Neon R/T...am I crazy?

OK. Well as crazy as this sounds to some, im thinking of getting another neon after this one. Specifically an R/T.
First gen is preferable, but second will do just fine. I just want this car, because I like the way my Neon has treated me thus far, and have no complaints about the speed and the reliability of it just yet.
What do you guys think? Anyone ever had this car? Know some stuff about it? Articles? Thanks.

Because you're a ****ing moron. If you honestly think your car looks better than a 3000GT or mine than you need to pass around whatever drug you're on.

I understand that you love Neons...but jeez....there's more cars than just Neon's and SRT-4's...

For that price you could get a better car IMO...

If I was to say something bad about their reliability or something, it probably won't make much of a difference for whether you buy one, but overall...they don't look too bad, and reliability I don't know too much about, but if your Neon hasn't had many problems, then the R/T probably won't either




BTW, you are crazy JP

uhh, i really wouldnt bother "upgrading" from a neon to a neon R/T... not enough power gain to make it worth it, if you really want to get that tiny bit of extra speed, spend a fraction of the cost in engine mods.

but honestly, i dont see ANY reason to get the same car as you've already had unless the one you have has some serious problems with it. upgrading just to get the higher trim, a waste of money.

Maybe get one of the ACRs with like 9k miles on it, and have it as a weekend car. Stick a turbo in there and its all set.
