Retired the stang from daily driving

With all the random problems ive been having with the stang and the tranny about to die and lock up I took advantage of the year end sales and bought a new car.
Its a 03 Neon SXT and I love it. Good gas milage, quiet, easy to drive, back seat, big trunk, and I can actually clear speed bumps!! Woo hoo
I ordered it with the Mopar body kit and dual exhaust. Only other stuff I might do is cai, dark tint, and some bigger black rims

I would have opted for an aftermarket body kit. Looks stock to me.

Well Dan, I'm sorry to hear that the stang wont be on the road as much... but that can be seen as an opportunity to make it even faster . Are you just going to make it a weekend car? Or are you gonna put that baby on a trailer and take it to the track?

Is it sitting really high in the back?


I would have opted for a Jeep or a convertible bug.

I can see it now. Twin Turbos. The stock exhaust tips are exchanged for "high-performance racing mufflers," the interior gets gutted. :no:

You'll be making the trip down to see SuperSix to let them work their magic again and then you'll be all over the magazines again.

What are the stock specs on that car?

no im talking about making it look like a NON neon.... it does look better but its still a neon... change the name and change the design a bit more you sit up way to high and the stance is really bad on it....
