Default Can't stop smiling

Great site and VERY good info.
After bugging my daughter that she should buy a PT to replace her wrecked intrepid(drunk driver-bad story) she finally said saturday"Dad,if you like it so much,why don't you get one?"

That kept going thru my mind at work sunday,monday called my regular salesman(not a dealership).Left the lot at 8 o'clock that night after work w/a '03 limited in pat. blue.
Very unlike me-no research-no comparison shopping-didn't even haggle much on price-probably got hosed
GLAD I DID IT!!!!!!!!
I LOVE MY(OUR[:0])car
Looking foward to reading all the posts(already spent many hours unregistered) and posting some in the future!!
Anyone else buy on impulse?

The big grin loves the stares!!

Welcome, Cook.
I had to wait a year to get mine, for a daughter to finish college and free up some finances. It was worth the wait.
You should've gotten a good deal on an '03 - the PT is a good deal to start with !

Enjoy and visit us often.

Let the mods begin!

Welcome aboard - we needed a good cook.

I too bought on "impulse". I did test drive a N/A last year but wanted more power - took the minivan in for service and drove out the next day with a new '03 Turbo PT - no test drive, just knew it would make me smile, and it did and still does.

Welcome to the happy world of PT Ownership Cook!

I've had mine for 18 months now, and the smile on my face is still as big as it was the day I drove my Inferno Red baby home from the dealers!

Be prepared to start spending lots-o-money on mods!!

I must admit I didn't even test drive it also-fighting the flu and had to get some dental work done-had the salesman tool me around in it for 20 mins. but my mind was made up already

The big grin ain't got no dental problems

Thats what it was you had to make up for your pain and suffering by buying a new toy. The PT is a daily driver/show car in the shopping center. Its by far a one of a kind vehicle.
Just Cruisin, 03 N/A auto. TE Steel Blue w/ pearl coat & chrome package. Too many extras to list, see pics
