Default PT GT vs. PT GT which?

Ok I found (2) 1 owner silver '03 PT's. the first one is a 5speed GT loaded with 73k miles and some new parts-tires etc-no warranty of course but clean-no body damage at all for $6,500 & the second one is an automatic GT same virtual car but with factory flames(silver flames) on the kood and doors-very cool- but with 25K miles and 8 months left on the 7/70K but they want $10,000.. The difference in the 2 cars of course is $3,500. Which is the better deal>???? All opinions welcome.Thanks.{I make you guys think} Im undecided? MJB** I can drive both a stick or automatic-both have their benifits**

Cool Re: PT GT vs. PT GT which?

Since the extended warranty doesn't cover everything....
I'd base the decision on whether yo want a manual or auto transmission.

The manual gives you better mileage, performance, and is likely to be trouble-free, where the auto can die on you.
At least they are both silver!

Own a silver '05 GT myself (auto). Have to figure the auto
isn't even broken in yet with only 25k miles on it. There any
other mods on either of them: strut tower brace, cold air
filter, dash kits?

Default Re: PT GT vs. PT GT which?

for me id take the one that has the warranty on it nd only 25k miles. thats what i would go with. i got an 01 cruiser with 85k but never had to fix anything big. just the brakes twice, struts once and the tail lights once. thats all the repairs my dad (1st owner) and myself (owner now) ever had fixed in the car so i think chrysler does good on keeping the cars on the road and not in the shop lol. but they coulda put a HID kit standard on all cars. also solved my flcikering lights problem. see my post on flickering lights with HID headlights solved.
