Hey guys. I was at the shop today & there was a parking spot right beside me ol' 97 Plymouth Breeze so I parked beside it today & decided to take a few pics of the "seasoned veteran" & the "new kid" (lol). I got my license during my spring break of March 2007 so I drove the Breeze from then to around May 27ish 2008.
Two days after I got the monte (the weekend of actually) the Breeze got in a horrible flood. I was at my aunt'* with my brother & my parents were driving home with the Breeze & the van. Well it was storming so bad that my mom decided that she couldnt handle it anymore so they parked the Breeze at a commuter parking lot for the night. Well next morning, they went to go get it & they saw that the inside of the windows were plastered with mud. The Breeze had been flooded, along with several other cars, the night before ALL the way to the roof of it, but it was the only car that didnt float to a different spot. It was a depressing sight. Yes, it wasn't the nicest car, but at the time, it was the nicest car out of all of my friends & I took care of it, the only problems it had was the fading paint on the back bumper & someone scratched it on the back passenger door. Me & my dad stayed up til around 3am that night taking out all of the interior & scrubbing it down. The car still runs fine for being in a flood. Didn't have to replace the engine or the trans. Just had to replace a few things here & there like the cluster, one of the computer/motors in the car, & the radio. Not sure how much rust it has now from the whole ordeal but I'm planning on giving it a good washing sometime here soon to check out the condition of it & I'm planning on restoring the headlights to help her look a lil nicer.
So yeah here are some pics of it. It has over 250,000 miles on it I think. She sure is a trooper & her name is Speedy
& yes there is a story bout why I named her Speedy lol.
