You could vacuum it...

You could really use something there to eat up the space. Make sure you can rest your arm on it though for those long road trips.

I only thought the base models from 87-91 had column shifters. 92+ I thought were all floors. Without the front bench seat, it just looks VERY odd.

I've built a full custom fiberglass center console for a Dodge Neon before. It connected to the dash, came all the way back into the rear. The entire rear seat and back deck were incorporated. It was sweet, had a six disc changer, 7 inch screen, e-brake and shifter. Made it out of foam, then glassed it and had it painted. I charged him $1500, materials included that was also the back deck and sub box.
