This is the ressurection of my 2000 Plymouth Neon.Its a base model 3 speed auto. It has a fully built 3 speed(Howell Automotive High Performance kit)

The car developed an electrical problem back in 2006.Since then it has sat in the backyard. I had slowly stripped parts off the car to use on my 2005. In the process i managed to leave the motor open & exposed to the elements. I had planned on doin an SRT swap,but time & money never seemed to line up.

HybridSrt-2001(Sean "The Man" Gozzi) has agreed to take on the monumental task of swapping out the stock 2.0L mill for a Magnum Motor :twisted:

I'll update this as often as i can to show the progress. So far, he has had the car for less then 48 hours & already has it lookin like a Neon again :rofl:


This is the car as it sat in the backyard

    All credit DEF goes to Sean for bustin his knuckles & gettin everything in order. I didn't get a chance 2 stop by his spot yesterday but the old motor is already out & the mag motor is mock'd up ready 2 drop in. Sean snapped some pics of that being done so when I get those I'll post um up. The interior of the car is stripped right now,has driver seat,dash & center console. The Wheels will be swapped out for 15inch steelies as soon as money comes availible for tires =)

    I just love how the neon had some dope steelies and turn signal mirrors in the first set of pictures and then has these bling ass wheels and regular mirrors :lol:

    by NeonNick925
    Those were donuts not steelies or they'd still be on there & the mirrors are the Egay 1's that I got when I went thru my ricer faze. If you want um you can have um you pay whatever shipping is from 94565.

    Please tell me someone put lowering springs on that car... backwards? The ass is wayy up and the front is wayy down.

    Awesome that it's running again though!
