BB, you got beat by a NEON?????

It'* STILL a POS. Even if it is fast until it blows up or falls apart next week. AND it still looks like a bug......as in INSECT.

I don't think anyones disagreeing about it being fast, just saying that it'* a fast POS. I personally don't care if it'* the fastest, most powerful car on the planet. I still wouldn't touch it. Too little, too "Neon". But that'* me. I'll take a big, luxurious, even slow if neccessary, car over a little compact anyday. Or a truck, once the yunguns are grown and gone away.

hmm... oh well... one of my friends just sold his 1973 charger with a built 440 for like $7,000 i think, that was one strong car... i guess you don't care cause it was a '73 and not a '70...

The SRT-4 is very un-neon. If you read up on the car, just about everything is changed. Suspension is upgraded, tires upgraded, different motor, different seats, different interior, there is really not much left to it to call it a neon other than overall shape. I do not know for sure, but I believe that the 2.4 liter might be a Mitsubishi engine.
