Default Death of a Turbo

So about 2 weeks ago my wife had an accident. I didn't think the car looked that bad but both of the airbags blew, and Geico decided that the car was a total loss. I'm not sure who was more upset that we wouldn't be getting the Turbo back...her or my 5 year old son. Knowing how much she loved that car I searched high and low and found 2 that I thought would be nice replacements. Both were 2005 models...dream cruisers I believe...the two tone silver with midnight blue, both with under 50k on them. We got our settlement check Friday and it was clear in the bank today so when I left for work this morning I gave her all the information confident that she would find one of them to her likeing. I come home from work this afternoon and what do i find sitting in the Driveway? A 2005 Magnum RT...Honey...your new pt cruiser looks a little wierd.

Have Fun with the Hemi!

Not that I know of. According to her one of the Pts was already sold and she drove the hour and a half to see the other one and the place just WOULD NOT budge on the price. She and her friend found the hemi locally, and it was a one owner vehicle. I have to say I'm impressed with the way she handled the whole situation from start to finish. Geico didnt make it easy...she had to make them reappraise the car twice before they got it right (incorrect vin and missing options)...then she went and got a killer deal on the magnum.

Unfortuneatly I will probably never get to drive it.

That's easy to fix ... just like the loose wire on a few plugs needing you to take a drive to figure out the problem!!!!
