A Myth's Stock '02 SE Pic Thread (56K Beware)

Just thought I'd get some pics up of my '02 SE I just bought. It's totally stock so far, and needs some love, but it'll look better with time. :-)
Here's what it looks like now.

A Full View:


A Frontal View:


Front-Side Like View:


Other Side:


From Behind:


The Interior:


Controls:


Crappy Gauges Shot:


Driver Side Door:


Under the Hood:

Little Closer:

No Flash:


Just out of curiosity stuck the camera under the car to see how clean it is. No idea what I'm looking at, but it's under the front passengers' side. Looks to be minimally rusty, huzzah! But then again...wtf do I know?


It's crazy clean and in great shape for 71K miles. However she isn't perfect. There are a couple of things I'm not thrilled with.

It may not really come out in these pics, but there is some paint scratching in on her nose.



There is also one tiny dent on the back of the roof, but I'm not sweating it because you can only really notice it if your looking for it. I had to angle the camera funny just to get it to show even a little.




Then there is the one major problem. A huge ugly scratch on the rear driver side. It was the thing that put me over the edge to make it worth it to have the car painted soon. It looks terrible, but I can't complain to much as I got the guy to lower the price a bit because of this. (And the bald tires it had on iit then)






Well, thats it for now. My first priority is to get it painted Black, as I hate the tan. Then get some nice seats in it. Definitely want to get the windows tinted too since that shouldn't be to expensive. After that I haven't really thought it out yet. I'll update though.

Oh, and yes she is Canadian so she says Chrysler and wears the wings. I kinda like that better than the Dodge logo though, so it's actually a very minor plus for me.

As for the odd location, it was because I had stopped in between some abandonded buildings to scope one out for photography. (I love pics of rotting buildings. I sneak in at night and take photos. Lots of fun.)

I remember back 4 years ago when I joined and my car was a stock monster. Keep this original pics and then if you have it in two years compare and you will be amazed at what this site can help you do with your car.

Haha, don't worry I had a towel handy.

You'd love this building. It's actually one I've been in before and they have started renovating the nicer half of it. There are actually two rather large trees growing in what used to be a gym of some sort. It's quite an amazing sight.

Actually, all the LH's were made in Canada. (Brampton, Ontario to be exact) They just slapped "dodge" and a dodge airbag (on the driver's side). If yours was made for Canada, you would have the KM/H in big and have DRL's (daytime running lights...do you?)..... :p. Some Intrepids that were made for the US ended up like yours, so you are not alone, lol. Have fun modding it!!

Thanks for the history lesson Bim. :-P No DRL btw.

Yeah, I like the look of these hubcaps. For stock they dont look half bad. I like just a plain simple look like that.

Also, I have decided to add a switch to a floor shifter from the column to my "definitely want to do list".

Seriously, just spray paint them? That won't cause any issues?
