Whelp I broke down and finally bought a Dart... been looking for the better part of a year [doesn't help I was deployed for most of that time though...]. I went to the dealership a week ago and test drove (for the third time) a Dart, and there was just something about it I didn't like... couldn't put my finger on why, but something just didn't sit right. As I was walking out the owner comes over and tells me, "you aren't leaving until I find you a car!" He sure did, there was a 2014 2.4L manual Rallye in white with the blacked out cross hairs in front and the tungsten trim interior with "hyper black" wheels (more of a gun metal if you ask me...) and most of the 'bells and whistles'. Needless to say, I am now a super, proud owner of a Dart!! :D

Zero regrets!!

Before this I was in a '90 300ZX, but with a wife and three kids the no back seat of the Z wasn't making it easy if I needed to pick up the kids... LoL I still can't believe that I can fit THREE car seats in the back seat, and still have room for other activities. A little more about me, I can a 13 year vet of the Air Force... still active and only seven years to go! Woot Woot!! Me and my wife are originally from Northeast Georgia but have been sent to New Mexico, England, and now Louisiana by good ole Uncle Sam. I've been deployed a few times to the major hot spots (Iraq and Afghanistan) and beena bunch of other places that aren't serious at all (i.e. Guam or Qatar). I am an Armament Systems Specialist, which just a fancy way of saying that I upkeep the suspension equipment that holds things that go boom on the aircraft and I load anything that shoots or explodes! It's a awesome job, but not a lot of opportunities in the 'real world' if you know what I am saying.... not a lot of 747's packing heat these days. LoL Bright side, if I screw up I get to go out with a bang and some fireworks!! :cool: Meh, enough about me..

Here is a pic or two for your viewing pleasure:
LoL my oldest hanging out in the background

Wecome from the PNW aka WA. Thank you for your service. Congrats on your new family ride.:D That front end looks sweet with the blacked out cross hairs and the black crome headlights. Do you have any plans to personalize it? Enjoy the forumZ.

As of right now I'm not 'allowed' to do anything big, wifey won't let me... I do plan on doing some small things like plasti-dipping the Dodge logo in back to black. I REALLY like the thing reuterj15 did with the red dip on the lettering and small accent trim up from this THREAD. Little things like this are what I'm shooting for plus maybe a short throw shifter and hopefully and exhaust with intake soon.

Plasti-dipping the badges and other accents is always a good place to start and will really look great on white. Maybe think about the door handles too. How about tint?

Tint is a defenite! gonna do it this week, since I'm off work. Really it's just a waiting game for parts to come out... I used to have a '00 Tiburon that I had running in the mid 11s back when I was stationed in New Mexico, so I'm no stranger to personalization/tuning... just wish some of my contacts for part for the Hyundai would work for this Dodge, then we could be in business! HA Ohz wellz....
