In Reply to: Good "second" car alternative to Z's & M's posted by bob m on June 07, 1999 at 03:56:16:
: I know how a lot of message board respondents have a disdain for SUV's, and I also know that Z & M roadsters & Coupes just don't cut-it as a primary vehicle. I think I've found the perfect 2nd car alternative.
: A new model by Chrysler that was a former concept car and will be available early 2000 as a 2001 model year.
: PT Cruiser (PT stands for personal transportation).
: It's based on the Dodge/Plymouth Neon platform, so it's not a HOG or GAS GUZZLER, but looks very versatile and is super RETRO.
: Comes with a new 2.4L 16 valve 4cyl in auto or 5spd. I think it will be aprox 167hp with avg 26mpg & less than $20K.
: I'm thinking about getting rid of my GMC Jimmy & picking one up for my daily driver.
