The story of our PT Cruiser

We inherited our 2003 PT from my father in law. When he passed away my wife and I got the car and had the tough choice of whether to sell or keep it. We already had an extra car or two and definitly did not need another...

 

We drove the car up to VA from FL and on the way decided to keep it. To honor her father and as a reminder of him. It was also fun to drive and had room enough for our sons so it could double as an extra family car that was better on gas than our SUV.

 

I am a car guy and take a lot of pride in all my cars so I decided that if we were going to keep it that it was going to have to get my personal touch. Fortuantly my father in law was a neat freak (like me) and took great care of the interior of the car. Unfortuantly the FL sun ruined the finish on the car. I did all I could to clean it up but had to get it repainted and got the ugly black plastic mirrors painted and added the chrome trim it needed to really make it look good and better than stock.

 

The first 4th of July we owned it we were out to see a local fireworks show and I saw a highly customized PT in the parking lot near where we were sitting. It was a blue PT with flames and an Elvis theme. As I was admiring it the owner came over and introduced himself. We were both car guys and spent the next hour talking cars, we almost missed the fireworks show! He said he was a member of the Route 66 Cruiser Club and suggested I join. I did and it has been great. We have done parades, car shows and trips with the club. I have never met a nicer group of people. My sons LOVE participating in the parades!

 

We hope that my father in law would be proud and happy with what we have done wtih his PT. We miss him. We are glad that we can remember and honor him is this way and are so thankful for the fun times we have and great people we have met becuase of his PT.
