Noticed that when I put it in park, the car may drift back about 3 or 4 FEET. Then today it was drifting back and you could hear a cog in the trans trying to engage. Had to put it in drive and then back into park. This all occured in a fairly level garage.
Does this sound like major work? Any hints?

Welcome to M&M
Your parking paw is worn out. A fairly common occurance in early C-4's.
You can try adjusting the shift linkage to get some play out, but the paw mechanism needs to be replaced to cure it completly.
