ITS ALIIIIIVE!!!!

Looks like I dredged it out of a swamp. (Not quite so severe, but it's filthy and all the orifices are growing moss and algae.) Passed emissions without a problem, got it rego'd today. Just needs some TLC and it'll be a nice grocery-getter again. I strongly dislike the automatic transmission.

Judging from the picture, it looks like dirt (not rust)... and it should clean up quite nicely. :)

I agree with Bill... Another Neon saved. :thumbup:

Car threw a P0340. Searched around and it seems to be fairly common. Bought a replacement cam position sensor and I'll install it later today. White neon is all cleaned up, had to remove the lights and pull everything apart to clean everything. Runs good, I've been driving it for the last month or so about 60 miles a day, no issues, it's the lowest trim model so everything is manual, which is kind of nice, truth be told. My old Integra is power everything and, as it ages, I find myself replacing more and more and more.

Anyway, it is working out well so far, I need to get another key made, it only ever had one, so I've been nervous about losing it, even though I haven't in the 6 years of owning it. Anyways, I still have a set of R/T sideskirts that I want to put on it, I'll probably paint them satin black, keep the car pretty monochrome, white and black.
