PT Cruiser Fans Flock to Las Vegas for 1st Annual Cruise

    LAS VEGAS - PT Cruisers will converge in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Mandalay 
Bay Resort & Casino for the PT Cruiser Club's 1st Annual Las Vegas Cruise to be 
held July 27-30, 2000.

    "The many activities of the event include a Friday cruise to Hoover Dam
where there will be a private hard hat tour," said Michael J. Challis, Club
President.  "The Harley Davidson Cafe, on the heart of the strip, will serve
as our host for the Saturday morning cruise-in," Challis added

    "The cruise is going to be a blockbuster," said Manley Bland, the club's
Southwest Regional Director. "We have cars and fun loving fans coming from as
far away as Canada and Japan."

    Customized PTs will be on display at the various gathering spots of the
Cruiser loyalists.  The event is open to all visitors and represents a
superior opportunity for future owners to talk directly with the drivers of
this hot new retro car from DaimlerChrysler -- the car that has the driving
public overwhelmed.

    The PT Cruiser has produced the biggest buzz among car enthusiasts since
the introduction of the 1965 Mustang, according to Challis.  The retro-styled
car has the markings of a 30s Chrysler Airflow, a London taxi, and an early
woody wagon.  With its tall grill, rounded fenders, and slanted hot rod
roofline, it has been termed a "home run ball" for the Chrysler group.
