A dealership once gave me a PT Cruiser as a loaner.  Embarrassing.  I left it in the garage the whole time so no one would see it.

When you spend all your money on ammo and tacticool gear I guess cash for a car payment is hard to come by.

So let's break it down. The plan being cosplayed here was to... intercept the gov's transport? I'm going to assume she's probably getting shuttled in a GMC Yukon/Suburban type full-sized SUV, accompanied by armed security detail.
Aaaaaamd these jag-offs are going to intercept that 6,000 pound land yacht with that thin can, then take their sweet time pulling their Walmart spec ARs, open their doors, pull their fat asses out of those nasty seats, and THEN proceed to ...shoot at the governor?
That's what it looked like to me.

The PT Cruiser is one ugly-assed vehicle so this seem apropos for the occupants if not the mission.

Sure, is a biatch car.  But many would dismiss it out of hand because of that.  It's an excellent choice.

PT Cruisers weigh 3200 pounds.

It would have more amusing if they practiced with a Smart Car.

I had to juxtapose that PT Cruiser with what the kidnappers look like, at least 2 are in the collage.

"...We gave you money to go to the dealership and buy a Hummer."

"Yep!"

"...And you got this. A PT Cruiser."

"Oh, I got a Hummer, too."

"Really? You bought two cars? Where's the other one?"

"OOOOOH, you meant that kinda Hummer. Nah, I just gave a prostitute a nice tip afterward for the custom request."

I went to the twit link and read the texts. I won't post it here so no amplification but damn! It reads like drama queens in an online game. I mean, there is absolutely no reality at all there.

It's the same feeling I get from breitfart posts. It's like they all have a role to play. They are all "I don't want to do this but my country is at stake!"

And they ain't wrong in a way. Yes, our country is at stake but not in the way they imagine it.

Where were they planning to stash the governor after they disabled her car and took out her security detail?? Or were they going to hold their "Trial By Hanging" right on the side of the road?

At one point (after 2000) I checked the prices of these things, assuming that they would be dirt cheap.  Nope, they had depreciated, but nothing like an ugly, neon-based, "SUV" should have.

/the idea was to buy a Toyota MR2 and use the PT for groceries and other cargo needs
//see Jason Fenske's 2 "car" solution
///still haven't checked to see if a MR2 has enough headroom.  I doubt there are enough around anymore anyway

In general I think the security detail for a Governor is one state trooper who doubles as a driver.  It's not like she has a full Secret Service detail.

I drove one briefly once when working (as in literally one time for maybe 10 minutes), from one house to another on the same block. The main thing I remember is that the driver's seating position felt kind of weird, like sitting on a dining room chair. At the kids table.

The plan was based on cool shiat they'd seen in action movies. They're effectively children playing at soldier.

Maybe if these guys spent less money on their guns and tacticool gear, they could step up to a Pontiac Aztek or something.

That person got paid to create that. They spent at least an hour drawing it and said " that is perfect" .

Sigh.

Anyhow, I kinda liked the pt cruiser, it reminded me of

But the specs were crap, and, chrysler, so I never got one.
No offense- we had an old Dodge pickup until the late 80s, but "freeze plugs" ? Really ? Idiots

I had a chance to kill or kidnap my governor. He was two blocks from my house with the Ford Expedition (didn't look to be armored) parked at an oil change shop. State Police security was two guys in the SUV, absent minded on their phones while the governor was pacing in the shade making a cell phone call. I could have easily murdered two very lackadaisical security guards and grabbed him for a quick getaway.

I doubt the Governor of Michigan has much better security. Well, until now.

You just buy the Spyder and drive around with your head sticking out the top.  It's the perfect solution.

One of the texts talked about walking up to her door, ringing the bell then capping her when she answered. I guess they never heard of security cameras or door peepholes.

They didn't send their best. Or maybe that is the best they can do.

me too. They come in all shapes and sizes, and yes, they are farking ridiculous and that is why I take them so seriously.

What I take even more seriously is the sheriff that supported them. That asshole needs to be in jail along with them.
