On the occasion of Detroit's annual Woodward "Damn, I Wish It Was 1965" Dream Cruise, Chrysler is introducing a Limited-production PT Cruiser dedicated to the highway that's the best. The Route 66 edition will be available later this year for $19,825 (manual) or $20,660 (automatic), including a $640 destination charge.

The car's cosmetics follow a desert theme, in a sense that it's set up for sun-baked climes, with exclusive Solar Yellow paint — with matching brake calipers and grille — solar-tinted sunscreen glass and liftgate mounted spoiler, which is perfect for frying eggs while summering in Barstow. Still, the package is meant to evoke a street cruiser from the Woodward heyday, with 17-inch chrome-plated, five-spoke aluminum wheels (plus all-season performance tires); chrome body-side moldings and a chrome exhaust tip. Inside, Solar Yellow accents highlight slate-gray cloth, and a standard AM/FM radio with six-disc CD player (and MP3 auxiliary jack) assures a stable medium for Time-Life Collections. Also standard are four-wheel anti-lock brakes with low-speed traction control, speed control and a sport suspension, assuring no one will come a' knockin' if this van is a' rockin'.
