My guess is you are talking about the Hunter House in Birmingham. Good burgers but you may not like the prices. . . then again, what's cheap anymore, and we are talking Birmingham.

I'll need to know the day and about what time to see if I can meet you.

Wed. 11:30 is fine. It's actually about 200 feet north of Maple (15 Mile Rd) on Woodward. Bit of trivia for you, the road that cut through Birmingham, before it was engulfed by Woodward, was Hunter. Hence the name.

Been there & have eaten their Burgers, very nice sort of like a Top Hat or Bates, Brays, .Smallish Gut Grenades

On another subject... received my $32.00 Chrome/Silver Grille strips yesterday & what a Disapointment, Cheap Rolled up in a Gaggle, upon closer examination they are about 1/8" thick & would stick out or above the actual grille....looking very cheap & unprofessional or amateurish...


I do not recommend...& will not be putting them on my PT...

You might look at this kind of grille set up that ptprice has on his PT, looks sharp





I think he got it off Ebay.

That's the same one I have for the '04, just have not put it on yet because I'm not sure if I'm going to do some paint work first. They run about $140 and, like everything else, are getting harder to find.

If you decide to go this way Chuck and can't find one on e-bay let me know and I may be able to point you to one.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-NOS-OEM...sid=m570.l1313

I made them an offer and they accepted $230.

When they were still available through Chrysler, both parts totaled almost $700.

Some of the grille overlays that are available require some modification to the stock grille, then are applied on top.

This setup completely replaces the upper and lower grille and they are thick, substantial metal.

I really like how the lower section shows up, as with the stock black plastic grille, you don't really see it, but just a big hole.

Made a low ball offer to the same place and they accepted..... new grill just like you have, should look pretty sweet on my 08 silver gal.
rckstein, CRUZ and the3dgm like this.

Good score

You'll have to pull off the front bumper cover to remove the old lower grille and install the new one. But it's not hard, just a few fasteners
