About “black pearl”

After years of owning one junk heap after another (parking at the back of the parking lot at school events) I told my wife next time around I wasn't going to get her hand me downs. I wanted to pick the next car myself. I saw this beauty on Craigslist and after going back and forth with the owner for about a month we finally settled on a price.

About “Intrepid R/T "Special"”

Here's a little about me. I'm from Montreal, Canada. (Yes, I'm a french Canadian) Let's go back in time..... My dad owned 2 Intrepids. First, he got a 1999 base model in October 1998 (ran flawlessly) and then changed it for a 2002 R/T in October 2001. I fell in love with the Intrepid the first time I drove it. From then on, I decided that this would be my next car. I wanted the R/T because of it's look and power. So, on July 5th, 2003, I officially became the owner of a silver 2000 Intrepid R/T. Right after that, I went on the net looking around for mods. and found a club/community dedicated to our cars. That's when I found out that you could do a bunch of upgrades and modifications to these cars. As you can see, this isn't your everyday Intrepid anymore. I wanted to be unique so that's why I installed the bodykit and the interior. I wanted to have a sporty looking ride with a classy look on the inside. What's next?? Who knows!! ;)
