A buck doesn't buy much these days, but it can get you a car at a suburban Chicago dealership.

Car salesman Frank Mancari is selling slightly used PT Cruisers for $1 to buyers who spend nearly $40,000 on an SUV-style Chrysler Pacifica.

Mancari's motivation is simple. He's trying to generate publicity and business at his Oak Lawn and Orland Hills car lots while the economy is struggling.

But don't wait too long. Mancari won't say if he'll extend the same deal to other models when the Pacificas are all gone.
