Feb 15, 2008 update to the Dodge Neon ACR project car

Strike a Pose

It cuts a not-so-mean figure.

It’s sporty.
Our bumper cover has seen better days.

Factory leather seats.

We’ve now gotten a chance to photo document our $100 Plymouth Neon. It’s in surprisingly good condition, but we’ve got a long way to go–the perfect starting point for a project.

The hood suffers from the Neon-Pox, a condition where the factory primer doesn’t adhere to the steel underneath.

The right portion of the front bumper isn’t what it was cracked up to be.

But, it’s only got 135,000 miles on it. That’s low mileage for a 1995–after all, it’s 13 years old!

The engine doesn’t appear to be in that bad a shape. There are a few minor oil leaks, but that’s about it. Oh, and the check engine light is on.

And there are those fancy factory leather seats.
