PT Cruisers Downunder :: news and views from around Australia


Welcome to the website of Queensland-based PT Cruisers Downunder Inc. which evolved into a club from a social group of Australia’s first PT owners in 2000 and since its inception has grown and spread its wings, with members in all Eastern States and links to clubs in South Australia and Western Australia.

PTCDU Inc. is incorporated with the Qld Dept of Fair Trading, protected by Public Liability Insurance and run by a Committee elected from members, so it’s a club run by members for members. The positions include: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Cruise Controller, Show Co-ordinator, Apparel & Merchandise Officer, Fundraiser, Membership Officer and Magazine Editor. PTCDU actively encourages member participation in all facets of its activities, including becoming a Committee member. Participation is the key to a great club and a good way to get to know members, understand how the club operates and most importantly have fun!


PTCDU's internet presence includes a Forum which is accessible via this site from around Australia and overseas by both PT owners and the public (after registration). The Forum is the best way to stay up to date with upcoming cruises, car shows and club activities, as well as being an excellent way to keep in touch between events. Also available are download links for the monthly PTCDU Inc. magazine “Cruisin News”, information pertaining to all things PT (and other Modern Chryslers and Dodges), a chat room and the PT Cruisers Downunder Inc. Constitution, Membership Forms and Flyers.

PTCDU Inc. is a family orientated club and endeavours to run 2 events every month and all family members and their guests are invited to attend. The frequency and planning of cruises takes into account a number of factors, including fuel costs, distances travelled and at times the weather. Many members have added accessories (“bling”) to their cars and like to show it off, therefore the club also attends some car shows through the year to cater for this enthusiasm. Other members are welcome to attend these outings as it is still a great social day and another way to support the club and those members who enter their cars into the show for judging - in fact PTCDU Inc. has a growing collection of club trophies due to the number of members who turn up to fly the flag. Members are under no obligation to show their car, this is an individual decision, but PT’s whether modified or stock put on a head-turning display in any venue.

PT Cruisers Downunder Inc. isn’t like many bigger car clubs, it’s more like a family that enjoys getting together on a regular basis and having fun times. All members are encouraged to advise the Cruise Controller of runs and events they would like to attend and also put forward suggestions of any that they would be prepared to organise and lead. Join the club, join in the fun and enjoy yourself - you'll be glad you did!  Happy Cruisin'
