For some reason that particular stretch of road tends to have a lot of old unusual trucks for sale.

My favorite sighting there was the lifted smart car on knobby tires.

Everyone likes updates. 

Iris car: Nothing has changed, Duster dropped me off some parts for it :D 

R/T: nothing keeps on going on. 

Strawberry: Sold to my neighbor, he loves the little thing, might buy his old truck from him

Strawberry v2: Did plugs, had E3 plugs in it runs much better till It didnt. Had a crank sensor/plug fail so got a no start condition, plus found the alt belt is upside down.

Found a belt upside down, and car quit running. This was cake, the crank sensor was not fully plugged in.

I'm not sure I've chimed in on this thread yet but it's great. 

I never had much love for the Neon's when they were out, but it seems as though they're actually super capable cars - I definitely notice them more now. 

Funny story, I think one of my friends shared a picture of your Iris car from Radwood (perhaps?) before I saw this thread. I liked it then and still do.

In reply to Gunchsta :

Thanks man, that car has been a labor of love. 


Buddy of mine cleaned up the interior of the V2 last night, it no longer smells like stale weed and teenage kid.

In reply to Professor_Brap :

It shows, it looks really tidy. Unfortunately "stale weed and teenage kid" is the exact image most Neon's conjure to me. That's what is so great about the iris car being as nice as it is.

Please don't take that as an insult; I'm in the process of restoring a civic which is the poster child for terrible automotive modifications & ownership :)

In reply to Gunchsta :

Its not a insult, the only one that hasn't smelled like weed and crappy air freshers is the Black R/T, the Iris car smelled like old people and all the rest have a similar smell.

I will add Neons to the list of possible Juggalomobiles with Sunfires and Escorts that look like ZX2s but aren't ZX2s

Well more odd hackery. 

Went to leave old mans and first time all day that I had the windows up, and smelled a little fuel. 

Drove my 3.1miles home and checked fuel line in bay, it was good. Crawled under it and saw this.

Pulled the cover off, and boy did I find a suprise. 

Plugin has been ordered, and fuel filter is ordered.... The line is seperated where it meets the fitting. 

Soon as i took the cover off it started peanut fuel. 

$30 in parts and we will be good to go again. Image

Going to try to get the Konis on the Iris car this week along with the sway bar.
