driven 14,000 miles since purchased

My Intrepid just rolled over 110K tonight. I got her back in Feb 06 with 96K on it. I've replaced all the power steering components (including rack) , all the brakes, intake gasket, power steering pump (x3), alternator, fuel pump, tune up, water pump and a few other things. A little under $1,400 in repairs. Aside from the repairs, the car has come a long way:

The day I bought her (2/2/06)


Around summer 06':


As of yesterday:


It went from a column shifted driftwood granny sedan, to a Sport sedan with a new grey interior to an ES clone complete with leather. I hope to be getting a set of some nice wheels from Dodgeaholic so I can finally ditch those 15" steelies.

Anyway..many more happy miles to come. I replaced most everything except the transmission which shifts incredibly well. I hope to get it repainted in the summer and finally loose that ugly driftwood color on the outside.

Some future mods:
New wheels
Convert the front seats to power
sunroof

I've always been a fan of Chrysler and looks like im going to keep it that way. I've had several fords, a few GMs and one crappy ass Honda. I don't like anything the Chrysler group has out now except the minivans. That wont stop me from buying older Chrysler products. Chrysler for life!

V6 FWD Chryslers seem to bring the mileage demon out in me. Intrepid went from 72k to 152k in about 18 months' time. The van has, so far, gone 9k in 4.5 months. Ryan D for president.
