This is an awesome surprise indeed! It's an honor to receive this recognition from such a great community. Thanks guys!

My Intrepid is my first car, which I bought in November of `06. Since the moment I first drove it, I knew it was the one I wanted. It's the connection you get from a car that is more than just an appliance, and more than just any car, it's your own. I love my car, which just recently ticked over 200,00 miles, and plan to keep evolving it and keep it for a long time to come

Over Since `08 I've done a lot of modifications to this car, a lot of I got help with from people in the community. Without help from you guys I would have never been able to convert my 2.7 to a 3.5. I love spending time on this site, both to learn and help when I can, and I look forward to hopefully meeting more of you guys in the future! Onto the car:

Thanks guys. :)

Still plenty to do! Top of the list is to find out why it still hesitates and the CEL blinks above 60 mph on long highway trips. I noticed the blow-by (I think that's what it's called) hose was broken,s o I replaced that last week. No idea i it could cause anything like a misfire though.

I really want to get a new driver's door so I no longer have to look at that ugly dent caused by a stolen car running into it a couple years ago, and I want to get the a/c working again.

It's on the list. :)

Thanks again everyone!
