Default Robert Ackerson PT Cruiser book

Is anyone familiar with this book by Robert Ackerson, titled "PT Cruiser, Chrysler's Classic Design for a Modern Age"?
I saw this listing on eBay...

PT Cruiser: The book of Chrysler's classic design for a - eBay (item 380335951415 end time May-28-11 16:45:19 PDT)

...and then did a Google search; it is a 192 page, 2007 publication.
Prices at book seller sites vary from about $9 used (plus shipping) to $40.
Through Alibris, I ordered a new-in-shrink wrap copy from the same California company offering the eBay item. It will be $12.99 delivered.

Pages from the book can be seen here;

OK, so the book arrived on 5/16, thirteen days after it was mailed (or so I'm told). While it wasn't still shrink wrapped as had been described, it is clearly new. A nice book, heavy weight paper, lavish with pictures.

Now, I arrived late to this ParTy so I missed the advertising and commercials from the car's roll out a decade ago. The book has me interested now in tracking down some old promotional information.

I can't say that the book is very technical, but has already revealed some surprises.
Have you ever wondered why the front cup holders are in the form of a dog bone rather than two holes? The author calls this feature a letter holder.

For any who may wish to get this book, browsing eBay revealed this:

PT Cruiser: The book of Chrysler's classic design for a | eBay

Although used, at $5.47 delivered, the price is low.

I have nothing to do with this offering.

Santa,

I just copied this from my Limited Edition 2001 CHRYSLER, silver embossed PT Cruiser brochure.
