Default Pt Accident......

Hey, I just thought I'd share a little story with you all.

I am from Newfoundland Canada and I thought all you PT fans would like to know this. 4 months ago, I rolled my 2001 Black Limited Edition PT off the highway. I nose dived off a steep embankement and rolled over. The PT was absolutely totaled, but both myself, my girlfriend and my little brother walked away without a scratch. It was thanks to the PT's great build quality that we survived.

To put a happy note to this story, I just got a new 2003 Black Limited Edition PT. My old PT saved our lives. I am not about to change anything now.

That's the kind of testimonial we all like to hear!

Sorry to hear about your accident, glad eveyone was OK (except of course for your PT). Alls well that ends well, as they say.
BTW, welcome to the forum!

I can't beat it, but I came close. I spun around 180 and hit a telephone pole last December... Glad you came out ok, I did too.

Glad to hear both of you folks were all right after the incident. Sorry about your losses, but good there were no injuries.

This does bring up an interesting question, just how safe IS the car in an accident? Are there any figures published? I am sure accuaries have this information.

Man Jody's pics are still hard to look at. Almost a year has past and they still bother me. Knowing the pride we all take in our PT's its tough to see one like that. I was just waiting to take delivery of mine at the time. I think I got more upset then Jody.....
