Oh don't be mad. I think you took that was taken the wrong way. Just curious what kind of sixty foot you can command out of a machine like that?

Re: Meow...........

Suffering a little driver's lament here recently.


First, the couple of small rock chips from the road trip. Expected. Shrugged those off.

Then, the door ding. Sucks but I suppose it was just a matter of time.

2 weeks ago, quarry truck hits a bump, dumps a shit-ton of pea gravel. Car ahead of me suffered the brunt, I was amazed I didn't have to replace the windshield... didn't actually hear anything hit..... get home, find that the lower chin area above the splitter got nailed. Grrr.

I make an appointment for Thursday to have the PDR guy look at the door ding hoping he can make it go away. Left a meeting in Golden Wednesday afternoon.... I see it coming... a large black something hurling through the air from the opposite side of C470.... I can't do a damn thing to avoid it.... WHAM right on the roof above the windshield. Get home, find a 2" diameter black mark and a quarter sized deep ding.

The PDR guy works his magic Thursday morning. Guy apologizes that he could only get "90%" of the ding out of the door and the roof still has a scuff that penetrated the clear that he can't do anything more with.

I'll be damned if I can find the door ding and the roof dent is invisible... the scuff looks like a hard water drip stain. Charges $110 for his 50 min of work.....BARGAIN. Freakin' guy is a miracle worker.....

Now, if I could only get the rock chips on the chin to disappear......

Re: Meow...........

Wow Nice Hellcat troy, I just bought mine in July, not a Hellcat but I still love it. 2014 R/T Classic. I plan on getting rid of the chrome stuff and getting the matte black wheels and gas cap.

Re: Meow...........

Nice R/T Ryan! These Challengers are a blast no matter the HP or trim. Just a great driver car all around.

You still working at CCPD?

I agree, its a fun driver. I love taking it out on nice sunny days. No I left CCPD in 2013. I have been working for the Woodland Park Police Department since Oct 2013 and really like it. A lot more going on. I have since obtained another XJ as well and Im slowly trying to get it in good shape. I got a 2000 XJ and its my daily driver now.

Re: Meow...........

Making room in the garage....... by using a portable garage. $1500 for an 18' dry van box on a heavy camper frame.



Added screened vents, a winch, platforms over the wheel wells, wheel chocks screwed to the platforms, $100 craigslist ramps, roof support for snow load, and roof seams sprayed with Flex Seal.






Probably been 10 years since Old Mary has been out of the garage.



All clean......tires aired up, gas tank & battery removed.





Off to the storage lot......

Re: Meow...........

Yeah I couldn't believe my luck in finding this trailer. Most standard enclosed trailers this size are $6-8K. I was about to throw down $1800 plus $250 delivery for a 20' shipping container. I wasn't thrilled that those aren't mobile. This trailer isn't set up to haul a car but for my purposes, it just needed to haul it 12 miles to the lot and sit for a few years.

Yeah....... I'd have to give up ALL the MJS and the MJ trailer. So unless other drastic changes occur...... I'll have to keep it.
