My wife and I went to Cleveland with our son so he could see a specialist at the Cleveland Clinic. He has a very rare kidney disorder and this is the first doctor that knew anything about it.

The next day was New Years Day 2014 so we spent a few hours at the R&R Hall of Fame. It's a bad angle on a cheap phone but this is me goofing off. And no, it's not David Crosby, lol.

I have to admit that the resemblance is quite pronounced.  And, are you standing in front of the actual stage prop from that album cover ?  Very cool .  .  .

It was a huge box that was extensively air brushed and at the hall of fame. I don't remember what the plaque said but I'd have to guess yes that was the original.

Thinking back it may have had a painted canvas front but it looked very good even up close.

That mileage actually seems to be pretty good.  I say this based on my completely unscientific reasoning which says I've seen much worse.  I seem to remember Ford Focus owners being really lucky to see more than 30k miles from front pads AND rotors.  The Ford Five Hundred/Mercury Montego had significant problems with the rear brakes  -  pads AND rotors needing replaced at less than 15k miles, (Ford issued a Customer Satisfaction Program for that one) .  .  .

Purchased a new camera, and figures the first photos I take features a car.



Went to the local Farm Heritage Trail for my 3 mile run. Thanks to the local gravel roads in this part of Indiana, my car is filthy; The pictures don't show how dirty my car is, but as long as the inside is clean I'm happy. It has been slightly over two years since I've owned this car (really?), and happily I still like it.

Two years already ?  It's hard for me to wrap my brain around that idea.  Good to hear you like the car.  What's you opinion of Chrysler's quality at this point ?

I still have this perception that Chrysler's quality falls a little behind the competition, but I don't really have any concrete data to back that up (I don't trust Consumer Reports). The 1st gen 200 isn't the "new Chrysler", and I'm sure you already know that it shares a lot in common with the Chrysler Sebring. The door hinges are a poor design, needs to be lubricated often.

As for my personal 200, it doesn't have any interior panel rattles, doesn't consume oil, shifts great, drives awesome.

The only issues I have are sometimes the headlights lever will not turn off the headlights when I switch it to the "off" position, I have to wiggle it on/off for the headlights to turn off... regardless, the automatic/off feature always works. Also, I'm getting front end suspension noise when I roll over a bump or hit steep incline; wondering if the tie rod end is going bad.

Ok.  This sounds like relatively minor stuff.  Noise in the front end over bumps could be a number of things - sway bar end links, (not a big deal at all, not too expensive), shocks/struts, (a little more involved and a lot more expensive), or ball joints, (a labor intensive process).  A tie rod issue will usually manifest itself in the form of a squeak when turning the wheel.  But none of the above is "catastrophic" in nature .  .  .

Nothing nice. Just a $3,000 to $5,000 car.

Car finally sold... maybe I was asking too much or maybe not that many private party shoppers Undecided. Part of me will miss her.

Currently driving a 2016 Hyundai Accent... um, rental car. It is actually not too bad of a small car.

Looked a some cars here and their, but no luck. Some cars were downright scary. Some sketchy sellers, you know like the guy that says his car has been reliable and is his daily driver, but when you go and look at the car it has temporary tags on it. Gave up and increased my budget.
