You saw my car about 2 years ago and the clock has always worked and keeps excellent time.

But there are several other parts with a history for failure that I would like some feedback on.

I still have the original Angle drive and it has been very reliably but will probably break tommorow now that I mention it. I have never lubricated it (Since 1985 - If it ain't broke why fix it!)! I know some of us have replaced this thing many times! Any ideas whY?? The only speedometer problem I've ever had was while replacing the front springs/shocks I broke the fitting off the original lower Speedo cable, otherwise my whole system from the gauge to the wheel would be original after 50K miles and 24 years!

Also I just now after 24 years need to replace the original struts for my Bonnet and Louvers! I'd say that is superior longevity!  Anyone else still looking at original struts??
