Topic: Neon sedan — Lemons winner

OK, let me clarify one thing; this car did win the “Least Horrible Yank Tank” trophy when we raced it at Buttonwillow in August, 2009.  I don’t believe that Lemons is still awarding that trophy, but it at that time it was for the highest finishing American car.  We had finished 8 out of 100+ entries on a hot August weekend at Buttonwillow Raceway which is just west of Bakersfield, California.   

Now for the car.   DOHC 2.0 in good condition; 5 speed trans; performance suspension; ALMOST ready to race as it will need to have a fire suppression system added, and the roll cage (which is bolted in and complied when raced) MAY need to be welded in.   Two sets of wheels are available.  A complete spare engine (with good compression) is also available.   Located in Burbank, California.

While I am not particularly anxious to sell this car, I need the space… so $3,600 for the car.   I will part with the spare engine for $300, but only if it goes with the car.   Oh yeah, if you would prefer a Neon coupe, I just posted a coupe shell in the parts section.  All parts could be moved to the coupe, but that would take quite a bit of work. As I mentioned, what I really need is the space.   So, I would be willing to join with some others to form a Lemons team.   So, whatever your preference is, let’s talk.  Contct me:

Yes… that’s it.  No. 11 Team Los Cerdos Voladores (aka The Flying Pigs).  By pure cioincidence, we were assigned # 11 for our car which we promptly converted to H1-N1 (aka swine flu).  Only a few were able to make the connection. 

Not sure how to post photos in this site, but I am open to suggestions.

After two posts users are able to post links.

I use as my free upload host; I created an account so that I may control the images (delete them, etc.) after uploading them. I use the 'hotlinks for forums' button so the postures load in-line.

There are other free hosting sites.

Find a thread with pictures, and see how the links are coded.

The conspicuously marked police themed neon is chasing after the orange BMW numbered 647f. CA Penal Code for drunk in public.  Funny to me....I like it!
