Re: 2002 Neon R/T

A prospective buyer brought a battery to check it out last night. The car fired right up and purred like it hadn't been sitting for a year and a half. Such a great car. He said he needs to put some money together and that he's really interested, but in all honesty, I'll probably never see him again....

Re: Finally got 19's

I debadged it yesterday. My thumbs still hurt. https://i.imgur.com/SsV256il.jpg Someone had pulled the "O" in Dodge off the back and used sliver nail polish to paint the leftover adhesive. As a result, it looked like all the letters were there from a distance, but it looked like shit up close. My so...

Re: 2002 Neon R/T

The frame is tweaked in the rear, the trunk doesn't seal anymore and it's stuck shut. The tail light doesn't work anymore, either. It's not exactly road legal.

Re: Random posting

So Ed Peters died. Holy shit. I used to talk to him on Neons.org. He was full of great info. That's pretty sad.

Re: 2002 R/T Built to Death

Yeah, the neck stuff was minor and insurance paid out just fine.

I'm trying to sell what's left of the car now. I only removed the wheels, coilovers, CD player, and motor mounts. They were all replaced with stock parts. The rest of the goodies stayed.

Re: Finally got 19's

I didn't realize non-Neon images need to go in Off-Topic. Oh well. Someone can move this if they feel like it.

It's a 2018. It has a six-speed auto in it. I think it's the same one that's in my wife's 3.6 Caravan. They feel very similar.

Re: MyNeonSaysHi Mod Log: Stone White

Not only that, but Carbon By Design (who makes the trunklids) doesn't do automotive parts anymore. They kept a few molds around for Modern Performance because they sold so much of their stuff. I don't see that lasting very long, honestly.

Re: Finally got 19's

This one is missing navigation (still has the 8.4" touchscreen with Uconnect), heated seats, remote start, and a sunroof. I think it has all the other options. The only feature I really wish it had was remote start, because it's so handy in the winter. Other than that, I'm pretty satisfied with it. ...

Notes from the new car. 1. It's strange getting used to a backup camera. I don't trust it yet. 2. I still haven't figured out the boundaries of the vehicle. I find myself parking crooked because of this. 3. I don't like automatic transmissions. 4. I think the turning radius is better than the Neon. ...

These things weigh north of 4000 pounds, so that 2.4 is particularly gutless in them. I had to have the 3.6.

Re: Random posting

The Durango had a bad ground. We found it and had it fixed pretty quick. The Jeep finally sold yesterday. It was bittersweet. It had been in the family since new and I'd owned it for more than a decade. It was well loved, but it just wasn't used anymore. Plus, the freeze plugs started leaking a year...

I do like the way they tie in the carbon pieces. I don't like how cheap they look compared to the OEM tails. It's kind of a toss-up.
