Good luck to you! You'll get one with either the eprom removed for the odometer setting and you'll have to put your old one in, or you'll get one with high mileage anyways like this one that has 187,000+ http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BONNEVILLE-INSTRUMENT-CLUSTER-PONTIAC-1994-SPEEDOMETER_W0QQitemZ360166892371QQcmdZViewItemQQp tZMotors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories?hash=item53db 9ea353&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245&_trkparms=65%3A12|39% 3A1|72%3A1171

Get yourself some black electrical tape and cover it up, just go by months for your servicing

I for one think you should be proud of her running well for so long, thats a record if shes still on the original motor or trans lol, love her for what she is, not how old shes become

is she still runs like a champ brag about the miles, youll put a honda to shame on multiple levels with that alone

I was thinking the same thing. At 243000 miles I feel like a proud Papa. The places we have seen, the things that we have done. Not everyone is so lucky.
