Default PT Cruiser vs Stump

So I'm doing some gardening, ripping old freeze destroyed bushes out, putting new bushes in. Everything was going great until we got to the rose bush from he**. Despite our best efforts, it was too deeply rooted for mere mortals to dislodge. Two broken shovels and several shots of Jack Daniels later and after much wailing and nashing of teeth, wala, an idea! Let's use the PT Cruiser to pull the stump.

A quick review of the owners manual revealed nothing on stump pulling procedures. If a Silverado 4x4 can do it, so can we we figured (that was probably the Jack Daniels talking I think). Ok, hook up the tie downs, put the wife at the wheel and let her rip (the Cruiser that is). After two unsuccessful pulls done in Drive, the third low grear pull did the job.

Ok, granted it was a very small stump, but got to wonder how many other PT Cruisers can claim to be "stump pullers" which BTW is her new nickname.
