PT Cruiser, gaudy mods galore

The Personal Transport Cruiser was introduced in 1999 as a 2000 model under the Plymouth nameplate. 10 years and more than 1.3 million units later, Chrysler stopped production. During that time, it spawned a shitload of special editions, none of which were particularly special. Of notable mention are the turbo and the good ol' woodie version.

This does not give me wood

You can't deny the success the PT Cruiser had. At one time, Chrysler moved more than 150k of them a year. Unfortunately, some of them fell in the wrong hands. Its retro styling 'inspired' people to try and make it even better. Here are a few examples for your viewing displeasure.

These are fairly extreme examples but we've all seen one with stick on port holes and chrome moldings.

As you said in your introduction, Chrysler sold 1.3 MILLION Pt's. One of thier best selling cars. Yes you have shown some of the "extreme" customizations, but in the eyes of the owners thats what they want, and were is the harm in that?. No other modern car has spawned so many car clubs. The clubs are in every part of the world, they are a way of getting together having a good time and in some cases raising money for charities. So to end on, put your brain into gear before opening your mouth on a subject that, quite obviously, your know absolutley nothing about.

Yes the owners are entitled to do whatever they want to their cars but it doesn't mean it looks good. The PT was a huge success. It and the New Beetle pretty much started the whole retro styling.

You are right that I don't know much about PT cruiser car clubs and what they do. I'm just pointing out that some of them are particularly ugly.

Ask a former PT Cruiser owner if they're still driving a Chrysler product. The answer will be NO! The PT Cruiser, like so many Chrysler products, were born and bread lemons! Why are imports so popular? That's a no brainer!
