Default Looking for ideas for Mods?

I came across this page while surfing the net. Amazing mods to PT Cruisers.
I'm feeling a little discouraged..
I have to hide some more money from the woman!

Check out the link:

I'd settle for 10% of the money spent on modifying those PTs....

You can go retro or lower it, add factory ground effects, upgrade engine, get a nice tune, add some subs for a better tune.

Exterior wise less is more for me

Busa,
What setup are you running to achieve the stance in your foto? That stance is pretty NICE.

Cool Re: Looking for ideas for Mods?

Danny,
To me, your biggest decision is....
Whether the Cruiser is a practical daily driver, versus only a Sick Show Car.
Stuff like the Lambo doors are not really all that practical.

My problem is, even though I have modded a lot on my PTs, I really can't afford to only have show car that is "trailered" from show to show. Plus the storage costs.

If you have Gen 2, and use the rear hatch for a lot of hauling (even just my golf clubs and cart in & out of the rear hatch), a custom rear step pad is the most practical and cool mod I have ever done. And, I think that I was the first ever! I never saw any other photos of one!
On the 2005 Dream Cruiser vert, I'm going to just do protective film this time to prevent scratches.
