Love that color on a PT The port holes will help dress up the outside. Could also change the wheels, add dual exhaust, shorty antenna, or some graphics. Check out StreamlineDesign.com - Specializing In Automotive Graphics for some inexpensive ideas.

Interesting scenario, look at the photos of my car in my gallery.

I put the Mopar Ground Effects kit and the Mopar Rear Spoiler on my car along with new tires and wheels on my brand new 'vert and I think it improved the looks immensely, but that wasn't cheap let me tell you.

Regards
Terry

When I had a 10" antenna, reception sucked. One I have now is about 14" and works fine.

I have a 10" antenna on my car. Local stations are ok. I also have sirius so don't use regular radio much.
