About

This car was bought by my mom back in 1999, she drove it for a few years. She got tired of not having power windows, so when another neon with power windows came up for sale she bought it and my dad took this one over. It has been rear ended once when my mom was driving it and after getting that fixed my dad put it into the guard rail a few years later during one winter. It continued to be my dad’s daily driver until mechanical troubles forced him to park it. The car then sat for years in my grandma’s driveway and my parents had given some thought into junking it. As I got older, I got more attached to the car and I was determined to save it from the junkyard! After months of convincing, I was finally able to convince my dad into fixing it up. The car got, new brake lines, a new head gasket and a complete top end engine rebuild. We are still doing little things to it here and there and for now its become my everyday driver. It will never see another winter, but over the years the paint has really gone downhill. Someday I plan to restore/ mod it, but for now it’s a fun little daily driver!!
