I have a MT 2500 with out back lighting or graphing and forgot whether or not all the later Snap On scanners with back lighting and color graphing allows you to graph data pids of all the later OBD1 cars (that have live data capability) or graphing isn't an option on any OBD1 stuff. I had a Solus , and forgot, don't recall trying to graph scanner data of OBD 1 car.
any that can graph can graph obd1 also. Even with YOUR brick there were programs available to download your data movie captured on your scanner onto a computer and graph them out.
