My daily driver, a 2001 Stratus R/T coupe, was in dire need for some new headlights. Unfortunately, these DO NOT exist in the aftermarket world, and the cross-platform car (Mitsubishi Eclipse) uses a completely different shape light, so converting to those is not an option either.
So what’s a car guy to do? Buy a parts car!
A friend of mine had bought this car soon after I had bought mine. It’s nearly identical but has more options than my car including a sunroof, leather interior and more power options. It’s the same 3.0 liter V6 and 5 speed trans as my car. And it’s also got a knocking engine (which makes it a perfect parts car).
I’m not sure what the plan is (long term) for this car, but for now, it’s the perfect donor for the lights and a few other items that my car needs.
