I've got them on a website

It's not as cute as an egg, but it has a certain Beastly charm!

And here's an interior:

It's very spacious.

LOL! Had to say it.

I think the PT is better being towed then towing. There are lots of good deals out there on trucks right now -- or you can get one of those very cute tear-drops. A PT would be so perfect pulling one of those -- much more keeping with the vintage style.

Good luck!

Jane
I hope your'e not laughing at my PT! She is very sensitive to this sort of thing.:)

I love PTs!

They are very cute cars! I love the vintage look to them, and have driven one and I was very impressed -- very fun to drive. I just really want to sell the Allegro so I'm using all my best salesman tatics.

You should really look at the tear-drops -- I've considered them myself -- they would look wonderful with a PT, particularly if you got one painted to match.

Jane

I think the comment about liability driving the tow ratings is right on the money. In our victim mentality here in America, we always reserve the right to make somebody else pay for our own stupidity. So, the ratings reflect a max tow load that the manufacturer is reasonably certain will protect them from liability. I has nothing whatsoever to do with the physical capacity of the vehicle.

It is also important to note, however, that not only the rating is dictated by litigation. So is your insurance coverage, and your personal liability in case of an accident. If I am driving a Dodge Cummins Turbo Diesel Dually that by some fluke is only rated to tow 500 lbs, and have an accident towing a 950 Scamp Std, my insurance company will deny the claim quicker than a heartbeat, and I'll be left holding the bag.

So, Ken, your PT will tow a 13 just fine and perfectly safely, but the risks are WAY too high in case of accident. Don't do it.

Point taken Paul. I'll just have to find me another vehicle to tow with, or go to a teardrop like Jane suggested. Jane you have been trying to sell your Allegro for quite a while haven't you? I remember you from when this forum started up. So how much are you asking? Just curious, I don't think I can afford it since I just bought my cruiser.

mid twenties

I'd be very happy to sell it in the mid twenties. I've been listing it in the high twenties because I know people like to get a deal. But if someone offered me in the mid twenties, I'd take it.

I've seen people at dog shows where they are towing an egg behind their motorhome. They live in the motorhome and use the smaller trailer as a kennel/grooming area -- very cool. If I had the money, I'd keep the Allegro and just buy an egg in addition. Unfortunately I have more plans then money, like most people.

I have website with pics: http://enoj.tripod.com/allegro.htm

Feel free to pass the link on to anyone you know who might be interested. It's in really good shape, very clean. I keep everything in great working condition and very clean.

Thanks for asking!
