Chrysler PT Cruisers return to Niagara Falls, June 21-23
Windsor, Ontario – More than 450 privately-owned Chrysler PT Cruisers will return to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls June 21-23 for what has become one of the world’s largest annual gatherings of these retro-styled vehicles. Hosted by a group of Toronto-area PT Cruiser owners and enthusiasts, “Cruisin’ The Falls II” will bring together owners of Chrysler PT Cruisers from five Provinces and 38 States, including Texas and California.
“What started out a couple of years ago as an idea for a regional Chrysler PT Cruiser gathering has grown into a major international event,” event organizer Sean O’Neill said. “We’re overwhelmed, but delighted. We’re up to the challenge and we are going to have another great PT Cruiser weekend.”
The weekend program includes Chrysler PT Cruiser-oriented fun and games, a 32′ high PT inflatable and an eye-popping PT Parade through Niagara Falls on Saturday afternoon. For the first time in Canada, DaimlerChrysler will display its entire collection of PT Cruiser concept vehicles including the original Pronto Cruizer, Panel Cruiser, GT Cruiser, PT Cruiser Convertible, as well as
the Hot Wheels Cruiser. The 2003 model year Turbo and Chrome Edition PT Cruisers will also be on display for the first time in Canada. There will also be customized PT Cruiser displays, a Mopar parts and accessories exhibit and many other special displays and activities.
“Hundreds of Chrysler PT Cruiser owners from all across the United States and Canada have incorporated this unique event into their summer vacation plans,” Pearl Davies, Chrysler/Jeep Senior Brand Manager, DaimlerChrysler Canada Inc. reported. “This remarkable gathering demonstrates the essence of the Chrysler PT Cruiser and further reinforces the fact that the PT in the vehicle’s name really does mean Personal Transportation.”
DaimlerChrysler has sold more than 200,000 Chrysler PT Cruisers worldwide since the vehicle first went on sale in April, 2000. For the 2002 model year, DaimlerChrysler Canada has added three new offerings to its PT Cruiser lineup: the Chrysler PT Cruiser “Woody” Edition, the Chrysler PT Cruiser “Flame” Décor option and the Chrysler PT Cruiser Dream Cruiser Series 1.
