I'd go 97. And it would be interesting because I justttttttt took out my perfect 97 radio.

but a new HU is pretty quick and easy.

The 97' is indestructable. Remember a dirty engine bay is a engine bay that doesn't get touched. That means the car never needs repair work. That alternator is OEM.

Remember a clean engine runs cooler, since it'* not insulated in so much crap.
I bought mine dirty and cleaned it...can't stand it that way.

like other said, go with the 97. CD players are cheap to get (<$100) and the trunk issue shouldn't be all that hard, and you can probably use Bill'* parts source to get the parts for that. Looking at the 94, for $205, which is what it was at when i looked, it might not be too bad of a deal, but you'd have to put more money into it it appears. The 97 you can drive as is.
