I've been searching and searching for a nice used stratus for my wife, it's all she wants. She would (nor would i ) settle for nothing older then a 99' I was hoping to find one with around 50Kmiles for $5k cash. Well most of them where ragged and some still wanting more then $5k. There where a few with 50k to 65k that where around $6500-7k. But not as clean as we wanted. I would of spent $6500 if i felt the car was in good shape and all. and Car hunting can just bring outthe rage in ya, some ppl. Well before i get into that:
WE found a 99' intrep with 53k miles and in our ballpark. It's hunter green and very nice. When the add read "like new" they really meant like new. We put some $$$ down and Saturday we'll meet at the bank to pay off his loan and get the title. I'm so very happy we did not find a stratus to our liking as i've always wanted a intrepid.
As i was hunting around on the net tring to find some accessories i found this site. Which has answered more of my Q's there anyother site. But i still can't find any of those clear tail lights
That's the car, nothing specail just nice and clean. The way i like 'em. The 3 top things on the to do list is : spoiler and woodgrain dash kit ( she's gotta have the woodgrain look ) and those clear tail lights that i guess i aint gettin if i aint makin, arg.
Now my lil storie on ppl selling cars. For those that know the area. I live in Mesquite Texas. We call a dealer in Arlington who confirms they still have a car. We get there about 1 hour later and wait for 5 to 10 min why they go get the startus. He then comes back red faces and tells us the manager loaned it out while someones car was being repaired. He forgot to tell the manager we where coming......Another lady lived in Euless but we could meet her in dallas off of Lemon ave to see it at 3:15. We wait till 4 and call her to see where she is cause we have been there since 2:55. She tell us on the phone she's inside and that she did not have time to get the car but, she brought pictures......Pictures!!! how in the hell am i soppose to test drive those !!! Now it's 4:00 and we have to be in Rowlett at 5:00 to get our daughter. That's a long way in dallas rush hour to look at pictures. Hell no, i did not stay to look at pictures. And that's just a lil of how my luck goes. I just hope this car does not turn out to be a good deal gone bad......
After a few of these i talked my wife into looking at the Intrepid. She's short and was thinking the intrepid would feel much to big for her. I could not convince her about the design of the car. Well after driving it and seeing how nice and clean it was, she was like how fast can we get to your bank to get the title....That's my girl...
