Exclamation I hate it....

when I see a PT up in traffic, and I speed up to take a look at it, only to see it beat up, or neglected.

I see all these nice ones on this forum and the RTTB 13 pics, but all the ones I see around here are crap.

Guess that makes me an original, but it is frustrating.

I have said it before, in my area just going on a short drive you will see a different PT every 5-7 minutes. Most are owned by 60 or older so those are clean and in desirable condition. But on the other end of the age scale the PTs are a bit beat. Paint is faded and numerous dents on the body, tires are worn, and general in poor condition.
I always get surprised when I see one with nice mods that it turns out to be someone my parents age driving it. Lol

I just drove one home tonight that I took in trade from an older guy.
An 06 GT HighOutput Turbo, Autostick, with only 27,000 miles on it and in like-new condition.

I was surprised how much better it handles compared to my 05 Turbo-Lite with 70k miles. I wasn't real fond of the almond color and tan interior, but the car drives nice.

You'd be surprised how many I see coming in here at the dealership; colored duct tape holding panels together, cracked glass, black garbage bag for a make-shift window, bungee straps holding down the rear hatch, and more.

As much as I did to my GT when I owned it, it never even had a speck of dust in and out. Pretty sad really when you see all these neglected vehicles come in; even worse when they're within 2-4 years old with only 50k miles yet look like they've got 200k miles and are 20 years old.

Not a big mystery?
What 95% use a vehicle for transportation you know that!
and don't really care as long as it get run through the local car wash once a month.
Just went down the street my neighbor house. 500k house and his Cadillac DD and kept in his garage!

Anyone who neglects their car has a screw loose as far as Im concerned....... Even the most basic of rides can be tweaked and pampered with very little effort.... These are the people who kick their pets when no one's looking and should be publicly branded forthwith.

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

I don't kick anyones pets. But I have to admit that I get way behind on our ride. Spend too much time at work. After working on other vehicles every day there just isn't much pampering left in me. The best they get is when I first get them or whatever it's time to sell them. They get there oil and stuff, but pampering no..

Yes

It is amazing how people can take the 2nd most expensive thing they own, other than a house and turn it into garbage.

Of course it isnt only PTs, and with the oldest ones close to 12 yrs old, it is to be expected. I was at the junkyard yesterday and there was 99 SLT+ Durango there, these things were 34K$ SUVs in the day. It was sad seeing it sitting out in the back of the yard half trashed.
