Thanks for looking, I'm thinking no one ever did a real 2nd gen model.

I've seen four other White Rose Collectibles, College Cruisers for sale over the past couple of years; an U of Wisconsin, removed from it's blister pack and box for about $8. A Syracuse U, a Boston College and a Penn State, all in their packaging, for about $20 each. Hope you kept your VT wrapped!

If your old man and Handy don't clean you out let me know.

Rick, you may notice none of the images you got are of the 2001 College Cruisers, they are all for Pro teams.

I had a Detroit Lions, those losers, PT Cruiser, but, I gave it to my little brother to display in his shop.

I don't suppose you've got a 2nd gen that actually looks like a second gen? I have one and it's a junk attempt at the lower grille, fog lamp look.
This looks real close to a genuine Gen2 front end:

The taillights look like a Gen1 though.

Except for the Penn State, and the Titans, of course, the others are from the 2001 College Cruisers Collection. You can tell the USC is by the 2001 painted on the hood, they all have that. Thanks, Rick!

We must have passed each other with the last two posts. Thanks for the heads up, Rick.

That's the only die cast I've seen with a 2nd gen front end. The six spoke chrome wheels I've only seen on 1st gen's not real concerned with the back lights or the odd looking spoiler. It even looks like the headlights have the wink. Amazing they tried to put that much detail into an HO sized car.

One of mine is a Chrysler promo model from 2000, the back lights are all red with a tube inside in the center with a yellow/orange light in it! Hmmmm!

We did pass each other in posts

You can get that kind of a spoiler on a Gen2 GT:





I have considered adding a GT spoiler to my PT but when you remove the stock low profile spoiler there is a center locating hole that is in the hatch and you have to find a way to cover or plug up that hole.

OK, I see now what they were going for with the spoiler.

Didn't know the company 3000toys so I e-mailed them to see if they still had one of these left, it was posted 5 years ago, after all. Turns out they had two remaining. One now, though it cost me $20 with tax and shipping (not counting the cost of a large round magnifying glass with lights so I can see it!)

Thanks, Rick!

The H.O. arrived today! It is an H.O. slot car alright, 1:87 scale, that's about the size of a tire on a 1:18 scale model, just to give you an idea.

Three details that are off are the 6 spoke wheels, they would have been stock on 03', 04' and 05' models, I believe. The tail light are just red, neither 1st or 2nd gen, considering the small size and work that would have taken I'd have gone with just red also. As can be seen above, the Chrysler emblem is on the top of the hood, it would never have fit on the front edge. . .

The spoiler is an arch, rather than having fillet edges like a real spoiler. That's why it looked wrong to me in the above photos.

But, what I wanted was a 2nd gen front end and there is no doubt what I got fit the bill. The fog lamps are a bit off, but, that's a minor thing as the front end is without a doubt 2nd gen!

Thanks again, Rick for finding this!
