When I first saw the PT Cruiser I thought, "Cool." A V8 powered, rear-wheel drive retro looking hotrod with useable interior space. Then I read further, front-wheel drive, underpowered econo-box. Too bad. Given the proper drivetrain the vehicle could have been something amazing. Maybe a future generation model will have the muscle to back up its aggressive stance. A story that may sound familiar to some of us.
