I've always took it to be the body name.

I'm 26 and I think I'm the youngest PT driver in my area by at least 15 years. I haven't actually met any other drivers but this is an estimate when I see them on the road.

Same here.

My mom, she's 65, has no problem to let me borrow her minivan when I have to transport big things.

She then can use the PT to transport herself around in the meantime.

She's so proud and keeps saying to everyone that this is her son's car, bragging about how it's a great car.
