edit: A little digging, these are as close as I've been able to find so far.

What plastic bits are bad on yours? I'll try to make a how-to on taking them apart for you.
I'll have to dig it out, but I think one of the mirrors is missing and possibly a wiper arm.

On that "limited edition" one, I might be willing to offer him something - but he's going to argue back that the other "rare ones" (the 1996 model sold in toy stores) are going for $40. I paid too much for my last one I got, but only because it was one of the truely rare ones.

They do seem to come and go on eBay in waves...

I will probably be stuck for the spoiler, but Its not a huge thing.

I also wanna find a 94 style Caravan for my buddy. I think he'd get a kick out of it.

edit: I dug it out. The tissue is from when it was shipped. The Passenger side Mirror is gone, otherwise its complete. Its the blue, but shows slightly purple in the pics for some reason. I bought this from Gaze when he was liquidating his Intrepid stuff.

Wow, in the box with the factory wrap on it, and it is still missing the mirror? Strange. I may have a mirror for it, I'll let you know.

I don't think the mirrors come off like the real deal cars . I wouldn't mind having one, but yes, that one eBay ad did look like Dime equivalent!

Old post, yes, but it occurs to me that I have a model WITH STEERING! (Non Intrepid though :( )

The headlights are probably the most disappointing feature of the car, followed by the tires. The tires are a pathetic lump of rubber, but they are at least KINDA like GoodYear sidewalls.

The headlights, when I repaint mine, will have to be taken off completely (masking doesn't work), and the back side of the headlights will be painted silver (the metal part, not the back of the plastic). Then super glue the lights back on. The fog lights, however, will be a challenge - as they are not possible to remove, and are hard to mask. I think I may try masking them with drinking straws.

And here is the only Voyager minivan that I know they produced... they show up from time to time...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brookfield-C...p2047675.l2557

Too bad it is the 4 cylinder model. And too bad it is a bank.
