Question Horn Cover in Center of Steering Wheel

Hi, I've got a 2001 PT Cruiser Deluxe. Favorite car I've ever had.

Today when I went to get in to drive it, something looked wrong.

I've been snoozing all day so maybe its my imagination but in the center of the steering wheel it looked different. I remember a round smooth plastic piece, gray colored with, I think, a chrylser logo on it. What I now see is a tiny metal piece in the center with an upraised logo and small holes around the edges of the center horn pressing area. I've had this car for 3 years so you'd think I would know but I'm honestly not sure - is there such a piece as I describe or is it my imagination, the heat, and not enough strong coffee when I woke up?

I searched the web and every picture of a PT cruiser steering wheel that I see is like what I have now, only my memory strongly says there was a cover there. Or is my memory hooking into some car I drove years ago??

Please help!

Thanks! Yes, I've got the earlier one as your first pictures shows.

It's clearly my imagination filling in an imaginary horn cover where there was none by reaching back into my memory. Strangest experience I've ever had - I'll have to remember to drink some stronger coffee when getting up from a nap.

After thinking about it for a while, I think I know which car from the past gave me the memory of the non-existent PT Cruiser horn cover. I had a 62 Rambler, cute little boxy car, back in the early 70's when I went to college. Subconsciously, driving the cruiser must remind me of driving the Rambler years earlier, which did have, I think, a horn cover like the one I imagined was missing on the Cruiser. Of course the two cars don't handle, or look, the same, the subconscious association is purely subjective - a feeling of calm unassuming driving enjoyment.

Thanks again for helping me clear this up.
