hello.... i'm a newbie of maybe a week, week and a half maybe(?) here..
I had gotten 94 Trep from my BF's dad July 10, 2011 and it was like, love at first sight haha. Though I was never a fan of "boat" cars, but this one seemed different. I was always into Mustangs and Camaros, and had wanted a 2004 Mustang to be my first car, but had gotten this one instead. This car is my baby! I had started with a name for it, RIK, don't know why, it was the first that came to mine, but after i had gotten it registered, partial of my License Plate read "SWN" and because my Trep is black my boyfriend said to me, "hey jazzmyne, you should call it The Black Swan instead of RIK, because of your license plates and the colour, and that movie you like so much" and it stuck.

I cannot wait to get enough money to start putting work towards The Black Swan.
I have a little (big) list of things I plan on putting on my car such as the following:

LATER MINOR ACCESSORIES:
Seat covers for car : $20
Steering wheel cover: $10
Floor Mats: $23
Cassette Adapter: $23

Total: $76
________________________________________________________________

LATER UNNECESSARY ACCESSORIES:
PlasmaGlow Lightning Eyes LED Headlight Kit Purple: $41.90
PlasmaGlow 3FT LumaFlex Strip Purple: $57.77
Hood Pins: $66
L/R Corner Lights: $93.94
L/R Headlight Brackets: $106.86
L/R Headlights: $47.70
Carbon Creations Fiber Wings Bomber Wing: $359.20
PlasmaGlow Extreme LED 4-Pack - Purple: $12.06
Extreme Dimensions Fiberglass Hoods - Motorsport: $359.20
Sparco Fuel Door: $130


Total: $1274.63
_______________________________________________________________

PAINT JOB(Black with Dark Purple Racing Stripes): ~$1000.00


Total: ~$1000
________________________________________________________________


GRAND TOTAL:
$2,350.63

haha as well as:
1994 DODGE INTREPID PERFORMANCE PARTS
Weapon R Exhaust Tip - 4" Slanted: $60
Pilot Cobra " Wheel Cover Black Chrome w/Red Accent: $28.37
MagnaFlow Exhaust Pipe - Smooth Transitions: $46.46

TOTAL:
$???

There are a few minor problems with my Trep such as the headlights hang out, loud muffler noise, ignition starter, and just recently the passenger recliner had broken, which I hope to get fixed soon:)
I want alot for my car, but I love cars soo much and this is my first one and I am extremely ecstatic about it. I hope to keep this car for a very long time :)

Thanks for hearing my short story about the Black Swan..:)

i think it reads 174364
there's a smudge that makes it read 4, but i'll check in the car tomorrow cause now that you mention that...
i zoomed in and it looks like a 1 with a smudge but i will double check.

it is in good shape.. and i plan on getting a few of the mechanical things that are wrong with it fixed.

the only thing that really bugs me is the minor rust over the headlight..
rust bugs me on cars and its got some (sun) damage(?)

but some previous owner before my bf's dad had buffed it or whatever to get it repainted but they never did repaint it so the paint is like half flat on the top and somewhat glossy on the bottom.
that also bugs me (i know its minor but i want a better black paint job) haha. this is my first car after all :)

by the way, Those front seats are out of a 2nd gen car. They are not 1st gen seats.
Sadly, First thing I noticed too. Also appears she has the alternate routing of the Serp Belt going on too. (belt goes from bottom of crank around waterpump than to P/s pump)


There are a couple of us 3.3 guys who know a couple things about the engine. And my specialty is the suspension, so when you want some true performance besides a steering wheel cover let's us know and we can give ya a list of things to do. Or just check out our Sigs on here.

If I were you I'd just buy a new hood. You can probably find a really cheap one on craigslist.

I would do that before modding. New headlights would also be cheap. Gotta make the outside look as clean as the inside lol
