Since I've made no formal announcement here, here it is.

In March I sold my 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix SE with 120,000 miles on it. A week later, I bought this:

A 2002 Chrysler 300M Special in Deep Sapphire Blue with the slate slate/light taupe two-tone interior. I bought it with 62,242 miles on the clock, and it now has 64,409.

Only mod so far is the front retractable license plate. Before I bought it, it was registered in Pennsylvania for its entire life. So, it had no front plate. The front bumper cover was flawless. The dealer gave me a front plate mount for use in NJ and told me how to install it. The moment he said to drill into the bumper, I threw the stupid thing in the backseat and forgot about it. Went online and bought a retractable license plate mount from Swift Motorsports and never looked back.

Plate up, just for you Johnny Law:

Hey, where'd it go?! :ghost:

It's been exactly four years since I had an LH. How's it hangin'? :jester:

Sweet M!! Awesome interior.
Very nice! Top notch in person. I would like to take a closer look at that license plate setup too.

I can edit this for you, just let me know what you want where.
Here's what the link should look like:

All fixed.
Update on the car. Had a minor rear-end collision Sunday night in Dover, DE. My car is the one that was struck. Outwardly, it appears that there are some scratches and cracks in the paint. What you can't see is the energy absorber was damaged (I have a chunk of it in the glove box) and there is a 50/50 shot that the cracks are actually in the bumper cover plastic and it will need to be replaced.

Total estimate for a new OEM bumper cover is $1,842.70. Might have to be new OEM since only 4500 Specials were ever built, and there is no aftermarket, so used and refurbed will VERY hard to find. There is also a back order until the middle of next month, so it will be a few weeks before it gets worked on.

Ahhh, sorry to hear that Rob...dammit!! New OEM is the best bet, if the insurance will get you one! Chrysler is having alot of trouble getting parts right now, so not surprised to hear about the back order. That sucks man!
