I bought another gen I this morning. It's a 95 with a 3.3 and nearly no options, 98k. Car came from Kansas and has not a spec of rust, even the bottoms of the doors are good.

It has power windows, locks, mirrors and a/c. That's it. I just got done cleaning the engine compartment and after I'm done eating I'm going out and washing it. I'll post pictures when I'm done. It's 60 in Chicagoland right now and I need to take advantage.

Looks like a good solid clean car. Congrats.
Thanks, its a really nice car. This one is going to my daughter, I'm hoping she will have it for a good long time.

I have a short list of things I want to do before she drives it...

Washer pump
PVC hose
Thermostat
Passenger side headlight lens
Oil change
Swap the wheels and tires from her Concorde
Swap radio from her Concorde

Man you have a nose for them LOL!!
I check craigs list daily and probably average looking at a car every couple weeks. I see a lot of junk and overpriced stuff before I find a good car at a good fair price

I have both of my daughters in Intrepids as well. Eldest is driving a 97 3.3L w/115K, youngest is driving a 97 Sport 3.5L autostick, just rolled 100K. Going to do a WP/TB swap on it in a couple weeks when I'm on vacation. My eldest daughters boyfriend drives a 97 3.3L Intrepid w/229K, rusty, but trusty. I drive a 94 LHS 3.5L w/75K. A guy at my workplace has a 97 3.3L Intrepid w/41K for sale asking $4K for it. Still smells like new. I'd like to have it, but he's about $800 higher than book and won't budge.

Have been trying to sell the LH car idea to the daughter. She's 16 and needing a car to learn on but, she has adopted the wife's attitude toward this body style. So, I am at the crossroads of wanting to help. I am about ready to just say "If you want a car then just have your mother buy you one".

Wife always tells me she doesn't like the LH body because the cars sit too low. This comes from a woman who drives a JS Avenger. Sometimes I just have to sit back and pause.

When it came time for my kids to drive I told them they would drive what I bought as long as I picked up the tab or did the service. They knew their mom (my ex) wouldn't get them a car. I agree the LH rides low, I don't mind but I know my wife would prefer something that sits higher.
