Few vehicles made as big a splash on the market than Chrysler's PT Cruiser did when launched in 2000. It was one of the first "retro" vehicles, along with VW's New Beetle, that put some fun back into the entry-level compact segment.

Having lived a longer life than many predicted (it was scheduled to be discontinued last year but continued on for a lack of Chrysler product), the PT Cruiser will meet its fate on July 9, when the last one will roll out the door of Chrysler's Toluca, Mexico assembly plant, says the Detroit Free Press.

The Toluca facility will be retooled to build the Fiat 500, fittingly a retro-designed vehicle that has already taken Europe by storm and should do well in North America too.
