a simple trip to the store tonight after a good 3 feet more of snow had dumped, very sad to see a rice rocket style subaru owner, whos ride lower to the ground than me push me out of the hole. said the good old 4x4 all wheel drive just rocks, think its time to ditch the bird. Besides im looking at a Super Sport Camaro or Turbo Charged Trans Am for my summer car, and buying a conversion van for my family, 3 kids and another due in April, plus my wife and I are 1 to many people to fit in the bird. My wife dont like to drive so right now everyone rides with me. Been fun working on this thing, sometimes, 3 heater cores, endless sensor problems and non working radiator fans wont be missed.

Well I understand you looking after your family needs and sorry you have to bail out but how does an older Camaro or T/A work any better? Old cars are just that IMO.

P.S. I could have helped you with the fan prob long ago.
Ranger clutch fan; simple automatically adjusts to temp, wont notice any power loss cheap mod.

Those turbo trans ams from the early 80s were one of the biggest pieces of junk ever produced by the automotive industry. They are SLOW... if I remember, 180 HP from a 301 ci V8.... that is a crime!!!!
