Well, the plates are not personalized (I'm still poor), but the new thing is the plates themselves. Not sure how many people notices in all of my previous pictures, there were no plates or anything. I just went friday and titled it in my name, registered, insured it and then saturday when I got home, I put them all on and took it for a drive for the first time in the 10 months that I have owned it. Wouldn't it figure though that I get .1 mile from my house and it suddenly downpours. Thankfully the car was running decent, the wipers worked, and the brakes righted themselves (mostly). I drove it around for about 40 miles this weekend checking on things. I do have a couple issues to work out, like the high Idling temp, coolent level sensor, and brakes. I think the front calipers are sticking cause when I got home the last time, the fronts were smoking a little, but other than that, it is going well. I enjoyed driving it. I talked with my dad and he said that he is going to have the mechanic fix the remailing mechanical issues and that it WILL be ready to drive out to B-Fest at the end of july
I am not tackling any appearance stuff until it is mechanically sound. I'll probably be heading to B-fest with a trunk full of parts to put on it. Here is hoping it all goes well.
For those that don't know the story of the car, bought it in aug for $400 having 91k of it, needing a motor and having a cracked fender and some bumps on the front and rear bumper, but the rest of the body was immaculate. I put an engine in it in January after it was determined the original was knocking. Over the last 2 months I have been working on the little things to get it up and running.
