About “Poncho”

Late last year, it was my Torino that got destroyed. A few months ago, it was my wife Sandi's '02 Malibu. We found this car at an auction of reposessed and off-lease, bank-owned cars. It was the nicest car there that would suit our needs, and we were very nicely surprised when we won the auction! Since we bought it, we haven't been anything but happy with it. Its a lot more fun than I expected- It accelerates and handles like a BMW 3-Series, but with better gas mileage and more interior room! (And I like the styling better, too!)

About “"The Trep"”

It was my mom's car then she got a new one and i bought this from her and did some modifications and hope to do more in the future, not too bad for an intrepid.

Mods for “Poncho”

Nothing.. yet!
(It's my wife's car, so it's up to her. I'll make suggestions.. )

Mods for “"The Trep"”

engine chip/tune upgrade added 10-15 horsepower
chrome side vents/chrome pillars posts/chrome window trim
20" rims in the summer, c-town winters are hard on wheels
custom halo-ring projector headlights (like BMWs have)
infinity speaker system, will get subs in the future, but it still bangs when i crank it
XM/Sirius satalite HD radio, no commercials is the best!!!!
chrome exhaust tip
smoked tail lights

Future wants:
Subs as i said earlier
beast exhaust system
window tint
maybe leather seats/2 tone paint but that is a reach for me to afford anytime soon
