My two cents -- the car is almost 20 years old. You may not find exactly what 
you are looking for. You may be lucky to find any glass at all. There's also the 
issue of with or without the imbedded antenna; I know that upped the price on mine.

I'd call around to some of the major auto glass places to hear what they have to 
say. Having had to replace the WS on Bad Puppy, it is amazing what a difference 
new glass makes on the driving experience, especially in the snow belt where 
sand and salt pock mark a daily driver.

Good luck. Let us know what you find.
