Default Hello all, I now feel like I am home.

Hello all, my wife and I were in the market for a small inexpensive American car. We took about an hours ride to Randolph, New Jersey, to a Chrysler, Chevy dealer, we really like to look and ride of the PT Cruiser. The dealer only had 2 used one's that fit into our price range, but they weren't the age we were looking for, just as we were pulling out of the dealership I see the salesman running after us to show us one more car which was a little more expensive but what the heck. When I saw it, it was love at first sight, I had to have it. The ride home was unlike anything I have ever experienced, it was my first ride in a drop top, you see so much more with no roof over your head. Well thats my story, and I hope you guys don't mind but I will be asking lots of questions because I'm not to smart about cars but I will be asking about wheels and such. Thanks for having me guys.

I've thought about a convertible a few times. Maybe when I figure out how to mount my lights and roof mounted UHF antenna so that neither looks crappy and will be functional, maybe then I'll think about it.

Same thought process in manual trans versus auto. I haven't figured out yet how to have one hand on the steering wheel, another on the shifter and a third one on the mobile radio's mic.

So for now a convertible and manual transmission is not an option
2001 LE, Shale Green, Aftermarket Wheels, Shorty Antenna, AirRaid Cold Air Intake, Whelen Talons (amber/white) in front windshield, Whelen Talons (amber) in rear side windows, Tomar RECT25's (amber) and Whelen Slimlighter(amber) in back window. Kenwood TK-880H 45 Watt Mobile Radio, Antenex 3db antenna w/ NMO mount.
