I look at it from a Darwinian POV. Lack of diversity is not good for any evolving system - too much inbreeding (positive feedback for negative traits) happens. More diverse species have a better...

That may be the speed-sensitive volume kicking in. IIRC, it can be turned off; directions should be in Owner's Manual.

I'd try some weather seal restorer first. This should cuase the seal to expand slightly and become more supple.

If that doesn't work, try adjusting the window.

Yes. The people who would be interested in buying the car 10+ years down the road will more than likely want it to be as close to factory condition as possible. No factory stripes = just another Z....

My guess is that the battery is shot.

First thing I'd do is put a VOM across the battery terminals and...

If what Rusty and wanker mentioned is not the problem, try bedding the brakes. It's not uncommon for new pads or rotors to squeal due to oils, etc, that get on them during manufacturing.

My guesses:
1) Bad u-joint(s)
2) Bad wheel bearing(s). Beacuse load makes a difference, I would suspect the rear.

But could also be a diff or trans issue. Either internal or, as mentioned above,...

The block is ruined but you should be able to salvage any parts that weren't mangled in the mishap. Ie, heads, manifolds, VVEL. Keep 'em or sell 'em.

Worth a try. The ECM will lose some tuning data and you'll have to drive around for a while until it relearns. You may have to do a window reset and the presets on the radio again.

You can buy kits with an assortment of clips. One of the standard sizes will probably work.
