I just want to start off by saying that it is a honor to be apart of this community and that I hope to see that it continues to grow!

A little about myself my name is Kenny i'm from Pittsburgh, pa and i am obsessed with my neon. I was looking for a car when I came back home from basic training. I originally wanted to get a late 80's early 90's IROC-Z Camaro for a toy car, (still looking) but then I was thinking about how I needed something was very easy on gas and would be a decent daily driver that would turn heads. Shocked
I found my neon (still haven't named it yet) on craigslist got $800 with only 71,000 Miles on it original owner was a old lady... talk about getting lucky it hasn't been inspected since last year been busy with working to be able to out take the car to get inspected.

Looking to do some upgrades with the engine, interior and exterior and other things as well. I'm still new to this and would like a lot of assistance from the community. thumbup

Here she is a little rough on the exterior keep in mind that it was owned by a old lady and it is a ATX sadly so far I have only done is

-replaced 02 sensors and thermostat
-monroe quick strut suspension
-driver and passenger controls arms
-new brakes all around disc and drums

next will be the timing belt, accessory belt and the serpentine belt.
after will be the sway bar (still deciding on what a good size bar would be for it) ill have to create a wishlist and would appreciate all the help I can get on this!

It's "not that special" as far as power adders, nor resale value (it's a neon...) but it is certainly a special vehicle there were only 87 made total and they marked the reentry of Dodge into NASCAR.
