My town seems to be a freakin' NEON-MOD County.

But the neon was named properly by DOdge, each time you get it you got a "Knee-ON".

I actually had a '97 Neon Sport. Cheap, fun, reliable car that cornered pretty well. I bought it lowered, but other than that it was all stock. It was nothing to match a good dub, or even your average Honda, but for $6000, It got me through college. I'm not saying go out and buy one (heaven forbid!!), but I had good memories. Sure beat my old Ford Mustang II. Ugh.

Ah, sweet Kaiserstrasse. No, sadly, the red light district doesn't do it for me. I've been here long enough to have needed it a time or two, though.

A friend of a friend "fast and furious"ed his neon. It has a huge park bench on the trunk, custom seats, neons, exhaust, etc...

I take pride in whooping on em each and every time I see him.

Guys hold on here. The new turbo charged SRT-4 neon is 215 bhp and they claim it can do 0-60 in under six seconds. I am not sure my car can do that stock. Well if we mod ours but think about a modified turbo charged neon. I would be worried about that one

There was a big debate about this on 'Tex and the bottom line is this. Yea, they might now have a more powerful engine then what we get stock. but in the end, it will still be an ugly ass neon, it seems that now everyone is trying to catch up or even excede VW right now in performance. but it also looks like that VW is going to be a year behind everyone when they come out with the MK5. as for the "ideas" in what the MK5 may look like is a question that noone can really answer right now. Also i don't think there was ever an acutal list from VW of what the new powerplants will be. It's said that theres going to be a 2.0T. now is this the same 2.slow that we have now?? or is it like our 1.8t that we have now with .2 more displacement? Also i'm sure the new Neon will be real cheap on the inside and out. how many neons do you see today that are still in great condition from when they first came out? now compair that to dubs. that's the final answer i could come up with after everything.
