Default Urgent need for another PT!

Hello everyone,
Sadly, my wife crashed her PT Cruiser this week.
She is safe and sound but her baby is not.
She was hit from the side and the rear.

The car was totaled even after many phone calls begging to reconsider.
$5000.00 is what we get from the insurance.
We spent over $2000.00 to give it a nice tune up this summer...
It was a 2000 PT Cruiser Automatic (120,000Miiles) with only one option I insisted she get, ABS. This was her 3rd PT and would not drive anything else.

Anyway, I have not been on the market for a car little lone a PT.
I'm not sure what and where to look for and of course the budget is low, I want to try stick with it if I can for now.


Must have list:
Automatic
ABS
Airbags
No sunroof
Radio

Any tips will be very appreciated.

Thanks,
Desperate husband.

If you don't mind a Vert, there's a real nice (custom paint job, turbo) that just went for sale in our FOR SALE section of the forum.

2006 PT Cruiser GT Turbo Convertible

There's others on that section also and don't forget CRAIGSLIST. http://www.ptcruiserlinks.com/forum/craigslist/

Is it the head room on the sun roof? Because many more have them than not. Least what I see. If 5k is the budget. I think you can find a nice one for that.

$2000 tune up?

I guess the plugs were diamond tipped and wires made from gold!

Check out this

Chrysler : PT Cruiser GT

I found it with eBay Motors

It has a sunroof if course, not sure why that's a deal breaker, they have a cover you can slide underneath it to keep any heat out

Sweet looking car, sweeter miles, it's an automatic though so you can have it. Only stick shifts in my garage
