Hope everyone is ok..... pretty quiet on this part of the site.

Latest news from me is most likely going to buy my bosses 2008 PT Limited TURBO (woo hoo), white with 2 tone leather interior cream and beige. Loaded with heated seats and new tires 205 - 16. He bought it from his brother-in-law with 28,000 miles who's mom bought the car new but she was unable to drive anymore so the car sat in a sealed garage for almost 5 years. Car is spotless and now has 35,000 miles... even has receipts for oil changes and a new battery. One front rim has a whack from a pot hole and needs air every week... no biggie, the turbine style wheel is still available thru Mopar dealers for $225 or I use the ole dead blow mallet and "massage" it back into position... said the whack was on the inside of rim (been there done that before). Looks like end of February we'll do the deal for current trade in value (cheap). Boss is getting a "newer" car for his daughter. Say a prayer the car becomes MINE.

H.O. or lite? Really wont matter either will feel like a rocket compared to what you have now! It sounds great, hope you get it! Are those the 15 spoke wheels?

I'm planning on taking the DCS3 into a local detail shop in Feb., they have a good reputation, and then put it back under the cover till the season starts.

What's wrong with your car?

The wheels are the factory 17 inch turbine style I now realize. The one I'm looking at is a regular turbo... that I can trick up to the point of not having to run premium gas like the GT needs. Boss said the car is real quick and a lot of fun to drive. His daughter travels a lot out of state and he said he just wants something more reliable for her. Not sure why he would think the cars is not reliable though. We all know the PT is just about bullet proof with the exception of normal wear items like lower control arms, engine lower strut.

CRUZ: Give me a call when you know you're going to be off, I'm pretty much Dr. and hospital free till March, thank goodness!

Paul: Nothing wrong with DCS3 that a real good cleaning wont fix. It was a daily driver in Florida from '04 till '18 with an annual trip to Colorado each year so the owner could visit his kid. (those darn unreliable PTs!) I just want to get it near showroom condition, not Concors d'Elegance level.
