2005 Touring Edition Dark Plum PT Cruiser - "His"

Visit Little Devil

Periodic PT Updates

Plummer is our "Original" PT, joining the fleet in June 2005 and coming
to us only a few months old and with 22 miles on the odometer. Plummer
is both the youngest vehicle I've taken posession and had the fewest
miles. After being on my 'gotta have list' since 1999, the stars aligned
and it was PT time at last.

One Year With Plummer June 24 2006
Well, that was a fast year! It was a Friday, last June 24th. We arrived at the dealer at 2 pm to finalize things and do a once over. All was well, and shortly thereafter we were on our way. He had 22 miles on the odometer (the below pictures were taken at a local mall parking lot, with 28 miles on the clock). June 24 2006 closed with a very soggy Plummer (we had torrential rains!) showing 11,700 miles on the odometer, some slight additions (not yet pictured, but including chrome vent knobs & door pulls, and stainless steel window switch cover, dash speaker and vent surrounds) and not a single trip to the dealer that wasn't user error (the 2/3 rear seat jammed; still not quite sure how I did that). He's got a couple door dings on the drivers side passenger door that will have to be attended to, but other than that he's been flawless.
Two Years With Plummer June 24 2007
They say the years go faster and faster, and this seems to be holding true. This particular June 24 Plummer had the day off, as we took Little Devil out for the day. There've been a couple additions, chrome bumper strips and chrome shifter surround. Plummer's continued to be rock solid in all aspects as the amazing utility of the PT Cruiser has shown itself
again and again. Plummer now has 23,000 miles on the odometer and is as solid as when we drove him off the lot two years ago....the door dings are still there but haven't been added to, so maybe I'll just leave well enough alone...
Three Years With Plummer June 24 2008
Wow, three years. Odometer clicked over 35000 on June 23rd, continuing the trend of just under 12k a year. Plummer continues to be rock solid, but is in need of a bath....inside and out!

Mods done to Plummer!!
