StrangeUsed

Found for sale!
They got the color wrong, it is listed as white.

Other 2, guess miles do not matter much.

Just a little humor.

Yeah that 'color' is just a little off.


It's SHO time!

Having bought a fair number of used cars over many years: unusual to find a used car lot where the help knows anything about cars. Mostly BS!.

The giveaway in it being the wrong pic is the miles. A Taurus at 207k miles isn't surprising, a PT at 207k would be astounding.

Back 10 or so years ago, a friends wife just had to have a PT Cruiser, so they bought one. It spent 1/3 of its life in the shop with various electrical and mechanical issues no one seemed to be able to solve. They got rid of it within 3 years, lost big $$ on it, and bought an Escape, which has been a good car with only a few minor problems.

Sad, but true. Not much difference between selling cars or carpet.

I have a neighbor who has a very customized PT Cruiser - 400HP engine (@ max boost), suspension, body, audio. Only comes out for car shows in the summer. The rest of his cars are Hondas.

Or car parts for that matter. It wasn't all that long ago that at least at a parts counter you'd find someone that had a semblance of a clue about what they were selling. Most places now the clown couldn't tell you the difference between a wrist pin and a roll pin.
