Default Been Hunting 4 a PTC a while ... One found me

So I stopped posting on the board here because I didn't want to be
"That Guy"
....100 post count and never owned a PTC

But today I got some great news and it feels very promising
may have found my car. or it found me.?
no joke.

Lady says found my note on her car back in March
wasn't interested in selling the car then But kept my note and called me
yesterday
left a message
.
(ya I'm that king of guy) & and not going to lie it was Several notes
and many cars..... too many last few months.

She said give her 10 day two week she's was really busy (I get that)
said she wanted to down size the number of cars they had....
What luck I'm looking to up size the number of cars I have....
Is that fate or what.?
.
She has or will have had
a very dirty 05 Limited AT "turbo" dark blue Pt cruiser
She said has all maintenance records owned it for 5 yrs
175,000 miles Timing belt,Water pump serviced
and it's starting to smoke....... Price very negotiable
.
What do you think (feedback please)

Wish me luck........................W

How long ago was the timing belt work done? If done around 100,000, it's about due again. You could figure $1000-$1500 for that work into the negotiating price.

Said had some work because it smoked and start to smoke at start up again and cost a few hundred to fix didn't want to put any more funds into it
wanted a few hundred for the car
.
I'm thinking either turbo seal or valve guide
make it smoke at start up from what I read.
.
Turbo Replaced - Massive Oil from Exhaust
.

I haven't seen this car around in a while so....
must have parked it because of smoke
with 175,00 on it probably will need struts wheel bearings
.
no picture

Have you checked the PCV valve?

If you can get it cheap enough and it's what you truly want, I say go for it. The smoking could be as simple as the PCV valve, like Steve said, to a damaged turbo or valve seals. Even if you put another $2,000 in it, it will still be cheaper than making payments on a new car. AND, the insurance should be reasonable too!

I thought limited had leather? Those look like second Generation? Has the chrome package. That bumper cover is very rare. It's not made aftermarket.

No PT came with a rear sway bar by '05 - I forget when they stopped installing them.
4 wheel discs were an option for Limited Ed in '05.
Blue smoke could also be worn rings.
