Finally got my cougars replacement on the road..

1997 Purple Dodge Neon Sport
91,000 Miles
3 Speed Automatic
2L DOHC Engine - 150hp/135tq
Crank Windows, Manual Door Locks
Cloth Seats, Blown Foglight, Noisey Engine, Burns Oil, Peeling Paint, etc...

As you can see Im living the good life, NOT! What a change from the Cougar! But for $500 bucks you cant beat it I guess.

Ill get some pics of the beast this weekend and show ya all what a real car looks like!! :) :crazy:

Hey, with a 5speed swap, the it could run with you ATX v6'erz.. But there will be no modding of this car.. unless its 100% free.

Here are the pictures of the Neon.. Found that the trunk has a leak, need new taillight gaskets. Other than that it seems to be in good shape.. Automatics suck though.. especially 3 speeds.. Jens car feels like a rocket compared to this.. even though this has more HP/TQ.

Ah well. Ill put my flamer.. uh, i mean flame retardent jacket on now... dont go to crazy on me guys... 6 months from now, hopefully this will be a distant memory!

The purple is just about melina blue.. so maybe I can just pass it off as that?? haha

Can we please add a huge aluminum spoiler??? I have a home depot gift card and I would love to use it for the good of your daily drive :thumbsup:


We could even add a little tag line, "this bench dedicated to Jon and his cougar which are no longer with us"

haha, no benches for the rear of that car.. Gotta make sure i can get my money back when I gotta dump this thing.. but then again, that might fetch some more cash from an eager 16 y.o. ricer... hmm??!!

You could definitely get more money, if you include a few parts that you just happened to not install...

I'll gladly hook that up for ya if it would help...

Looks good for $500! :thumbsup: Even has the 'Expresso' package. 3 sp a/t's will make it a dog however, but if a go to work car, and don't need to put much into it, you'll get your money's work back in 6 months. :cool:
