Nostalgia is in! For the last couple of years, Detroit's manufacturers have been looking to the past for certain new car designs, and the public has been spending more money to make their rides look "old school" classic. The PT Cruiser sparked interest in the aftermarket industry to create parts that backdate the little people-hauler to even greater vintage styling. PTCruisn.com has come up with a great woody kit to give a retro Town and Country look to the PT. Rick Bottom Custom Motorsports loaned us one of its cars called the "Beach Cruiser" (see Jan. 2002 Mopar Muscle, "Misplaced Youth") to tool around the country for a week. With Rick's help, we will show how simple this installation really is. Surf's up, dude.

Finally, whatever you do, don't rush. The quality of the job is only as good as the effort and time you put into it. Let the car sit overnight before removing the supporting tape. Then, load up the family and head to the beach (don't worry, the thing will still get great mileage!).
