I’ve been keeping my eyes open for a few months now looking to replace my work vehicle (an old Ranger pickup) with something that I could haul the whole family in … or at least myself and the boys. The Ranger still runs okay and still looks okay, but when school starts in the Fall I plan on taking both boys to school in the morning before I go to work and the Ranger only holds one driver and one passenger.
I considered the extended cab small pickups for a while but I quickly realized that those little jump seats just aren’t very safe in crashes. So I started looking at small cars and mini-SUV style cars. I wasn’t looking specifically for a PT Cruiser, but this one popped up on Craigslist (free online classified ads) and the price was right so I bought it. It’s a 2005 base model dark blue Chrysler PT Cruiser 5 speed manual transmission with under 50,000 miles. It’s in really good shape and it’s a very nice looking car too! I’m very excited!

Midlife crisis? Possibly.
Cool looking car? Definitely!
Cool looking, but also a very practical car? Absolutely!!!!!
So, does anyone want to buy my old Ranger pickup truck? 🙂
