Done that hundreds of times...even going as far as folding the seats all the way up and pointing towards the red levers to show that they can be removed. Putting the rear shelf in all the different positions and letting people sit in it. The PT was a real eye catcher back in 2000/2001 when there wern't a million of them out there and people were always asking about it.

Even recently, while getting gas, a fellow asked how I liked the PT - I did the same as you did, rambling on....

hahahah, been there Jax. Everyone asks how I like it and what it's like driving it, poor bastards. I campaign for Chrysler without even realizing it.

I have done the same thing so many times I have lost count. What I really like is when somebody at the lumber yard sees me loading up on 8 foot boards. They have this doubtful look on their face. We also get those funny looks and comments when we go camping and people see all the camping gear that we have and question as to how we get it all in there. Just love it. I know of three people that bought one on just the raving that my wife and I have done.

Same here! I think it's like any other product or service that you're happy with - word of mouth is the BEST advertising!
