Gee, I've had the VIN for my 02 PT posted online for 16 yrs now.

And my 05 PT Conv has been posted online since I got it back in April

Heh, heh, and way back in the day it used to be a no no to have your email addy posted online.

I've had my carnut@carnut.com posted online for more than 20yrs now and every scammer in the planet has harvested it.

Back in the "olden days" at least in Texas, may be different elsewhere, you actually had to go to the DMV, in person, and fill out a form if you were seeking VIN or license plate info on someone else. Even then, there were only specific circumstances (related to an accident for instance) where they will release that info to 3rd parties. Now it is much easier to obtain the personal identifying information, thanks to the Internet. But why make it easy for a scammer by publicly posting such info?

If the wind blows and I am sure it will your car cover will slightly balloon up and hold all the dust and dirt from where you park all over your PT Cruiser. And if the winds continue that dirt will act as fine sand paper rubbing between the cover and the paint on the finish.
EDITED:

Thanks the advice on the cover. If you remember, you already told me about this and I explained the purpose of the cover in my thread on it. Also, I don't have your OCD (as you once described it) on car washing. There's a way to properly wash vehicles at a car wash. Everyone including "car guys" do this all the time with very nice cars and very nice results such as I have always gotten. I think you already know that.

Let's not do this back and forth thing. Again, I appreciate the advice from everyone on this forum including yours. But if we have to worry about setting ourselves up, then we are right back where we were. I know we can be better than that.

The mounts in the picture are blue but I opted for Mopar Orange!
I got them in today and I am really pleased. The color is dead on ( picture was taken outside and it's overcast) these things are rock solid and have urethane bushings, washers and instructions. Love them and the warranty is unbeatable.

I don't think I've ever seen a car wash without any pressure. Do you guys use water wells and buckets on ropes?

Come to one of the better car washes where I live and you will see it full of good folks washing their own cars. Everything from $80K Jaguars and Corvettes to nicely modded Chargers and Challengers. And of course, $80K four wheel drives too. I mean, this is Arkansas. Some of the young bucks and doe even hang out there on the weekend with their cars.

PM me and I can teach you how to do this. I'm really surprised you don't seem to know how to use a car wash correctly? But we can remedy that.

The sad part is that the cost is about the same as taking it to be done by "professional car folks". And when I say professional car folks, I mostly mean convicts on work release. They do a great job. Just don't temp them with valuables left in the seat.

and the thread about using a local pressure wash to clean a PT Cruiser on this PT Cruiser forum is where???:confused

http://www.ptcruiserlinks.com/forum/detail-shop/:





You are confusing a cost value with how someone feels about their ride. I am sorry there is NO WAY you can clean a car as well at a pressure car wash than a detail shop can do or that any single person can do at home in the driveway!!

I agree as long as we both agree that some detail shops do bad work and some folks have no clue how to clean a car at home either single or married.

But that's not the point.

The point is the you can do a very good job at a car wash. Or at least some folks can. (You may need training). And to be exact, you can do everything at the car wash you can do at home and likely better than many folks with just a garden hose. And if you are all OCD and don't understand the law of demising returns (sound familiar), then you can bring all your soaps, oils, conditioners and feminine products with you.

That is an argument that many have on this forum if something does not work out well when they contract it out?
But that's not the point.

You argument IMO is losing it value. We all know that sure if you bring enough quarters and your own cleaning supplies you can do a fine job of detail and wash at a pressure wash service. I know no one that desperate.

demising returns, OCD and very edgy sexest comments ....well you have never seen any of my rides so comments may be a from a person that has never had there ride entered in a show. Again I am sure a couple members like CREWZIN can explain?

Just so you know that I understand your responses....

This is from a member here just sent this to me he found on a none PT Cruiser.
I went there and read lots of arguments between members. They are very passionate about ther cars.

A few of us are wash fanatic's. This test would not apply to the way in which we wash or rides nor does it include the high quality products that we use to do a detailed washing.

Um. There's no apostrophe needed. The apostrophe shows either possession, like: NitroPT's PT, - OR - an apostrophe is used when a contraction is used like: there's (there is). For plural, you just add the s, like: PTs (more than one)

Just sayin'
