probably not do-able. The '92 has the old slant block design from the 900 and the '95 has the straight block designed for transverse installations (NG900, 9k, 9^5, 9^3). The '95 has tranny drain plug and the '92 does not. A rebuilt tranny would be the best suggestion I could make. The Aero is one GREAT car and nothing like it is made anymore. I would think it would be worth the effort and money to get it back on the road if it is in nice shape. Where are the cars located? As for the '92, a blown engine? If it is just a head gasket, it may be the least expensive to put back in order. I may be interested in one or both.
