The poor Chrysler PT Cruiser. It started off so well…a tiny Plymouth Truck (yep, that’s what the PT stood for) to match the Plymouth Prowler in that weird 1930’s renaissance retro look deal that they threw as a Hail Mary before DaimlerChrysler dropped the guillotine. When they hit the dealership lots, people were snapping them up left and right. Then they figured out the downsides of a repackaged Neon…tight working room, a great look hindered by most of the Neon’s available engines (the 2.4L turbo cars were lively) and the questionable quality control from that era of DCX. If you loved them, you really loved them. If you kind of liked them, then trust us: you probably dodged a bullet.
Picking up a PT Cruiser off of a dealership lot is completely and utterly at your own risk, but this “loaded” example with the tricked out paint is in need of a new home. If the original paint (which is either dark blue or black, but we can’t tell) was left alone it might be worth looking at. But we never knew you could get “Holographic Sprite” colored flames added on! You readers did a great job of selling that kind-of-a-Lincoln limo, let’s see what you can come up with here!
