PT Cruiser Cruising

At any car show you will find cars in various states of existence that will range from quite as they found them (meaning still rusty, etc.) to those restored to better than factory new condition.  But there will always be sections where the owners have customized their vehicle to their own tastes.  Such is the case with this one PT Cruiser that I came upon at the show in the – you guessed it – Chrysler PT Cruiser section.  Needless to say the owner took the word “cruiser” to heart and went flat out with the customizations and modifications.  I asked her if she surfed and her reply was that she had done some short boarding but it’s a bit difficult to surf when you live in Indiana.

I highly recommend that you talk to the owners at these car shows if you get the chance.  They are always happy to show off and talk about their “babies” and what they have done to get them to the condition they are in along with the history of the vehicle.  It is amazing the dedication they have that includes time, money, elbow grease and traveling to car shows to exhibit and compete.  This owner showed me all around her cruiser pointing out this detail and that…and I do mean details!  The little toy Cruiser car she had next to the real one was purchased from Ebay and she hand painted it to resemble her car.  Shhhhhh!  Don’t tell anyone but the toy car started out as a pink Barbie car.  And the mint condition Beach Boys album?  Wow! This is one cool cruising Cruiser.

Thank you for sharing your Cruiser with me, Joy.  Keep on rocking…

    What fun to get your car all tricked out like this. Yeah, they are rather proud of all their work and should be. Cheers =)

      They do put some serious work, time, and money into their vehicles. 🙂

        Most definitely. It is a labor of love.

        I’ll say! Many of them were still fussing over and polishing their cars during the show.

    I love the old cars and the great restorations. I often watch the Mecum Actions on Spike TV just to see those vehicles again!

      I’ve never seen that show will have to see if they show it here. You will love the next two days cars then (hopefully)

    Nice photos. I’ve never liked PT Cruisers. We had to bower one once. It was an awful car to drive.

        But did you catch the jingle there?

      • #14 by Timothy Price on July 16, 2015 - 11:00 am

        Hmm! No! Is it from a commercial?

      • #15 by imagesbytdashfield on July 16, 2015 - 3:54 pm

        Yep! Sara Lee commercial

      • #16 by Timothy Price on July 16, 2015 - 5:53 pm

        Sorry! I don’t have TV, haven’t for over 30 years, so unless it’s one of those pesky commercials on Youtube that I can’t skip after 4 seconds, I haven’t seen it.

      • #17 by imagesbytdashfield on July 16, 2015 - 6:03 pm

        It’s on Youtube and it’s a jingle from the 60’s.

        I’ll have to look it up.
