Default Hate to do this.....

Well everyone, the time has come that I'll be selling my beloved GT Cruiser. I've had many fond memories here, learned a ton, and made some good friends. I'll be putting up pictures soon, and will be back for advice on how to sell the car. The car has 166,000 miles, GT turbo, manual 5-speed. The list of mods is extensive, and its truely a one of a kind car. Speicial thanks to Crewzin, he really works hard to keep this forum going, my new love will be a 2013 Challenger.

I would shame you If I wasn't envious. Those are so cool. Good luck with that new awesome ride.

I was almost in the same boat saturday, I was standing at the dealer waiting for my control arm bolts to be fixed.

And they had placed the waiting area next to a 2013 charger super bee......with a 292. My fiancee had to plead and beg and barter with me not to trade in my PT right on the spot and take home the bee :-)

The challenger is also gorgeous and i almost dumped $40 into one of those last year as well :-)

MAKE SURE TO SHOW US PICS OF THE NEW RIDE! car porn is greatly appreciated :-D

Cool Re: Hate to do this.....

I like to read the old posts of the ones that leave.

When they bought their pt, how they loved it, how they were never going to get rid of it........

They keep it until something comes out with some better curves, like how the new one shifts, yeah so it can relate to a marriage

I really compare us to the Morris marina club in england. Why?
They are the only ones who love the Morris Marina.

The PT is a very strange car, its styling, its appeal. Its not for everyone. Those of us who LOVE our cars. Love our cars and odds are we will be driving them for many many years after they stop production on them.

However there is not much love for them in the world. Were the only ones who enjoy them which separates us from the rest of most car owners. I have met many that "used to be" dodge, ford, chevy or honda guys but have swapped. But most of the PT owners i've met bought them for one of two reasons. "it was cheap" or "i love it".

Those of us who are the latter i believe will stay that way until we are brittle old men, sipping wine and talking about when we first got our car that everyone else hates and how cool it was then, and how cool it still is to us :-)
