Default SLOWEST STREET RACE IVE EVER BEEN IN!!

What a difference it is.... I was driving with my pal in his 96ish Neon.. we pull up to a stoplight next to a sunflower.. eerr.. sunfire.. and my buddy is like.. Im gonna race him... he doesnt do it often but sure enough the sunfire is ready and willing.. we wait... and wait.. till the light turns green... Both of the cars take off.. and we are neck and neck... then the neon slowly pulls away.. (never thought it would win in the first place) but after that race I am proud to be a bonneville owner.. Thoses things are turtles.. Now every time we go into town we take the bonnie..

Yeah those big wings actually make them go SLOWER!
I like watching them go around corners too. Holey body roll!

Sunfire'* aren't too bad for a low end car... I wish they have a V6 option, like the Cav'* do. Neon'* are better then Civic'* .. but not by much....

Didn't Dodge ditch the Neon this year for the SX 2.0?? The only Neons were 140hp(ish) with a 2.2L, and I heard something about a V6 option? (true?). The new SX 2.0 "looks" more sporty, but has less HP sub 140hp, and no V6 option.

Are my facts right?... if so doesn't that sound like taking a step backwards?
