I happen to love it, and always thought it would be kinda cool to have a convertible in bright canary yellow with wide white sidewalls.
Unfortunately, most of the women who would otherwise be inclined to date me, wouldn't be caught dead in something like that.

The gold one I stopped looking at when I saw they still had the exhaust at the rear but put fake side exhausts.

Gregg, that P/T Cruiser coupe looks to my eyes a lot like the GM-H Chevrolet, Pontiac, Oldsmobile and Buick Fully Enclosed Coupes (or Slopers as they were locally nicknamed) of that "just pre WW2" era. Oh and BTW, thank you for the link to it. Holden's also built bodies for Chrysler products in that era including 2 and 4 door Dodge and Plymouth Slopers. Even the fastback Fords here were given the same nickname and the 4 door Cruiser has that old world Dodge/Plymouth 4 door Sloper look about it and the 2 door even more so. I've read somewhere that the first few prototype Ford Sloper bodies here were actually built by Holdens as they had the production processes already down pat.
The Cruiser though has more of a GM-H Sloper look to it with its less steeply raked rear panel and no protuding boot/trunk area. I'd like to see a Holden Cruze Coupe with this kind of styling as it seems to symbolize what some feel was a less stressed time in our history, although with WW2 just around the corner and everyone around the world knowing what was coming I'm not sure if it really was that much less stressed. Those days, just as today, were a time of great automotive advances and it's good to see most manufacturers cuing their styling back to those lost days.

The PT Cruiser sold really well for the first 4-5 years it was available ... I believe Chrysler miss-handled it later on ... I'd love to see them bring it back with a coupe version much like the original concept "Cruizer" ...
