Topic: Cyber Monday sale: 2005 Neon, Athens Ga

It’s time for this car to move to new owners so I can focus on the Valiant IOE winner.

What you are getting is a reliable, race proven car that has had over $1000 of maintenance parts installed by professional mechanics at the shop that originally campaigned it. They spent over $3000 on the cage alone. The cage was bent and welded in by Robinson Racing, a high end shop that works on a lot of “real” race cars.
I have a stack of receipts for all the parts including new struts and springs. Their shop also parted out another neon so it comes with a bunch of spares, an extra set of 15” factory alloys, radiator and fan, engine and 5 speed conversion. Because it was raced as a charity car with the intent of turning laps, the budget was never questioned. Neons have been a recommended Lemons car by Judge Phil, Rood etc....

The car has been a lot of fun for us, it’s nice to be able to drive the car instead of having to wrench on it.
Sails through tech
Wipers work
Has a title, I’d daily it if it still had the heater to defrost the windshield.
$3750   Delivery available
Everyone’s racing season is over, but you could extend yours: A day or so left to register for December’s Road Atlanta race, or you could sign up at the track.
I would support this car at the track and my shop is 15 miles away.
Check the tire pressures, add gas, turn key, enjoy

Re: Cyber Monday sale: 2005 Neon, Athens Ga

Have not received any emails.

The car is still an automatic, the plan had been to change it if it quit working.

More details:
The previous shop ran 4 races with the car finishing mid-pack and I have done two including the full 24 at CMP making the car available to others looking for seat time in the middle of the night.
The car does well and about the only thing I would change is more negative camber for better front tire wear and front struts than are matched to the stiffer springs (Eibach Sportline Performance lowering springs.) The never ending right hander at CMP got a little bouncy on exit.
The cam lock harness is good till April 2020 and I am typing this from the Sparco Evo XL VTR Fia seat which is comfortable and easy to get into due to the cage fitting so tight to the body. It is mounted on Factory sliders to allow for varied driver heights. Has SFI rated roll bar padding, the good stuff not cheap foam pool noodles.
Service work included New timing belt, radiator with upper and lower hoses, plugs, wires, belts, new front rotors calipers and hoses, engine mounts, brake wheel cylinders, rear drums and shoes, battery, axle seals, valve cover and oil pan gaskets, transmission filter, steering dampener, sway bar links, alternator and water pump.

As it sits now it has 139201 miles. We used up the set of Duralast GT brake pads and installed the extra set it came with. They work but I wouldn’t recommend them for heavier cars or faster tracks.
The ad I bought the car from read “spare running engine”, what this meant was an extra engine was taken apart and stored in the trunk. Aside from some light surface rust on the crankshaft journals, everything looks fine. Comes with a complete gasket set to put it back together. I had the standard crank polished, will just need bearings, rings and a timing belt.  Has extra belts and another set of sway bars that may be larger diameter.
This is a decent, complete car that hasn’t been hacked into a racin’ car. The aluminum door skins up front will keep you from tearing your nomex and the full lights and turn signals keep it legal. I didn’t put a tag on it but it does come with a signed title. In the factory passenger seat you can drive someone around other than hanging off the car in the CMP fall parade. I wish I had listed the car for sale before that race so more people could have that experience, one of my favorites on the annual schedule.

That missing passenger side wiper arm has been replaced.
No place I’d rather be in the freezing rain than at a race track
The car still has full glass so your butt will stay dry and luxury front power windows. The rear doors are manual for lighter weight, Chrysler was thinking when they made these for showroom stock racing.

Re: Cyber Monday sale: 2005 Neon, Athens Ga

Is this car still for sale?  I am very interested in it.

Re: Cyber Monday sale: 2005 Neon, Athens Ga

Still available. There were a couple teams at Road Atlanta interested in it, I used it all weekend as a parts/fuel runner.
In gathering all the extra bits that go with the car I also found a brake booster and master cylinder from the parts car.
