thewheelman Posted December 17, 2010 Report Share Posted December 17, 2010 I really don't want to raise the hackles of those who are discontent with the "limited" production of the GT 500's. I live in Western Kentucky, not exactly a hotbed of automotive activities, and I can count on both hands the number of GT 500's I've seen on the road. Seems like every time we head to Gatlinburg I meet one come or going.....but I digress. A few years ago, my wife had enjoyed driving and riding in our Ranger pick up just about as much as she had wanted to. We had borrowed my son's PT Cruiser for a quick road trip (gas mileage) and found it very comfortable and a good driving little car. Upon returning home, I sold one Ranger and went looking for a more comfortable replacement. I stumbled across a 2002 PT Cruiser Dream Cruiser Series 1 car. The Series 1 cars are Inca Gold, have special wheels, interiors and other features. The color is so bright and unique that my sons nicknamed it "The You-Neek-Wah". I still contend that on a sunny day with the car and wheels clean, it'll knock your socks off--those wheels were designed, I guess, to catch the light and reflect it in a way that was just beautiful. Anyway, Chrysler intended to build 7500 of these dazzling little cars. Ours was #701, I believe. Chrysler, for some strange reason, did not number them sequentially, and wound up building less than 5000, if my memory serves me correctly. Now, here's my point. Today, at the bank, was a PT Dream Cruiser Series 1. About 2 weeks ago I saw two on the road at different times of the day. While I owned mine I spotted of at least 4 others in the area. I sold ours to an older couple down in TN and have even spotted it at the mall in Clarksville! Yet, the GT 500, with many, many thousand more on the road, are a rare spotting! What, am I living in a PT vortex????? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
