Default 2004 Model Changes

There's a new Platinum Edition w/Graphite metallic paint and two-tone leather interior.

Three other new colors include Cool Vanilla, Dark Plum Pearl and Seamist Green. Three colors discontinued Steel Blue, Deep Cranberry, and Stone White.

2004 base models include an optional 16" wheel package and an upgraded suspension. Also, the chrome pkg now available on base models, and the base model bumpers are painted.

Two-tone paint schemes include black below the beltline with optional above-the-belt colors of silver, red, electric blue, seamist, and almond.

Factory flames have been discontinued, but the woodie package is still available.

Dream Cruiser Series III
Expect a mid -model year release, limited production begins Jan. 2004. New Paint Color is Midnight Blue Pearl over Bright Silver two-tone paint, the only colors offered. New interior is a two-tone leather interior and unique Blue tinted glass.

You can order 2004 models now. Expect them to arrive at dealerships around late-July to early August.

Discontinued factory flames? DOH![:0] I got purple flames on my Black Beauty...I love 'em so much that when they wear out and start peeling, I want them replaced with the same flames! Can I buy them from DC while theyre still available, My own private stash? Or should I have someone paint the exact flame design on permanently? I ain't got no money!

Ed Lim:

Those purple factory flames on a black PTC look very sharp! However, if it were my car and I planned to keep it for several more years after the factory flames started to "wear out" then I would go with painted-flames if the budget permits. My $.02. Good luck.

I agree. If you canafford a quality set of painted flames, do it! I have an 89 Shelby Dakota and they don't sell the decals at the dealer any more. Repro kits cost about $1100. The truck has a *lot* of decals and I have never seen them last any longer than 2 years even when taken care of.

Whaaaa... only color changes??!!

Oh please, monochroming the bumpers is a cost saving measure (de-contenting again).

Three things can help refresh sagging sales: new headlamps, taillights and grille. These are BOLT-ONS! I think we can all agree the overall shape of the car is GREAT but I don't understand why DC won't put any more money into this car until 2006-07.
