Suddenly-Everyone is buying a Neon....

Recommended Posts

Seems like everyone around me lately seems to be picking up some kind of Neon.

I'm not sure why though. :blink:

It started with a coworker picking up a 95.

Then my neighbor around the corner picked up a 99.

Now a good friend of mine just picked up a 98 Neon with 75k for 900 bucks

(not bad, I say) for a beater.

Now he wants me to get one to replace the aged cav wagon.... :rolleyes::)

THough it did get me thinking...

The wife had a 95, which had issues to last the least..(head gasket (twice), elec.

issues, ate batteries....

Aside from the issues though, it was fun to drive (and even more fun to abuse toward the end) and it got kick butt milage...even while putting 2-3 quarts of oil in every week and a half....

I didn't realize Neons were that cheap...seems everyone is picking them up for

under a few grand.....

Beware! The Neons are everywhere! :yes::lol:

God, I remember being 15 years old durring the

1994 Winter Olympics and seeing those damn

Neon ads like every 10 seconds.

Say HI to Neon! :rolleyes:

The pillarless doors were semi cool but over all

those 1st gen. Neons were not worth their weight

in Cinderblocks. I suppose they were good

economy cars I resented having one as a runner

when I worked at Bill DeLuca CHevrolet. <_<

I'm not sure.. I think it's primer to cover up some rust that was beginning.. maybe not. I don't know.

Well, my parents' old '93 RS had a nasty problem with getting water in the floorboards, in the interior of the car. We could never figure out how the hell the bottom of our car would always end up looking like a minature Lake Michigan...

Damn, the interior stunk. :nono:

Gee, this is funny. A coworker bought one a couple weeks ago...

We know she's coming because we can hear the brakes squeal four blocks down (this is 5am in the morning mind you).

Wasn't Neon on an earlier poll list for a white trash car? I just thought of one that raises the bar for white trashdom: Kia Sephia. Not good.
