New Member,200$ 01 Neon

Post by 01NeonGuy » Fri Dec 19, 2014 5:29 pm

Hey all and you read the title correctly. I got my 01 Neon for 200 bucks from my girlfriends dad recently. Hes one of those guys that takes his cars to the shop once a month for a tune up. So for the past 9 years hes taken it to the same shop and had everything done to it. I got it with new tires,brakes,plugs,wires,radiator,and heater core. He was going to junk it because a radiator line sprung a leak and he thought it was some really big deal.it also has 245,000 miles. So he said the Junkyard will give me 240 bucks for it. if you give me 200 its yours
So here i am! haha. The only problems with it are that:
The bumper and hood need repainted( I recently bought a bra for it for now)
the passenger side motor mount is bad so the motor just wobbles around
Front 2 door speakers are blown
missing a grille
the loom for the passenger side turn signal is bad
and it needs a new strut on the rear passenger side

So really it just needs a little TLC from the junkyard and itll be cherry.
Im not really gonna do much to it. Im a big time modder when it comes to my vehicles. I have a trans am i restored thats been featured in GM high tech, a lifted grand cherokee, and some other projects.

All i plan for this really are just a double din radio, Subwoofer,SRT4 hood,bumper,spoiler, and cluster
and a 2.5 inch exhaust and itll be golden. Its just gonna be a work car.

This is a weird forum so im not entirely sure how to post pics. So ill just put a link

Welcome to the neon family and 2gn!

The good thing about our cars are that the parts are relatively cheap.
A front grill should be easy to get. Rock auto has cheap stock suspension parts. The door speakers are usually paper so anything low end will be an upgrade. Motor mounts are relatively inexpensive also. Id recommend getting the lower mount also. If the engine is rocking that much both are probably shot.

Welcome!

Amazon also has some good deals sometimes. I got all four strut mounts there. It pays to shop around online.

It's most likely the actual engine mount in the frame that is bad and not a torque strut, but it's possible. Also to post pics you need to upload them to a photo hosting site like photobucket, fotki, flickr etc and then link them here.
PM me for your 03+ PCM SKIM/VIN flashing needs.

If it is the frame mount I recommend using this. I installed it in my SRT and its a great quality product:
