The Woodward Dream Cruise is an annual automotive jaunt through Detroit's northern suburbs that typically draws some of the most classic/rare/exciting American cars out of the woodwork. Chrysler is hoping to capitalize on this event and hopefully trick people into thinking that its new PT, the Dream Cruiser Series 4, is one of those great American vehicles. The effort will be made through sleight-of-hand, mostly, as the Dream Cruiser is essentially a PT Cruiser Turbo Convertible with Deep Lava Red paint, a color-matched top, different wheels and the obligatory extra badges. Otherwise it's mechanically identical to the regular roofless PT Turbo, with a 220-hp engine and Getrag five-speed. 1,700 limited edition Dream Cruisers will be produced, each valued at $30,260.
