Celebrity Status Achieved!

So I got the call a week ago that my dream car had finally arrived and even though I was so excited I was also very sad, it was bittersweet as I had to trade in my old friend for the cash for clunkes program and it was off to the big raceway in the sky for my 92' Dodge Stealth "Maximus". He was a great looking car, but he was just run into the ground and since the AC kept going out and I live in Florida he hadn't been driven in months. I took tons of pictures documenting the difficult and final journey for Maximus (found a place 3 hours away selling AT MSRP but that is a tough trip with no AC and my window wouldnt go down, luckily I have an amazing fiancee who was applying ice packs to me and spraying me with a water bottle fan the whole time LOL).

It was extremely hard saying goodbye to my old friend even though my mom thinks Im crazy as do some of you Im sure but hey it was my first awesome car and I've had it for like 10 years. I got a little teary eyed as the dealer drove him to the back, I actually back there to see him off. Hope his parts will help out other Stealth owners and he didn't die in vain LOL

Ok on to the good stuff, the car is freaking AMAZING, toughest SOB on the street and everywhere we go in it we're literally turning heads just like we're celebrities. On the trip home had some officers who were at a 7 Eleven talk to me about the car, they asked if I got the SS (I got the 2 LT) and I told them Im totally happy with 300+ horsepower and I didn't need another reasosn for them to pull me over lol. 3 days later I let my mom take it for a spin and we pulled up to a light and a state trooper pulled up next to us and told us to roll down our window. He goes "Wanna trade?" Lol he told us we needed to commit a felony so he could take the car. Everyone wants to stop me and ask about the car or stand there and drool over it. I LOVE IT!

Just a few concerns though is anyone else having a tough time seeing the front sides? Its really hard to take turns and park b/c I can't see the curbs and the blind spots were very intimidating on the drive home but all in all Im getting used to them. Lol I love everything about this car, ambient lighting is incredible, handles and sounds amazing and it just looks amazing (nickel gas really pops on the car) I've had it not even a week and I've already washed it twice Im that obsessed lol. Alright enough rambling enjoy the pics guys and enjoy your rides!

I know the feeling of letting go of your first car, I got teary eyed about mine too. Don't worry it has gone t a better pleace(I guess). Your new gaurdian will take care of you nicely though. Your fiance hopefully will not have to also worry about fanning you and applying ice packs. haha. Glad you got it for MSRP, I paid 500 over but a wwell worth it deal cuz they are giving me tint, one year free car washes, door edge gaurds and painted pin stripes which compensate for the 500 over. I hate the 'SS' question, I will be coming up with very witty and clever responses for this question!

I know the feeling of giving up the car you love. I love my 99 Trans Am. I bought it used and loved every day I was able to drive her. She was always good to me. It been really tough selling here so I could use the money for a down payment for my new baby. I will be in a state of morning until I finally get my new baby. I still have a ways to go.

Btw, very beautiful car. I am sure your new camaro will take away any pain you had in trading in your other car.

Too bad for the Stealth being traded under the Cash for Clunkers program. This virtually guarantees it will be killed with a lethal dose of sodium silicate. This execution hard for us car enthusiasts to take.

Great story and pics though. Thanks for sharing.

Lol well my first car was a Mercury Topaz or better known as a Ford Tempo from like 85' or something totally ancient with NO AC in Florida so the Stealth was a monster upgrade for a guy fresh outta high school and the rims were already on there so I just went with it. Loved those rims though you can trash em all you want but back in the day they were HOT Have no fears though my friends Im past that phase and am sticking with the polished aluminum rims from here on out!
