OBD-II starts in 1996. The OBD-II port is under the dash on the driver side. Your 95 should have a port behind the engine on the passenger side.

It's right next to the Positive jumping connector in the engine bay, at the right side of the coolant expansion tank. Oh and in the older cars is really a called a diagnostics port.
