Considering Getting Another Car

Wow its clean as hell.  drove past it in person too, stopped and looked for rust, which there is NONE, was going to go for 500 or 600, and get a junkyard alt for 20 bucks and run it into the ground.  I've heard about the 95 vs 96+ issues, but I think I can handle it, and if need be, theres about a 10 neons in each of the 3 junkyards here locally, so I have free reign of almost any part for any year 1st gen.

Hood needs repainted, tires need aired up, but besides that, it doesn't look half bad.  Plus, if I needed to, I could repair it and flip it locally for $2K.

should i get it as a winter daily?

So this is just another one of Arro's accounts... I knew it.

And I trusted you.

Get a better car for your money bro. Honestly I've had the privilege of driving a few Kia's and Hyundai's and for the price, they are UNBEATABLE*!

sorry but its cheap, and I have another neon already lol.

And no im not another arro acount   Sterling could confirm that since he's met/knows both of us haha.

anyways, I like neons, im sorry, but the body is sexy.  I like the 2 door better, but I do like neons overall.  Plus, I'm 2 hours from the one and only assembly plant for these cars.  I can find parts cheaper than people almost anywhere else in the world.  

Also, I wasn't looking for an econobox, I was looking for a fun, balanced car that I can drive while I take my S12 down for a bit.  The neon basically would sit there until something needs done on my S12.

Get a BMW.

In decatur

Another one

750iL V12 bitch. 300 bucks

Having owned neons, yes they are reliable once you change the headgasket and water pump. But where the hell is the fun in that.

I went out and specifically bought a RWD vehicle for winter. No regular FWD winter driving for me, screw that.

Pathfinder for 550

Just hit up craigslist. This was about 5 minutes of searching. Neons have nothing for looks to me, but they do make good STOCK grip racers, Especially ACR's.. But for winter? I would choose life

I dont like beemers that much though man, plus one of those is a V12 with a seized engine lol.

I wish the Pathy had pics.  The neon is close, and I'm sorry but i like my FWD winter car.  I can take the S12 out for fun once ina  while, but considering they are predicting that our snow this year will be a few extremely deep bouts, and more ice than snow, I want FWD or AWD.  if you can find an AWD car within 50 miles for cheap, i might reconsider lulz.  How did you know Clinton was near decatur?  Most people dont even know that town exists lol.  I grew up in Decatur and drove back and forth from there to clinton almost every day to go hang out at my girlfriends dads horse ranch.

300 bucks fixed. guaranteed. BMW's are quality. Neons are not so much. Now that I think of it. I should buy it, fix the engine, and shoehorn that thing into my E30. Ohhhh now that would be crazy

Own one, I guarantee your mind will change. Plus, winter beaters are essential for keeping your fun car, well... alive.

it doesnt have to do with how they drive or work or anything, i just dont like the body style of a beemer.  The only one i like is the 2 door M3 from the 90s.

The M3 cars are just more powerful and sporty versions of the 3 series.
