For the last six years I’ve caught a lot of crap for my PT Cruiser. Onlookers have labeled it a sissy car, chick-mobile, geriatric short bus, and my personal favorite, denture wagon. To be perfectly honest it may be some of those things. However, what it does do better than most folks give it credit for is haul a bunch of crap around.
With trucks either in use elsewhere or in some sort of flux, I’ve depended on the Cruiser to do the heavy lifting from day to day and the last few days remind me that, laughable or not, it works. This weekend I was transporting cinder blocks back from my dad’s place and then running a bunch of 8’ stock – with the front passenger seat laid down – back to the shop from the big box. I didn’t have any trouble or at any time have to break stride to get “creative” with the packing.
So as long as the vehicle remains safe to operate, make use of whatever you’ve got and don’t let jackholes tell you what you should have done it with. Trust me, in the end it doesn’t matter one damn bit what you made the trip in, as long as your payload gets where it’s going — this comes from a guy that drives the “geriatric honey wagon.”
