My Awesome Neon — This was the first neon I really 'decked' out. I loved it, to bad it just didn't last... I put an intake, exhaust, short shift, body kit, rims, springs, gas struts, UDP, TB spacer, and a whole lot more to make it exactly how I liked it...

Pros: Looks, performance

Cons: I don't have it any more.

1997 Plymouth Neon Highline 4-door Sedan — Great gas mileage, but crappy quality. Handling was OK, acceleration wasn't too bad surprisingly (it was a highline edition), overall it was only kinda fun to drive. The sunroof was nice. Rims did wonders for this car (not the crappy ones in the picture). Good car to get around town in, but not one to show off and brag to your friends about.

Pros: Gas Mileage

Cons: Quality

My Back-up Car (lol) — This car has taken me through hell and back. I got it after driving around a '91 Nissan Stanza for some time, so to me it was great at first. The body is nice, and it's spacious for such a small little car. However... It has given me problems upon problems. Although for the past hmm maybe 2 years, or 3 even, it's been fine- no problems at all. It's an ok car for what it is, but watch out for insurance!!!

Pros: It's spacious for what it is, and once it gets rolling, really goes.  Reminds me of a little roller skate. lol  It's 'cute' which guys might not like, and since it's red and considered a 'sports car' (can you believe this?), insurance companies charge me MORE than they do for my Grand Prix!!  If they only knew what I did with that G.P. they'd rethink this whole thing...  hehehe

Cons: Geez don't get me started.  The fuel pump, upper and lower 02 sensors, crankshaft position sensor, the on-board computer...  These are all things (and more!) that I've had to replace.  Not to mention the car has been stolen once, (complete audio system taken), and then broken into again (stereo taken).  But hey this car is there for me on the rare occasions my G.P. breaks down, so it's all good.  :)

Neonschmeon — Neons are easy to modify, they are easy to work on, quite fun to drive whether its your daily driver or your week end cruiser, many decent used parts (stock and after market) can be found at the u-pull-it junk yard and its economical to drive.

Pros: it's mine!

Cons: not powerful enough (YET!)
