Exclamation I actually saw one!

I saw an owner of a PT GT that took care of their PT!

I couldnt believe it!

It was the same color as Nitros, chrome spears, chrome fuel door and a full oem Ground effects kit.

And it was in real good shape and CLEAN!

Wish I could have snapped a picture but I saw it going through an intersection. I saw the color and side skirts, turned around after going through the intersection, saw the chrome fuel door and 5 spoke chrome rims.


Finally I saw a PT owner that takes care of it properly!

And it has been raining for the past week too!

Are people that lazy in the area you live ?

I don 't see that many PT's in Belgium, but 9 out of 10 are wel taken care off. I guess that's because in Belgium only someone that really wants one, buys it. Not those people who "just need a ride quick".

I guess so, but I have rather high standards.

Most people use them as commuter cars and treat them as one.

It is very rare for me to actually turn my head to look at someone elses pt.

Most of the time I just glance at it and smh

I see a car covered in road salt that needs a good cleaning. The front bumper has some paint chipped off, but I wouldn 't call this a worn down PT.

Lightbulb Re: I actually saw one!

I see the chips, the lights are busted out the front,the front has dents and the paint is mismatched/faded



My guess is the current driver is not the one that tore it up.

Guy probably lost it in a divorce and the x wives stepdaughter in her new marriage drives it now, it's pretty beat up.

Or it could be his daughter tearing it up. i would hate to see the interior.

Ouch. That front mod is torn up real good. Probably doesnt swap it out in the winter. Uses it as a plow :/

I've got a full body kit on my Mustang. But I at least have the decency to take it off the car if I'm gonna drive it in the winter :/

well, in his defense, at least the stickers are on the window and not on the bumper. and the headlights look pretty clean.
