Default First ever prowler esque PT conversion

I'm working on making the rear end of my PT prettier by creating a custom rear end to resemble a prowler a bit. The PT cruiser in my opinion always needed to be more aggressive especially with the exhaust note the turbo motor has. I plan to mount prowler front wheels (5x114.3 I know) and prowler rear fenders, tail lights, and bumpers. Of course this could turn out to look like a disaster so I'm making a 3D render of my plan before anything. Keep posted.

Convertible PTs would REALLY pull it off

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

Only way you're going to find out is to do it. I like the idea and the drawings.

So fender flares in the rear, I like it.

I like it. I'm always looking for a way to take the PT back in time. I'm not much of an artist, so I traced the shape of the car, then made multiple copies so I could sketch different ideas without trying to redraw the entire car.
If you change the rear, do you have plans for the front end?

Not sure about the front end yet. I like how it looks already. Open bottom grille looks good. I just never liked the taillights of the PT cruiser, always loved the prowler taillights.

Kcabe1 has already done a lot more in his PT than most ever will. So I can't wait to see what he comes up with for this too.
