Got mine inspected for the first time in 2 years, never bothered last summer, cause, well, the 'Rona wouldn't let me.
Figured wasn't driving much, and I'd try to beg my way out of it if ever questioned.
Passed with no issues, tires good brakes are fair, more importantly ROTORS ARE FINE!
I had them check the uConnect for lockups, of course, it was fine for them, and found out my 3 years expire TOMORROW!!! So luckily got it documented. They are doing an update on it, will pick it up tomorrow. While I was there we were drooling over the new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L and will probably be taking one home as soon as a specific Summit they have coming in arrives. Might be my most expensive inspection ever, and nothing was wrong. (I will be trading my 2 other cars, 2012 Grand Cherokee Overland 5.7 and 2018 Volvo S90 Inscription T6) so all the Jeep goodness, all the tech and luxury of the Volvo plus some, and the HEMI duty will be solely on my Challenger, but it is still 100% MOPAR.
Should look like this

"Its a string so i know where to stop when pulling into my small garage"
I have a tennis ball hanging from a string on both sides of my 2 car garage.
One side lines up perfectly with the base of my rear view mirror. The other side I put a small stick on dot inside the windshield.
I can just pull in until the ball touches the windshield at that spot and I am perfectly centered side to side and front to back.

What did I do to my challenger today? Ordered a chiller from FI Chillers for my supercharger. It's been running too hot in teh NE heat. This aught to fix it - and keep it from blowing up.

Oh wow. Two Pontiacs in one garage. How many of those were made in 2002?

1505 in 2002. Lucky to have 2 of them. Blue one has 5K miles. Red one (only 74 made w/Automatic) has 7K miles.
Still like new. Never been rained on.

Cool. And by the numbers, do you mean they are 33/1,505 and 155/1,505 from the line?
Yes, very early cars. All were numbered. Mine have engine plaques with the build #. Also documented in the SLP paperwork that came with them.
Being car #33 I am guessing my convertible is a first week or so production.
The blue T-top (#155) was custom ordered for my wife as soon as they began accepting orders. Even though it's a 2002, we actually took delivery in September of 2001.

Had my Shaker painted to match the body today. The paint shop did great work, and now I just need my custom badges from ABD to finish phase one of my exterior dress up. It's a cloudy day so the pics aren't awesome.

That's awesome. What do your custom badges look like?
Oh, and just a suggestion. Your under hood plastic could use some Armor All. :whistle:

Badges will all be Yellow Jacket over Hellraisin like this sample I had made. This badge will end up either on the left side of the spoiler or on the taillight divider.

I have not yet detailed the engine bay. Obviously. What product do you use on the plastic?

It's great to have these collectibles remain with their first owner just like you do. Kudos to you man!

Luxe Center Divider Decal in Matrix Black and a fender emblem. Looks like the emblem is a little off, We'll see how long it takes before I lose my mind and take it off & try again. :p
