Hey everyone, I own a 2001 Chrysler Neon LE 5 speed manual in Steel Blue paint. It has factory optional 4 wheel ABS disk brake package, rear sway bar, alloy 15" snow flake rims and A/C. Other then that it is base no power windows or locks but that doesn't bother me.. extra weight and things to go wrong. I bought the car as a commuter, learn to drive stick and learn to do my own mechanical work car. I've owned it for almost 4 years and put 35,000 km (21,747 MI) on it, the odometer sits at 245,000 km (152,000 MI). I paid ,$1,300 CND for it (probably around 1000 USD) and put about $2000 maybe more back into it. When I bought it the car was a piece of shit due to neglect from the previous owners but I fixed it up over the years and ever did some basic performance mods. It drives pretty good, the handling is actually really good. The car itself is very slow but I can throw it hard into corners and hold speed well. I must say over the years the car has really grown on me and I plan on keeping it as long as it runs.. and engine runs strong, I bet near stock HP, I ran a 0 to 60 in 7.9 using a iPhone app as a to test(seemed accurate). The car still has some problems (high speed vibration, slow oil leak and slow trans leak) that I plan to take care of and once I do fix all the problems I might even do some more performance mods (not that I think my car is going to get a ton faster I just wan't it to be a bit more fun). Here is a list of what I've done so far.

Mechanical work done
Timing Belt
Water Pump
all motor mounts
both lower control arm
ball joints
wheel baring
Water leak fixed
rear struts
front sway bar linkage

performance work done
Eibach lowing springs
strut tower braces front and rear
Remover air intake resonator
Drop in K and N intake filter
polyurethane sifter linkage bushings
Blue tooth Head unit, speakers, amp and sub

Work to be done in near future
New Passenger side Axle CV assemble (part is ordered Should fix vibration at hwy speed)
R/T or after marker header
Exhaust/muffler
under drive pulley
and any SRT or RT junk yard parts I can find Rock ON


Edit: rims are 15 not 16"

Thanks! I live on a island so it has lower mileage (no where to go) and in the northwest so it never gets that cold so it has very little rust, if any.
