Default New Battle Cruiser Added

Hey

Just picked up my 4th Crusier. Got a 05 GT Conv 5 spd with 13600 miles

Silver with black top, in nice shape. Didnt really need it but couldnt resist.

Will start working on it tomorrow, intend to buff it out good, change all the fluids, rust proof it, paint the underside, put some mud flaps on it.

It also needs a Front wheel bearing but other than that it checked out good.
Dealer had put lower controls arms, new mopar battery, brand new tires on it and they warranty if for 6 months 6000 miles. The wouldnt bite on the Front wheel bearing because it wasnt making noise but it has some play in it.

Anyhow I'll take some pics once I get it in the garage tomorrow.

That's a bad wheel bearing, there should be not play.

Congrats!

Well the car has 13,653 miles.

I checked it out and brought it down to another CDJ dealer around the corner from me where a couple of my buddies work.

We checked it over real good. Only thing we found was the driver FWB, if you push and pull on the tire at 12 and 6, there is a slight play, my buddy said the bearing will start to go. Funny thing is, there is no noise.

Anyhow we used the DRBIII for codes, checked Dealer Connect and what not.

THe dealer I got it from is another CDJ dealer and they pulled all the maintenance tickets on it so I know what was done. In last 3 months it sat on the lot, they had to put a battery in it. They took it in a trade from the orignal owner who bought it, the fall of 2008. THey got it new in Oct 2004 and could never sell it, so they drove it for about 5500 miles.

The car had basically sat most of it's life. The person who owned it lived on a Island off the coast of Maine so I guess the car sat parked most of the time at the ferry terminal at Rockland. The guy lived on Vinalhaven(John Travolta and Christy Ally have a home there) and has a summer house in FL. So my guess is he probably ferrryd it over to his house on the island for winter and parked it and left it on the mainland during the summer to get around when he came off the island.

They got it last August and put new LCA's and a set of tires on it.

Anyhow I'll get a bearing and yank the knuckle and have my buddy press the hub and bearing apart and press the new one in and I will reinstall.

Other than a few scuffs in the paint the exterior is really good and the interior looks like it rolled off the assembly line.

Nice thing is it hasnt scene any snow, the underside it mint so a couple coats of Rust Encapsulator and Chasis Black are in order

Yes

I am going to sell my Shadow to a freinds son. It is going to a good home since both know Turbo Dodges inside and out. I have been driving it for 20 years and it has 292K miles on it so I got my moneys worth.

Per the new PT, Ill drive it during the summer and the 06 Base during the winter.

I found this last fall, I always punch PT GT into cars.com, auto trader and craigslist to see what is out there. THe dealer couldnt sell it because it was a stick So their loss my gain LOL


so it pays to budget for cars and always be on the lookout for a killer deal.
