Default I looked at this one...

Hi everyone,

I introduced myself over on the Interiors forum, but not here. My name is Traci and as of Wednesday am a recovering minivan mom and proud owner of a 2002 PT Cruiser. I am SO excited, as I fell in love with this car when it came out, but I kept having babies and the time was never right to have one.

In looking at cars, I considered this one:

Chrysler : PT Cruiser - eBay (item 260763307361 end time Apr-10-11 12:41:56 PDT)

It seemed very cool, but my sense was that it wasn't the best choice mechanically.

I also fell in love with this one, but it was in Florida and I'm in LA and shipping would have been $1200

Chrysler : PT Cruiser - eBay (item 300543110136 end time Apr-06-11 18:21:46 PDT)

I ended up getting this one, and negotiating the price down to $4750 (plus a trade in on the beat up minivan) because of the ginormous crack in the dashboard.

Welcome aboard.

Wow ... that first one has some nice flames .... the kid would probably like that, maybe he will sell the front clip, but I think she would rather ghost flames .... I like the way they did them on the second. I'll have to keep copy of those pix.

I did not look on eBay for a PT for her 2+ years ago, looked for boring cookiecutter cars there. She told me at the start ... No Vans (Mini or Any), No Trucks (large or small), no Large SUV's and NO PT CRUISERS ... poor PT was singled out. Well after a long day of looking at beat up over smoked in cookie cutters, and one Gem a Blue Base Trim Cavalier owned by the Nuns of a local college, we were looking at another cookiecutter, a 04 Focus 4Dr with 134K on the Odo ... the saleman was moving a Black PT with Chrome Wheels .... an 01 LE and I begged her to drive it, it was one of her favorite Black or Blue color choices. It was the first car with power seats and all the extras she tried and she liked, and I liked that it had 64K on the Odo. So, that's the Kids car ..... sooner or later I will have to fill my Garage here with pictures of the PT's and maybe some others.
