Feb 18, 2008 update to the Dodge Neon ACR project car


Our workhorse Subaru easily hauled the Neon parts.

Tom and Per spent Saturday at several junkyards in the central Florida area. We heard rumors that there was a Nitro Yellow Green Neon at the LKQ in Orlando, but that turned out to be false. We did, however, get a good front bumper cover as well as just about everything we need to convert the car to a manual transmission.

And here’s a look at our budget thus far. Although we’re not explicitly planning on having this car meet the $2008 Challenge budget, we’re not explicitly not planning on it, either. In other words, “Let’s see how this goes.”

  • 1995 Plymouth Neon: 100.00
  • Transmission: 59.99
  • Console cover: 4.99
  • Cables: 12.99
  • Axle shaft: 20.99
  • Starter: 16.99
  • Pedal assembly: 14.99
  • Bumper cover: 39.99
  • Computer ecm: 39.99

Total spent: $310.92
