I don’t know if it’s just were I live or if other people get to see it all the time too, but our PT Cruisers often have airbrushed art all over them. Two that I can specifically recall are: The Pirates of the Caribbean one with the Black Pearl and the faces of the cast and crew, and the license plate read “Scllywg”; and the one with running wolves on it and air brushed on the side was something about wolfpack and running together. Good times.
^failassault at least you don’t live on the East coast because the darker race like to put a 5 inch lift on their 89′ crown vic and get a paint job that has a cereal character on it. No shit. I took a picture of one with tony the tiger. I have also seen a KFC one with a black man driving it.
I may be crazy, but I loved my PT Cruiser, and I was sad to trade it in. I had a ton of fun in that car, and it actually was well built. I’m tough on cars, and my PT Cruiser held up a lot better to my abuse than almost any other car I’ve ever driven, and I’ve driven almost everything under the sun. It definitely is a polarizing style, though. Either you love it or you hate it, but it’s definitely not a “crappy” car. At least a PT Cruiser isn’t boring, like a Corolla.
I’m a teacher and I don’t have anything to tell me if someone’s copied…you just have to use common sense. When I get a student who can barely put together a sentence on any other assignment turn in an essay that’s eloquently worded and incredibly informational, I know something’s up.
i’m so glad i don’t live in a country where people have strong and racially demarcated opinions on cars. i can’t think of anything more decadent and loathsome than judging people by their choice of vehicle. this goes some way towards explaining why no one respects americans.
@jeffreyd That was strictly speaking from my Senior High School English class teacher’s own words, of course. I realise not all areas do that. Besides common sense, there are websites that can tell you as well is all I meant.
@ckphair, mine was a 2000 Touring model. I wanted a manual transmission, but I lost my Z in a flood, and I needed to replace it quickly and couldn’t wait for a manual to arrive. Fortunately, someone else couldn’t wait, either, and I got mine right away. I had it for four years.
I find that most people who hate PT Cruisers hate them either because of looks, because they hate Chrysler, or because they compare PT Cruisers to cars that are much more expensive. They aren’t a bad car. They just aren’t outstanding in any area other than design, which is very polarizing. Personally, I liked the design.
