If your dumbass would have turned the heater on (clearly you don't have a/c) you could have cleared up your windshield.

I have a/c..it rules. I also clean the inside of my windows with rain-x

That is pretty badass, looks clean enough to potentially be a 7K mile car.

that's what i was thinking, the interior was flawless and the brakes were rusted to hell so might have been sitting a while, it did fail emissions...

dude. i already told you.

When TDC the right mark aligns with TDC, the left mark aligns with 10°. Therefore, if running and 10° advanced, the left mark will be at 20° and the right mark at 10°

Technically your 95 should only have one timing mark on the pulley...an easy way to determine exact which mark to use is: pulling the spark plug on #1, dropping in your dipstick and turning the crank until you reach top dead center, then look at the crank pulley and use the mark that aligns with TDC.

I saw an add in the local paper for a GNX for $70K. Looked exactly like that car.

When I was in college I went to look at a GN that was listed for $4k. Turned out to be a Regal with black paint, possibly a home spray job.

I forgot to add the listing, ha ha. I was asking what they are worth because it doesn't look like a $70K car. Actually, I meant to ask, because re-reading I see that I didn't ask in the first place.

only 547 were made, ever, and in only one production year, 1987. This one was number 22.
