I see it's one of the extremely rare PT Cruisers with a 6 cylinder, according to the ad.

That "parts" car looks pretty nice on the inside and out. It looks too pretty to cannibalize. Did you check to see what it would take to replace the engine?

I know it must be upseting to a few....what I'm doing to this car.
and my post's................................... (grammer & spelling)
.
.
.

.
If realy wanted to fire up some members I would post pictures like this
Look at those welds (my god)
Don't worry its only a test pipe
.

.
.
.
you want to get fired up...
Go to the local PnP
every cruiser in there with nice seats someone has used to clean their greasey hands on and use the percial tray to put in the mud to lay on.......some people
...................PTC no respect even in the Bone yard...............
.
.



The prpl cruiser:
It is nice in and out.
I beat it out of the scrapers hands by days and a few more dollars.
This car has value to me In parts
it will help me keep my cruiser on the road longer
and as I read post from other members Instead of asking question
that may seem redundant to most .
If I need to know I will try to find answers
But not by taking my car out of service..... By going to this car and learning
maybe answer some questions

( Whats a johnson rod.?)
(What is the Torq value on the muffler bearing.?)
I'm not asking.!

. Today I got 3rd of my investment back
somebody open the door and cracked my L rear tail light & missing clip and the Pass side leaked
the used tail light( with clips) go for about @ $45 ( including shipping)
I also desulfating the battery $65
......................and learning info I get from dismantling is priceless.

Learned about removing the battery today and notice the major Ground point under airbox
if I "man hand" and brake a part I will not be doing it first to my car
.
If I find someone that needs a part to help them keep there car on the road
It's a win.!

{..As per board rules I'm not actively selling parts in this thread...}

Yes it nice But in the end it will keep my car going and maybe a couple of others.......It keeps giving and giving ..it not being discarded
more like recycled slowly
.
Pictures
.

.

.
today drove my cruiser to work and injoyed it.! At one point I had to
let it all out to get out of a spot ..didnot disapoint
..................................... if you know what I mean

I go full throttle at almost every opportunity when the roads are dry.

Seeing how clean that cruiser is underneath makes me want to cry. This is my 2002. K frame is DEAD.

Those crossmembers are weird. My car is in between the two. The one thing that is super rusted is the "box" portion of that crossmember. That looks to be the worst part of Dan's car. Wrenchin's car isn't boxed. It just has the two tabs going from front to back. On my car the boxed portion is horrid. You can stick your finger through the metal, but the actual crossmember and the tabs are okay.
