Back in October of 2009, I received a 1997 3.5l Intrepid. I got It for less than $30 dollars due to a coolling problem. While repairing the intake manifold gasket (where the coolant was leaking), I had to tighten down the valve covers which were leaking oil. Once the repairs were done, she went from a rolling paperwieght to a car that I am proud to call my own. Now all I need to do is clean up its looks and add some preformance parts.

Here are some photos of my progress.

I got my car from my parents. They told me that if I payed for the repairs, the car would be mine. They thought that I would have to replace the head gaskets, water lines, heads, etc. Well it turned out to be the intake manifold gasket to the cylinders. I bought the Intake gasket kit by FelPro ($7) and one of those repair manuals ($20). I have bought more than that including new NGK V-Power spark plugs (still had the original spark plugs), new spark plug wires, new headlight assemblies, and a K & N high flow air filter. But all of that was just things I wanted to change.

I decided to get a few new photos of my car while I was in Seattle for the day a few weeks back.

Another shot in front of Qwest Field

It does have a lit bit of an attitude from time to time.

More photos to come after I get the head gaskets repaced and a new timing belt/pulley/tersioner/harmonic balancer installed.
Also, I will soon be uploading images of my "Audi" style headlights.
