NuckingFutzz ----- Signature thread

My name is Russ. I live in Windsor Ont just across the border from Detroit. I am 30 years old and a Truck Driver. I bought my 2000 Chrysler Intrepid R/T last year May/10 with about 125K. I bought the car while I was living in Toronto. The car had/has some problems when I got it. To start the driver side window would fall off the track because of some thieves that failed to steal the car they also keyed the passenger side door. I have fixed the window but the door remains keyed. The window Tint is bad on the drivers windows that I had replaced it was scratched down the middle and was starting to peel, the rear windshield is horrible (I have a pic). Other poblems were lights needing to be replaced in the dash and the domes Last issue with this car is the sterring I think the rack has a bad bearing in it but it will get fixed when I get the cash. Otherwise the drivetrain was well maintained and documented the woman who owned the car only drove about 5km to work everyday which is really good for Toronto. This car had only left the city 2 times (so said the previous owner who had the car for 5 years).

Here are some pics from when I went to the drag strip about a month after getting it. St.Thomas dragway Sparta Ont.









About 3 months later I was rearended while sitting at a stop light. The guy was driving a 1985 Chevy Pickup from Michigan so he tried at the last minute to go around and clipped my right rear corner.









Ironically the rental place gave me this while my car was in the shop. Awsome truck!!!!



Sadly one of my R/T wheels was damaged during the accident so I sold the 3 remaining good ones. The car was almost written off because of the damage to the inner panels but thankfully they fixed it. Now it runs straight without any problems.

As the car sits today a little dirty thanks to all the rain weve been getting.















My foggy headlights





My really bad rear tint.



So that my R/T right now. I will be doing some work on her in the next weeks/months so I will update as I go.

^^I agree...

Nice car nonetheless, love the R/T trim...only wish they didn't remove so many non-performance options with it.

I wanna to the taillights and was thinking of painting the steel rims black and getting the police style center caps (until I get some proper wheels).

Love tinted tail lights. One of the first things I did, after replacing my fogged headlights. Looks good so far
