Well, after seeing others make one...hell, I figured why not?

I have a 1995 Dodge Intrepid, it had about 94,000 miles on it when I bought it, and it was pretty good shape. I didn't take pics of it when I first got it, since I didn't have a camera at the time, but it used to have the 16" steel "sport" wheels, so I snatched a set of ES alloys from a junked ES from behind my BOCES shop. I love tinkering with the 'Trep, and I wouldn't give it up for anything!

BLUE STREAK

Mods so far:
- Cold Air Intake
- CPU w/o speed limiter
- JVC deck
- Pioneer speakers
- 300 watt amp (sold it a few weeks ago)
- Blue (now sorta faded) corner bulbs
- PIAA Hyper White headlights

My first pics of it:


Notice my odd exaust tip before I got my better one.







My engine bay before:


And After:
















In front of my girlfriend's house.

Even my g/f likes to pose with ol' Blue Streak!


These two were taken by the golf course nearby my house:



Other things:
My JVC deck:


My MP3 player that I use with it, a Creative Zen Vision:




Yes, this is an InuYasha steering wheel cover...and yes, I love Anime.


Meh flamed out fuzzy dice:


And my eight-ball antenna ball:


Here's the decals on my back window:


My flames give my an extra 10 HP!


Such a nice back-end...


Rawr.


My millage as of 5/14/07 (Don't mind those stupid dates)


And I found a nifty way to get rid of my moisture problem in my headlights, I drilled two holes on each corner, so I can take compressed air and blow out all the water! (You have to look closely!)


NEW PICS! <as of 5/18/07>

It was a slow day at my job a few days ago, so I took the time to clean it up under the hood.


Behold my 3.3L!


My tools of the trade:


Outside of the shop:



That's the Coram firehouse behind the shop, it's the biggest in the district, people like to refer it as the "Taj Mahal" of Firehouses.


And here's the Goodyear truck that we use daily (and beat the hell out of it.) It's an '06 Ford F-150. Unfortunately, it has the 4.2L V6 motor. My 'Trep can easily outrun it.



These were made by a friend of mine. The "pimped" version of my Trep:



More pics!

New Floor mats, and no, I'm not packing NOS. LULZ







New pics! ~as of 6/7/07~

The Floor Shifter Makes the Car feel sportier and for me, makes one hell of a Hand rest. I suggest getting a leather one, I swiped on for my El. Cheapo one and it feel much better. In fact today I believe I will be going ot the junkyard in search of other goodies.

So, At goodyear whatca do up there?

Car is lookin good! I'm actually going to find somewhere nice to take some updated pictures of my car today...

anywhere good on the Island, like scenic?
Hmm...I've been to Montauk (without my Trep though) and the landscape there is stellar, I plan to go out there during the summer. And there's always that little spot on Spring Lake golf course in Middle Island where I took some!

I personally would love to drive out to New Hampshire's coastline. Back in the day I used to live in Massachusetts, and my family went there for vacation all the time. I haven't been back there in almost 7 years now.

Well, I'm just a GS. I'm doing basic crap most of the time, since I'm the only (smart) one working after 12pm. But I keep myself busy with oil changes, tires, and brake jobs.

Brake Jobs?

GS's dont do brake jobs!!!
I would say hey, If im going ot be doing Brakej ob better make me GMT.
That is what I am. When I was a GS I did Aligments and brakes extra, But Grew tired of low pay with the extra work. I suggest you opt for GMT. With it you get full time and the benifits. Or Atleast I did.

I've been considering that pay spot, and now that I'm done with my college semester, I can put more hours in again, and in July, (hopefully) I'll have my inspector's lisense, so I'm guarenteed a GMT soon.

Oughta take a picture with your car nosed out of the building. The we could have matching photos!!

But With a good wire brush and some simple green, that a/c compressor could use some scrubing. those heat shields look as if you oughta just either replace or paint or something.
Nothing is Better than Opening up your hood and people going. Wow. omg. Thats nice.
You sure are on your way there. Dont take it I cleaned my once though. Many Times.

Suggestion Also, Armor All Proctant wipes, on all teh black stuff. Makes thing look shiney and Nice!!.

Yeah, I was thinking about just taking off the heat-shields all together. I gotta get me some simple green, I got wire brushes somewhere. And your shop almost looks identical inside to the Middle Island Tire shop down the road from where I work.

How is you intake connected to the throttle body? It looks like you just stuck it on there. Doesn't look like an air tight seal to me.
It actually is. When I first got the intake, the rubber sleeve was too small. A got another one, and while it took awhile for me to get it around the throttle opening, it was a snug tight fit, and the intake fit snugly too. I tried putting a clamp on it, but it did nothing to help it at all.
