Friday the 15th will be 5 years since I bought my 06 Limited
175524

it was a one owner trade, the only change I have made is the 02-04 300M wheels I added 2 years ago. It has been trouble free to a fault, the only repair I have had to make is replacing the alternator last August. Which is awesome except for the fact I haven't had the opportunity to work on my car which is a big part of being a car guy.

I bought this AWD 07 W.P. Chrysler Signature Edition Touring as a Christmas gift for my wife. Mechanically it is solid it just needs some cosmetic attention. I have been changing all of the fluids to familiarize myself with the car and start out with a clean slate, learning a lot about it in the process. Yesterday I bought a roll of upholstery tape to patch the seats until I can find replacements or reupholster them

The day after New Year's I purchased an 05 300C

I saw another 05 C on FB Marketplace that caught my attention, the guy mentioned in the ad he was including a parts car, curious I asked for pictures expecting a basket case, instead (see above) I asked if he would consider selling the parts car separately. He said shoot him an offer, I offered $500 just as a starter, he countered $600 and I couldn't get there fast enough.

It has 163K miles the body and interior are in excellent shape, the engine dropped a piston. I am pretty stoked having some cars to work on now and am looking forward to making them as nice as my 06.

A great hobby and I expect you'll have fun. FYI, those seats look almost exactly the colors I put in my wife's Pathfinder. We had Roadwire covers put on. They are about a year old now and have been like new OEM. I had all three rows, armrests etc done on the Pathfinder for about $1200.

Since his is an 05, he probably dropped a valve seat and it took out the piston. Very common if the driver either continues to drive it (if it will run) or keeps trying to start it. The valve seat(s) usually break apart and destroy the top of the piston and/or take out the top ring land because it is so close to the top of the piston.
