The second gen R/Ts and ACRs are excellent cars. Easy to work on and usually pretty reliable.

"The Long Journey Home: A Pictorial Homecoming of a Neon R/T":
 

So Dusterbd13 contacted me about his R/T, and I am a sucker for cheap Neons here we are. 

I ended up shipping it for shear cost, was the exact same as a fly and drive with fuel. 

First guy overloaded himself and didnt take it. Second guy pulled through like a champ and here we are. 

1998 Neon R/T with a reman 2.4 out of a Stratus. 

Mods: 
3 core Aluminum Radiator 
3.94 Pt Trans 
Koni Black with Eibach Springs 
Poly swaybar bushings 
Unorthodox UDP 
Ported intake and throttle body 
mopar performance Tri Y header 
2.5in Thermal RD exhaust 
Seat heaters
2nd gen console with usb outlet

This car is REALLY good out of the box, be ready for some mods and some other odds and ends.
