Todays random pic is the new radio for my jeep. Actually its the radio that was the available from the factory when it was new. Except that it has orange lights instead of blue-green like all the other Chryslers put there. The Radio itself is from an Intrepid (which had orange dash lights.) and the face (so it could fit) was from a Ram. So I get orange lights and a green clock. I think it looks kinda cool, don’t you?

UPDATE AS OF OCTOBER 2010 THIS CAR IS NOW SOLD!
Up for sale is a 1991 Dodge Shadow ES with low mileage for a car this age. This used to be a weekend car for me until my wife was no longer able to carpool so I am wanting to sell this so I can purchase a pickup that is more suited to my needs for work. Otherwise I would not want to part with this. Until I started driving it everyday, I was contemplating getting it registered as a classic.

The original cost of this car was $16,784.00
It is rated at 23mpg city and 28mpg highway.
The top is new and was installed only two years ago and is always booted when put down. The rear window was replaced as well. The top color used to be white, but I got it replaced with a gray top to match the interior.
It is up to date on service. I just changed the oil and the inspection is up to date and is good till March 2011.
I am only the second owner of the car.
It runs great and is comfortable to drive.
Passenger side window motor is new.
Only 45000 miles on it. Might be a little bit more because I drive it everyday still.
Not to mention it is a convertible and fun to drive in nice weather with the top down!
Driver side window has failed on me despite being fixed in March. It is currently stuck in the down position.
Was backed into in a mall parking lot. The grill and hood are damaged and need to be replaced for the car to look nice cosmetically.
The paint is pealing in a few spots, mostly the hood. This is common for Chrysler vehicles painted white.
Front speakers no longer work
The A.C. Needs to be recharged.
The roof leaks. This is a design flaw with this car. The original owner has told me that it has leaked since 1991 when he bought it.
I hope I have described this accurately enough for you. Please contact me if your interested in taking it for a spin. Please take a look at the photos or come see it for yourself. ohnocomix (at) gmail (dot) com.
