Casper.... will i get it on the road by 2011'?

Post by Ianguilly » Sat Oct 09, 2010 5:40 pm

Well put a deposit down for A 99' white dodge sport coupe. My dad will pick it up monday i'll get better pics when i can, but now for the good and the bad

The good:
-Its a sport coupe
-Power everything ( and it all works)
-Power sunroof ( yep that works too)
-good white paint all around
-dark agate interior in great shape
-brand new tires
-5 speed
- almost no rust
- it cost $500

...and the bad:

-Engine doesn't run :sad:
-silly 90's stripes on it
-200,000+ miles


My plans for it now, just get it running.. and thats it. I want to keep this one stock cuz it is way to nice to hack up.

Hopefully i can get it running in time for "i love taco's very very very much night" up in Indy, but will see

now why would you go and buy a NEON with 200,000 miles on the motor? and your gonna get it back running? your wasting your time and efforts neons are not at all reliable. at least do a motor swap because the shell is in good condition

The definition of a NEON
A great domestic compact car whose rapidly disappearing taillights are most typically seen through the windshields of Honda Civics, Chevy Cavaliers, and other assorted shitboxes.

Hey there princess I suggest you read the o.p.'s first post again and look at all the good. When you find a cheap clean neon why not try to fix it, then if all else fails you can get a new motor cheap. Atleast rebuilding the original motor you know what you fix, unlike buying a used motor, you have to hope the seller is honest.
