Default '05 GT Ragtop coming my way!

Well now! If all goes well, this Saturday, I'll be driving home in a sweet new '05 GT Ragtop! Just so excited I wanted to share the news. This will make us a 2 PT Cruiser family.
I'll miss the Z3 I'm trading in on it, but, oh well, I'm looking forward to something different. The only downside is it's an automatic, but that gives my wife a chance to drive it which she never could in the Z3.
I wonder what it'll be like on the Tail of the Dragon which I've been driving for the past 9 years.
Anyway, I can't wait to get my hands on it. Let's just hope the deal doesn't fall apart.

The Z3 is a BMW. No, it isn't a turbo. The PT GT is so it will be a new experience for me to deal with it. I'm not sure what to expect from it, but I can't wait!

Two entirely different driving machines... Just don't expect the Cruiser to handle like the Z3, close, but not as flat in the turns. I have a '97 Miata for that. Plan to do the Dragon this summer. Took it to Brasstown Bald last March, the wife was starting to get a little dizzy...

I would never make a statement like that!!!
