Default found a 05 ptgt

i found the car of my dreams this weekend. driving along i noticed a car sitting in the weeds. i slowed down and looked closer. its an 05 inferno red PTGT with the HO 2.4l turbo. auto shift transmission. upon first look it appears that it had been in an accident :-( but i stopped and looked closer. the front bumper is sitting in the car. all of the engine shrouds/air filter box is sitting in the passengers side floor. motor appears to be half apart (my guess is that the timing belt went. brought it some where to be fixed and was told the infamous quote "those motors are junk! your only option is replace") and being that it is the HO w/ turbo my assumption is that they cannot find a motor and dont kno that they can be fixed. interior is all black leather. has factory sub woofer in rear. over all exeptionally clean car! i left my name and number. here is to hoping that i will get a call some time soon. i will be driving out to where this car is and trying to contact the owner again if i dont hear from them!
any guesses as to what i should offer the owner if they ask?


every one wish me luck!!!

Offer em a grand and they'll salivate ... if its among the weeds they lost hope. You can bring it back for a couple G's more and have a great car.. The motors are solid, don't believe anyone who says otherwise.

The Turbo is strong, fast and reliable.. People that don't understand the love of a PT, probably don't deserve to.

i was thinkink offering 650 and going from there. (willing to spend 1000 if they settle for it) its alot more than the price of scrap and i can remove the car that same day!!

Let them price it first. Or better yet tell me where it is and I'll negotiate it for you. Worst case offer $500 and go from there. You have to assume that you may have to replace the motor and fix who knows what else.

Sounds amazing. Talk it down and squeeze a deal out of them, then let the modding begin... Let us know what happens. Love to see some pics.

Yes keep us posted. I'm new here and (still not sure why) but yeah I love our PT! (2001 Limited), so much so that I'm gonna keep an eye on Cragislist to see if a PT GT turns up with a blown motor! I kinda like sleepers and man if I had a PT GT...i"d be such an A hole!

Always with signals and safe passing of course!
