The Imp is parked for the winter.Sad I had to do it a little earlier than I had planned. My 3 kids are growing and I have company coming to stay with me for a couple of months. So my wife and I bought a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport. It has 245,000 km on the clock, and the exterior is a little beat up, but the interior is in good condition and it runs excellent. I think I got a good deal, I only paid $1000. It has power everything and for a minivan it drives and rides really nicely.

I parked the Imp at my wife's grandparents place which is about 2 hours away from me and they go to Arizona for the winter, so I don't even get to see my car for around 6 or 7 months. I had to give it a good wash and wax, and get some good pics at the beach, just to look at for the winter. On the upside, I save about $50/month on insurance which will go into next years mod fund. Twisted Evil

And now on to the pics. and as usual comments and criticism welcomed.

I'm not sure why, but I really like this picture.

And, as others have pointed out in other threads, I love how you blacked out and arranged the IMPALA badging on your trunk.

Sorry you won't have your car for a (good long) while... Sad

The badges you put on the grill look centered in this bunch of pictures. Laughing Sorry I doubted you when you first introduced them.

nice pics, sorry to see those lead grey skies above you, it's a crying shame those will eventually make their way to michigan and doom us with cold temps and snow at some point. if you tire of the black headlights look, let me know and we can swap! great to know you'll have a nice safe place for the imp to hibernate. peace, john

I don't think you would want these ones. They were a first attempt on some super cheap ebay headlights. There is some spiderweb cracks in the plastic lens. I did plan on doing my stockers the same way, but now I am just going to get the new black headlights. But if you want to buy my stockers to experiment with they may be for sale.
