The Evolution of My Intrepid!

After a string of bad luck with cars, I purchased my Intrepid for $2800 in spring of 2001 because frankly I didnt have much cash to work with and it sure as hell beat walking!

I was young and a bit ricey so the following pictures from 2003 may blow your mind!

In 2004 I grew up and developed a nice little hobby painting cars so I decided to put my skills to good use and gave my Intrepid its first make-over:

It was around this time that I got seriously involved with the custom scene and met a handful of people that helped me out. I joined a car club and things took off from there. That fall I had a handful of car show trophies in my posession:





Then came 2005. I was already sick of the HOK Kameleon color so I decided to go with a new shade. HOK Burple.

Sirius Satellite Radio
Fahrenheit 7.2” Monitor
Cyberhome DVD player
Ported Rear Deck







Then I got myself a set pf chrome rims halfway through the year:















At the end of 2005 I replaced the Intrepid with my Eclipse as my daily driver. The Intrepid sat and collected cobwebs for months:



But I busted her out one more time for Carlisle 2006!




As of this weekend, the Intrepid has been stripped of all the audio extras. In the next 6 months it will be undergoing another massive makeover that will include, fully shaved sides, permanent convertable, and air suspension among other things! Look for more pics of the progress soon!

Thanks for the compliments guys... I snapped a few today while I was parking her in the garage for the winter. It was pretty depressing but I'm excited for the things to come.

Looks pretty good. I had 1995 (or 98, i forget) intrepid in green, which was fitting, being its nickname was cheechnchong

Step 1 in my next transformation: Strip and Store!

I spent Saturday pulling out some of the items worthy of selling and then parked my Intrepid in a garage for the winter right along side my aunt's 65 1/2 Mustang. I think they'll look nice next to one another for the better part of the winter!

Old stock wheels slapped back on before she left my carport:


And the gutted Interior:




And her new home:






I almost cried...
