Default What's the name of your PT Cruiser? And why.

I thought I'd start a thread that asks any PTer to post the name of your PT Cruiser.
The second question of course is the reason for the name.
If you've named your PT and don't have a graphic, I'll be glad to help you design one. Just PM me with your idea.

I use the SOOO BIG graphic as my Forum avatar.
Happy PTin', ptprice


My PT is called SOOO BIG.

SOOO BIG is named after a favorite ride of mine I had in the 70's. A VW Baha Bug I called SOO BIG. I gave it that name, because as small as it was, it could take on just about any challenge. It had a powerful VW engine, great suspension and could out run a lot of the big V8 challengers. It was fun on the road and off.

I haven't had another ride I enjoy as much until my PT Cruiser. He's called SOOO BIG even thought for a few years before I got a Florida vanity plate It was spelled SOO BIG. I had to add the third "O" because that name was already taken in Florida. Here's photos of the transition of the graphics on the name beginning with the first sketch before I painted it on the VW Baha BUG
To my first SOO BIG window graphic for my PT that I hand cut to the last hand cut SOOO BIG graphic that's now on SOOO BIG's rear hatch window and the new vanity plate.

Transition of the graphics beginning with my first sketch before I painted the name on the VW Baha Bug to the first rear window hand cut graphic on my PT to the current hand cut graphic that now matches the new vanity plate.

Ghost...cause it's white

I looked for graphics for the 1st year, but could never find what I was looking for. Not sure if I want to add one now.

I call mine the "250 PT"

as for what my friends refer to it as.... well you don't want to hear what a group of 18 year old boys call a PT Cruiser.

Maybe not a formal name for it, but some may have several names for their PT, depending on if they are working on it, or how it may be currently running.
