Has everyone here signed up and PAID for this site? i understand that some things like custom mods should be paid for but unless im missing something, they want you to subscribe to get instructions on how to change your spark plugs.

bear,

If you've never changed your own plugs (specially in a PT) it can be a little daunting and the pictures and explanation in the do-it-yourself site can be very helpful. There are thousands of helpful hints in that site for anyone thinking about modding out their cruiser. All the trouble codes and what to look for and hundreds of questions and answers from owners needing help. I've had my cruiser over 3 years and used the non-paid site many times but now that I've done almost all that I'm going to do to my PT, I don't see myself needing that kind of information...but if your just starting out...it could be a very helpful tool.

Dont be so cheap. That site has tons of good information and pictures to go along with them. It is by far the best site to go to for repair type work and tips on doing the job.

^ Cheap shot ^

Apparently the PT community is not as user friendly as, say the Corvette community. Having been an administrator for a Corvette Forum for a couple of years I can say this with first hand knowledge. One could rebuild any generation of Corvette without paying for the correct info from any source. Owners of these american classics are more than willing to share their own experiences in all the processes of the corvette repair and restoration. Members have traveled well across state lines to offer help to other members in need. The Forum I was associated with never asked for funds of any kind. That was a by-law set fourth in the mission statment. Infact we wouldn't even allow a "pay per view" site to be posted. Paying for info is a way to go if one has nowhere else to turn....but isn't that what forums are for? I don't doubt that the PT site offers great information for the owners of PT's, but I certainly wouldn't pay for it.

Just my .02 [^]

Stone PT, I have to take exception to your comments, IMHO he has set up this site using other peoples info into a very easy way to search and find the answers to almost any question a PT owner may have on their vehicle. The money I've spent on the PT is nowhere near the paltry amount that is requested.

I have used that site when it was free and YES I've paid my $20 and am glad the info is at my fingerteps.

I paid because it was cheaper than buying a shop manual...
I do think its complete cr** that a lot of those instructions were donated by other PTers BEFORE it was a pay site....
