[OT] Trip to AC in NJ

    A friend of mine called me late last night to see what I was going to do today, and said "If nothing...we're all going to AC tomorrow". I agreed. Woke up early, washed my FX (assumed I was driving...as always :LOL: ) and met them uptown Manhattan.

    After a couple of minutes they showed up and said (with a smile) "you're not driving today", and pointed towards a PT, that was parked on the street, and yelled "rental baby". After realizing that they weren't kidding, I asked them if they're sure...unfortunately they said yes. Said I should save the miles on the FX, hesitantly I agreed.

    As soon as I got into the car I asked them again if they were sure, because it felt like I just sat on a park bench and the interior was so cramped, and to think a round trip to AC is about five hours :err: They said for me to man up and stop complaining, that it wasn't so bad :confused:

    To make a long story short, after dealing with back ache, tears (due to financial loss :LOL: ), stiff legs and frustration due to lack of power in the PT Cruiser, they all nicely asked me if I could drive next time...and I said...MAN UP BOYS, IT WASN'T SO BAD :rofl:

    Actualy it was really bad. How can I put this... bad seats, bad stereo, no power, bad road handling, etc. Now I don't know if this was just a base model beat up rental (11,000 miles on the clock), but I was surprised how uncomfortable it was.

    Last year I took a trip to W. Virginia, about a thousand miles round trip. Left NY late Saturday afternoon, drove straight, slept there over night and left for NY the next morning. I wasn't even tired after my trip when I got back home. To each his own, some people might love PT Cruiser's, but they're not for me, this is just my opinion :)

    I just wanted to share my PT Bruiser experience with you all and say I looooove my FX :dancing2:

    by the way, I know what you mean about driving a different car, especially if it's "inferior" to our FXs... I've been home with the folks... and, sometimes I'll take their Toyota Solara to run errards... cuz I don't wanna put the miles on my FX... Let's just say, I'm usually in a hurry to get home...

    That's a good opportunity, you should take advantage of that, hotels aren't cheap around here. Let us know if you ever decide to come to the Big Apple Ken, we'll have a meet or something.
