Here it is, my baby...the car i wanted since i was 16 year old. The reason why i got into Neons in the first place...my 2004 Dodge Neon SRT-4 in Electric Blue. I like to think i saved her for a life of abuse as from what i can tell after spending time working on her and bringing her back to life, shes had a hard life. Now i have much more to do to her but shes alive and kicking, ready to walk the streets once again. When i got her the engine was replaced by a horrible backyard mechanic who butchered the install, the turbo was puking oil, the alternator was smoking, the tires all flat and pooched, the rims nearly all destroyed...interior was dirty as hell and the k frame was welded in unspeakable spots...the exahust has be straight piped 3" with cat removed and is rusting through on some spots...and much more...she was driven hard and put away wet...

Since i got her in January i replaced her heart (engine) gave her new tires, resurfaced the rims, a FULL DEEP detail inside n out (sadly its crappy on the roads to its already dirty) resurfaced the headlights, and flushed all the fluids excluding the brake fluid wich is to come. Next up it will be getting new brakes all round then a new suspension.

Once she gets back to OEM state the real fun begins. But already im having a blast, cant contain my smile when i sit in it and drive. Or the smirk when you put it to the floor and hear that 2.4 turbo spool up and go...and she goes! Now if only the city would fix there dam roads! lol

But its good knowing shes in good hands now...and will be well taken care of if not the best taken care of Neon in this City/Province.
