Darn, $7.45 down the drain. Other update....please don’t flame.
Ran across an 07 PC Cruiser Convertible in what appears to be really good shape. An old guy that had a body shop changed the head gasket. It is going to the dealer to be inspected. If all in good shape will buy it for $4,000. Has 122k miles on it and lots of new Parts, plugs, starter, tires, radiator and new cap, timing belt plus a few others.
Darn certain not a 500E nor a mx5, Spark EV, new body Fiat 124 turbo or a rx8. Well this PT does have a turbo, won’t normally buy a used PT that way but for the price figure will cross my fingers and hope no issues. It does whistle when cold and maybe just a bit when driving slow. Dealer will advise on that point tomorrow when inspected.
I will check in on the site now and again. The Fiat 500e is indeed a hoot to drive.
Hoping this ‘old school’ looking PT convertible will give me the ’fix’ wanted for top down riding even though not a sports car. Cruising around in a drop top with top down early morning or at sunset is not a bad way to live a retired life I figure.
Thank you everyone for you thoughts, input, suggestions, and kindness
Thanks, for a bit there I wondered what the heck that rotating circle disk was for lol. Anyway, though I paid about triple what this guy paid for it I will place the toy car by my pc monitor and enjoy it when it arrives. Seems like a cool color.
I stand corrected: They did get the airdam right (in E-only white, with no body-color lip)
The matching tailpipe-less rear panel is also correct, & yes now I can see it's pretty close for a tiny model. Definitely an E with color matched Abarth wing & mirrors*, and custom wheels installed at my local PepBoys (skirts removed for their lift). I believe orange was also exclusive to the E.
* I'm pretty every white airdam matched a white wing & mirrors.
