    98 Neon

    This should spark some memories. (first photo.)

    Well, I have had 7 cars and I'm 19..... >_>
    (You want to be technical I had an 86' Conquest and another 85.5 Conquest, so 9)
    In order of when I acquired them:
    1991 Stealth R/T - June 2007 - Sept. 2010 - Sold due to motor issues
    1985 Mitsubishi Starion ESi (85.5) - Nov. 2008 - Mar. 2009 - part of that folgers container you have
    1987 Chrysler Conquest TSi - April 2009 - Present. - Trying to sell...
    1991 Mitsubishi Mighty Max - August 2009 - May 2010 - Sold due to weak rings...
    1989 Honda Prelude 2.0S - May 2010 - April 2011 - Good beater
    1998 Dodge Neon ACR CPE - Oct. 2010 - Present - Start of another Addiction... StarQuest 3S and now Neon...
    1988 Mitsubishi Mighty Max Macrocab - Feb. 2011 - Present

    The Stealth. My pride and joy and spent so much time making that car mine and doing it RIGHT. Stereo install replaced all speaker with pioneer and wired it all down the center of the car... Never got to drive it but one day after I got my license due to timing going and then I spent this year 5 months going through 4 engines and all were great when they were put in, even a REBUILT one.. the car just didn't like me or something so I sold it. I just sold it about a month ago too... I still hurt from it.


    Then after the Stealth blew up on me in the beginning of Oct. 2008 at the end of Oct. I found the vehicle I have ALWAYS been looking for which is a 1985 Mitsubishi Starion ESi, rare as can be aside from 89 Starion's factory intercooled, LSD, ABS, 5 lug wheels.. Got it from mass. spent a month rebuilding the top end in the dead of winter and she ran great, and drove it for about a month and then 5 days after my 17th birthday I just got out of school and I was turning into my friends driveway, brake lights work, turn signals and all.... Well apparently there not enough for a SP-ED student to see and realize to stop or slow down... No instead she rams into the drive side of my car spinning me 180 and totaling both cars.... not even a week after I turned 17..... I parted it out and still have the parts.




    Then I got my brother's (twinturbo93) friends 87' Chrysler Conquest TSi and drove the car for about a month or so before it blew up from too much fuel... (got into the oil) still have that car...


    Then I got a 1991 Mitsu. Mighty Max for the 2.4 to drop into my Quest to make a 4G64/63 hybrid. Well I ended up daily driving the Max for about 6months until I I seized the head in the winter and replaced it and it smoked since so I sold it...


    Then on the way back from a vacation my parents wanted to stop at a auto auction to get me a car (I payed for it) and I ended up with a 1989 Honda Prelude... Honda's suck.... tho it's not a bad car.. quick for being a SOHC 2.0 carb... sunroof but still slow.... I got owned by a 4door neon...

    I have been looking for a "new" car since the beginning of may when I sold my truck and finally after months of searching I found it... FYI I can't have a Neon... I have to have an R/T or ACR, well searching for a turbo anything a 1998 Dodge Neon ACR popped up on craigs in DE so I called the guy talked about it and took the 2-3hr drive to go get it... but on the way my brother (twinturbo93) convinced me to look at a "custom show car" neon R/T.... guy wanted more than the other guy did for the ACR and i couldn't even here it run besides the fact it was hit in the front and ugly blue, primer missing things here and there and the leather interior had to be repaired.. So we ditched it and went to the ACR and at 2-3 PM on Oct. 23 I was on my way with a 1998 ACR. Best money I've ever spent and I have yet to regret it...

    Now for pics and details...

    Neon is NOT stock

    The Mighty Max was bought with the money I received while at boot camp for the USMC. I came back and 2 weeks later I saw it for sale and didn't hesitate, I missed my old Max and well this one is 95% my dream truck, only thing I'd rather is a 4G64/4G63 T hybrid. Anyways, 5 spd 2wd lowered on Eskies, with a 2.6L Turbo. I have to tear it apart though and get it ready for carlisle All-truck nationals.

    Damn already just starting with bashing....

    Neon is stock so that's just you not liking Neon's, sorry not everyone has your taste.
    Apparently Stealth's are the only thing you two like.... Sad sad life.

    How is the neon stock with a pretty red valve cover, upgraded ignition, battery relocate, and apillar gauge pod?

    And I remember that Stealth. The craftsmanship of the hood looks to be really good, but jesus christ why isn't it on a Shittiac?

    if i wasn't able to own/drive a 3/s...there's plenty of other vehicles i'd still drive. a NEON is not one of them:

    c5/c6 corvette
    hyundai genesis coupe
    2011+ mustang GT
    2002 camaro SS/ pontiac WS6 firebird
    370z

    hell, i'd even take a garden-variety LANCER (not evo) over a goddamn neon.

    you're right, not everyone has your taste. the rest of us have GOOD taste.
