Default Time To Store The Cruiser

Over the last month I've considered taking my Cruiser off the road and storing it. My intention is for the Cruiser to be my Grandsons 1st car when he starts driving in 3 years. Well last Saturday I purchased a new car (well almost new it's 2 yrs old with 10k on it) and tomorrow the Cruiser is getting stored.

The Cruiser has been one of my favorite cars and I wanted something that would be safe and dependable for my Grandson when he starts driving and the Cruiser is it.

I'll still take it out from time to time in nice weather and maybe replace some of the remaining original parts and if you've seen one of my last maintenance/repair list there isn't much left to replace.

When the time comes if my Grandson doesn't want an 18 year old car that's Ok. Since my retirement is getting closer I'll just store it a few more years before turning it into a hobby car and drop a turbo in it

When the time comes, I hope that your Grandson would love to have and drive your PT, and that he can still be cool with his friends that don't have a car

Just think about it, the car would be as old as he is

Interesting... I imagined you far younger. Not saying you're old, just thought you were in school for something Auto related

Nope not too old just a bit seasoned soon to be 55. but if you ask my wife she might say I sometimes refuse to grow up.

I was a mechanic until my early 30s when I decided to go to college and get a business degree. I've been working in finance ever since. I'm currently a Sr loan underwriter for a nationwide finance company.

However once a mechanic always a mechanic and as odd as it may sound I find working on cars relaxing even though some of the jobs, like pulling the engine on the Cruiser most people wouldn't consider relaxing.

Wow, I feel exactly the same way. I worked in shops through my teen years into my twenties before I got "edu-macated". Nowadays, I'd rather be working on a car more than driving one. It's very relaxing and fun. I guess once you've got grease in your blood, it's there for a lifetime.

I found that most TEENS like RED PT Cruisers.

Many of us adults like red PT's as well.
