If it runs, offer $800 and take it home.

can't really tell from the pics, but if it runs fine and the body is clean, it's worth a g. I'd do what Tyler said. He'd probably go for it for $800.

yeah there is another one up for $950 except its a 4 dr. I wasnt able to look at it today but hopefully tomorrow. My plan from the beginning was to offer him $800 and then go from there.

U know r/t's just have pretty stripes, a 3.94 and stiffer springs right? besides the seats......Nothing special bout them, although Id like to have an acr.

Yeah, your car isn't as special as you may think.

Come to think of it, my car by way of upgrades kicks the shit out of a stock R/T, except that you have the quick ratio steering rack and the ricer stripes.

Neons are slow, buy an evo

I can think of quite a few things that makes them better then a plane jane neon.
3.94 trans. w .81 5th gear
Dohc motor
quick ratio steering rack
stiffer springs
Seats
Leather steering wheel/shift knob
stock ecu has higher speed limiter
4 wheel disc brakes w ABS
Rear sway bar stock
Functional wing stock
Many more creature comforts

I could keep going, but my point is valid. Not trying to ruin mahifish's thread just stating the obvious that is looked over so much.
