Not really my thing. But to each his own. I'm sure it's very rare. The good hood looks out of place. The chrome strip down the hood would look better with this.

Brings back the days of real chrome bumpers. Would like to see the rear end to see if they did the same there, as well?

Almost the same as a friend of mine from the other side of Florida but without the bumper...

Not a fan, personally, but hey! Whatever makes you feel good about your PT is all right with the rest of us.

Aspire to inspire before you expire.

Thumbs down Re: Last supper

Eccchhh, the hood and running boards are to much of a good thing. I like the retro look, but Ya' can add too much and spoil what you started out with. Big scoops are great at ice cream parlors not on retro Pts. The hood would work a lot better with just a chrome strip down the middle, circa 1940's, 1950's. The running boards look like an out of place afterthought. After running boards were designed to be hidden under the lower door bulge in the late 30's, it seems a contradiction to see 'em hanging out there in the open. Sort-a- like, "Hey Mom, I can afford a set of aftermarket running boards, Look at me!"Same with the hood. I like the 40 Ford headlight surrounds and the fender and grill work. The bumper is also righteous. I hope the theme is carried to the rear. All in all lots of things I like but truly overdone. They didn't know when to stop.

I think that applies more to women than it does to cars.

Nice find Bubba!

The hood in your pic appears to be the KEYSTONE 'Good Hood'. A GREAT hood on most PTs but not this one. Sadly, these haven't been available for years.

It seems to be begging for a different hood treatment, like one of these......

I don't like it very much but, as most have said, to each his own!

It reminds me of an old Citroen (which I do happen to like) but it looks out of place on the PT.
