Heh, did you paint your turn signals and fogs? My best friend just did that to his '97 Neon, it looks sweet. What engine mods did you have before? Nice car...

Not a big fan of Neons (other than the SRT-4), but yours isnt too bad looking. :)


Good luck with your build up.

cause they're so turned around from what I'm used to - exhaust manifold is in the back not the front - a lot of wires everywhere...I dunno. The engine bay of my brother's car always confused me.

I'm not sure why, but I heart econoboxes... It's an affliction. The Accent was one of the best looking out of the old line up, but now it seems every manufacturer has a tiny offering to the US market. About fvcking time!

i love the neon. i had a 98 plymouth neon too and i loved that car. i totaled it out when i got hit by a dodge ram. she was so sweet, white, coupe, 5 speed, oooh sweet car. i am trying to fall in love with my accent right now, its just hard cause you cant play as much with an accent as you can a neon.
nice pics, thanks for sharing... and bringing up some memories for me :depressed:

The accent suffers from one major thing and its HP, If it had 115-120 it would be fantastic

here are some other pics




Thats from 2004
