I found this Dodge Neon for under $2,000.It says it has some damage, and needs some new fanbelts and all.But it's the only car near my low budget.Should I buy it?

I found a better one.Here's the link to all of it's info.
Ebay Neon

Is it worth buying, or should I get a 240SX at the same price?
The 240SX is a little older, and in a little better condition, but it's on the other side of the US.

That neon looks like a good deal to me, but what do you plan on doing with the cars? Just drive or..?

Smoke-I would go with the 240sx at the same price but thats just cause i hate neons.

Arther-do you think that mx-6 would be worth it with that high of miles?

Does anyone read these posts. He's going to drift with a Neon. Would that be with the super special RWD Neon or were you planning to do it in reverse? Some peoples children.

I love how people go on forums just talking shit because they are some ultimate internet geek. 2,000 some posts and all you can do is talk shit instead of giving some input? Wow, you are amazing. Anyways, I would probably go with the 240sx also cuz neons are gay.

And this is your version of giving input, he shouldn't get the Neon because it's "gay". My input, if you were smart enough to figure it out, is that buying a Neon to drift is pointless, much like you.

you cant technicly use the Rear wheels to drift in a FWD car but people do drift FWD cars in those drift events now. its been done and is being done, and i personaly dont like people who say you Must only use a RWD car too do so, Hey whatever is fun for you right? But yes vw you do provide some good intelligble posts but, its like you love adding little sarcastic bits here and there. Come on man Anyway ive heard horror stories about the earlier neons and the engines in them, if where you id stay away from them.
