4-21-07: Small update =) My intrepid is now road worthy! -happy dance- We have all the windows that needed replaced in ... the body guy at his shop and JR wet sanded & buffed the side that had the scratches from the mirror and it definately helped to make it look better until we can repaint it. the headlight is put in. It still needs some beautification done ... but it's drivable!! and so far we are about $600 into this car (including purchasing the car) Gotta love it! =))
I drove it all over last night and it runs like a DREAM!! I was VERY impressed .. I was kinda expecting the worst since we got such a good deal on it. Now the only major thing left (excluding beautification =) ) is getting plates so I can drive it full time! =))
Will take some updated pics later on today!
4-22-07 .. Got a nice wash and wax today =) Here are some pics of how it's coming along so far
This is my favorite picture ... and you can see my saturn in the background -sigh- I'm going to miss that car when it's gone .. it's been a good faithful car =(
now complete with windows =P
4-7-07 So I finally got some pictures of my car today ... These are going to be my 'before' when it starts coming together =) It's really not in THAT bad of shape ... but poor thing does still need some TLC ... I LOOOOVE this CAR!!!! =)
Retelling the story in case some may not have seen me post about it ... My almost hubby works at a dealership .. the previous owners decided either they couldn't afford or didn't want this car anymore so they took the wheels smashed in some windows and left it sitting for the repo man ... they didn't take good care of the car anyways from the looks of it ... you can tell the side mirror was left dangling ... they didn't know how to park without scraping the parking block ... my almost-hubby (JR) talked to the company that financed their loan and bought the car for me without me knowing because he knew I had wanted an intrepid for WAY TOO LONG! LOL Given the condition the company sold it for $300!!! =) So I really cannot complain about the condition .. just can't wait to get it on the road!!
And yes .. those are caravan wheels LOL I don't think they look too bad ... and it does the job for now!
I think it looks pretty in this picture
And the side with the window missing ( I was mistaken I thought it was the drivers side but it's passengers .. I had only seen the car briefly because he is keeping it at work until we get the windows put in)
The headlight that will soon be replaced once the one I bought off ebay comes in =)
The reason I will be putting a bra on it for a while
May have seen me post about how the previous owners let the side mirror dangle leaving some nasty scratches?? =(
Really the only major thing wrong with the interior ... they have a guy where the almost-hubby works that fixes interior and said he can fix it for me ... keeping my fingers crossed on that one!
The inside cleans up pretty nice we found out after the detail guy got his hands on it =)
Still has a nice rear! (minus the window of course =( )
That's all for now! Thanks for looking! =)
