Neon — this is my race car that i run in the hornets class at I-35 speedway. It is a 2.0L Single Overhead Cam Engine. It has minor modifications. Ex. No power steering Basically a bone stock car. Only modifications within the limits of the rules.

Pros: Horsepower

Cons: Good out of turns with high rpm but slow off the corner if you don't keep the rpms up

It'll Do Ya — This car's main use is to get me back and forth between school and work. It doesn't have much horsepower. But I guess that's how it gets dang near 40mpg. The front seats are not very comfortable for long trips. The stereo is less than acceptable. Braking and handling are around average for an economy car. Overall, this car is decent as long as you can get it cheap.

Pros: Gas mileage

Cons: No power, Not much leg room in back. Poor handling.

I'd Like It Back :) — It is one of the easiest cars to drive, besides its youthful design. It accelerates steadily and is easy to custom. Yet I think the alarm system could be more efficient :) And as a tall person... I can say that the space is incredible, I never had problems with height and length of the seat, nor the steering wheel!

Pros: Confortable, spacie, cheap

Cons: Alarm system

1995 Dodge Neon — It was my first car and unfortunately I only owned it for about a month before I totaled it. Very spacious inside and had decent power for what it was. I know a lot of people have problems with Neons, but I was lucky to have bought mine from a family who took good care of theirs.

Pros: Roomy interior

Cons: Didn't own it long enough to really say

For Todays Drivers That Are Limited To A Social Life — Cheapest car on the road. Cheapest to fix, gets 10mpg on the race track. Loads of room, all my tall friends have no problems getting in and driving. Short wheelbase on it makes it very exciting to handle, no bad, just tight and wirey

Pros: Cheap, I have 420'000km on it original engine

Cons: needs to be repaired alot

Could Be Better — This car isn't bad but i would recommend getting a newer one because past 10 years old they don't do very well. it is still pretty amazing that it is still going but i wouldn't recommend someone buying it.

Pros: sedan

Cons: paper head gasket.

115,000 Running Great Till It Quit — I replaced the major parts in the fuel system. Stumped about why the fuel pump fuse keeps failing

Neon — I bought this car back in high school b/c at the time I was driving my 1977 Camaro that was getting me into some trouble with the police so I bought the Neon to drive sometimes to keep the cops off my ass. I drove just as fast as I did in my Camaro but only got like one or two tickets a year which was a lot less than when I drove the Camaro. It was actually pretty quick for a 4 banger...i took it to the track once and got a 10.15 in the 1/8th mile. Its a 5 speed standard which I liked.

Pros: reliable-even with all the miles I put on that thing it still runs fine, good gas mileage was a major plus, lots of room

Cons: not as "cool" as my Camaro was lol
