Default How can I make a PT Cruiser cargo ?

I have the need for a small cargo vehicle for work, I use an Astro van for many years but it's to big for me I carry car alarms, GPS modules, USB, Bluetooth, adapters and a small tool box

so this is what I found an HHR and don't like it, I hate it

My question is can I make PT CARGO ?
Anybody have try this before? i remember seeing a yellow PT wagon
The idea will be to shave the rear door handles remove the door windows and rear corner glass

Checking on Craigslist I found a 2002 with 60k that needs some repairs
maybe i can convert this car into a wagon,

I will accept any input, help, links, ideas, THANK YOU

everything is 100% dependent on your body working skills IF you were to have it all done it is probaly cost provitive but they for sure have that WOW factor

On all PTs, the rear seats come out easily, and there's quite a bit of room.
You could start by taking seats out, then get a vinyl wrap on the car.

And shave only the handles, Yes that is also a good idea but don't know how good the Vinyl will hide the rear door

It would be an interim step and a WHOLE lot cheaper than bodywork.

if you shaved the back door handles and got a nice wrap it would probaly still look like a 4 door,, but like Don said its Thousands of dollars cheaper
and you get the same effect,
now what Desielpuk did well that is the ultimate goal for a lot of PTs
put a PTzer frount end and some custopm work inside and WOW you got something pretty awesoem
but to ahve it done has to be in the 4-5 thousand dollar range id think
its body work and a lot of welding and a LOT of Shaping and a lot of block and sanding and then paint and more buffing
