Default Series 5

Does anyone on this forum own a Dream Cruiser 5? I have never seen one before besides photos. I just think it was really unique having a blacked out roof and wing. And the fact that it had new neon SRT wheels 5 years after they had been discontinued. Though it wasn't turbo, it was a beautiful last hurrah for the PT, IMO.

You could get it with the 180 HP turbo, just not the GT turbo....

Yup, just bought a Dream Cruiser 5 a few days ago for my wife.
It does have the 180hp turbo which makes it extra fun to drive.
The wife loves it and has to keep telling me to drive my own car.

Wait, are you telling me the same day I was thinking about the series 5, you joined the forum with your dream cruiser?? What a coincidence! Guess I need to check out the Welcome forum more often

Yea I thought the turbos were discontinued after 2007. If that's the case, is it possible to use a DSP to wake it up like the older turbo lites?

You are very lucky indeed to have that special cruiser!

So, one question I have: Is the blacked out roof painted or vinyl-wrapped?

Don't know much about PTs, this is our first one, so don't know about giving the turbo a boost.
We definitely got lucky with this one, it is the cleanest used car I have ever seen. The original (one) owner gave it a lot of TLC, always garaged stored and only 36K miles on it.
The roof and wing are painted.

Yes you can do the stage 1 or Dsp. But I figure that you like it just the way it is.

Please don't tell me that the 5 speed was available too. If so, I might be regretting not looking for one of these beauties when I was in the market for a new car
