Question POLL: Older or newer look?

Which PT look do you all like the best, the older look (grill extended under bumper, oval headlights etc.) or the new PT's (scalloped headlights, grill stops at bumper etc.)?

voted but I like the older headlight. the newer squiggly one doesn't do it. I also prefer the interior design. but I like the smoothie. bought my car with that look in mind before the purchase. and it had to be a 2003. almost bought a 2008 but couldn't get past those headlights, sorry to those that own them. personal taste thing

I have two of each.

Looks I guess 01-05 but to clean, I'll take the 06-10.

Actually there are 3 factory bumpers. I now have the 05 with the insert under the bumper were my 03 has it all molded in one.

Older all the way. The grill is the the focal point for me. The newer head light is the one thing I do like on the newer version. But if the deal is right I would take one.

They also had this in 04 as well as in the N/A models. With the gray bumpers, it's like 5 different ones in the 01-05s.

I'm all for the older!

Way back when they first came out I wanted to buy one and put it in a garage, leave it there for say 20-25 years. To me one of the most radical newer "old school" designs I have ever seen, although a brick, still love the lines! One of the reasons I like to keep the "sleeper" look on Mater with all the mods. The only look I changed was (when I hit a deer last year) in repairing, with the new hood, I left off the Chrysler emblem on the front. (got me .0002 more MPG from less drag, LOL!) Other than that looks bone stock.
