  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

My latest investment that I seem to love haha

Recommended Posts

So I guess I decided to join the crowd. Know a couple guys around here that are Neon crazy and they finally talked me into one. I drove my friend Brandon's around a few times and fell in love with it. Finally found my own, Forest Green 1995 Plymouth Neon Sport Coupe. 2.0L 5spd. 3rd gear gives a little grind when shifting in because the synchros are going, but a new trans will fix that for me :(. Driven the car 4 days now and love it, haven't been nice to it yet besides washing it, and the worst I've gotten is 26.8 MPG haha :P

These make very fun Auto-X cars. Look into the R/T and ACR models, they had beefier suspension bits and better brakes.

Forgot to mention the 4 wheel disc brakes :( the brakes are amazing. The trans isn't the best but my budd's got the ACR trans and EFF that. He went from getting 43 MPG to getting 15. No thanks haha :P although I wouldn't mind going with the 2.0 DOHC, this one was converted back to a SOHC. I love the ACR components but the costs are worth more than two of my 4 vehicles parked in my driveway haha. Like I said I love it! but, they're good fun cheap cars. I'm going to put in a clutch out of a PT cruiser because they're a little stronger. Can't wait to update the car though, it's so much fun to drive and I can take corners at like 40 when I wouldn't normally take them at 20 haha ;)

How many cars do you have now? :agreed:

I'm not a fan of Neons. Had to drive my friends Neon all last weekend when I helped him move. I had the pedal to the floor and it literally would crawl, they don't take load very well. It was a 5spd man and I had a passenger and a couple bags of light stuff.

Have fun with it though, is it just a beater or what?

I personally have my van, my truck and the neon. Des and I share the Saturn but if you've ever shared with a lady, you'll understand that I don't see the inside of that car too often. The neon actually accelerates really well even with my two 200+ lb buddies in the back seat and Des and I up front. Might I add those friends are 6'2" and 6'4" and they're seated comfortably with room to spare.

This car is more of a small project car. I make 30 mpg easily and there's so much that can be done. Currently I've planned to fix the body rot on driver's rear wheelwell, new transmission and new clutch. OH and a radio.

That was the first car I ever drove. My dad had the very first sport coupe in the area. The suspension in that car was AMAZING.

yeah, I love them so much that I guess I'm buying another one. My buddy gave me a call and told me if I pay his phone bill for a while I can have his. Another 95, nearly fully rebuilt motor, newly installed RT 5 speed trans... has an electrical problem that makes it so we can't get it started haha. I'm going to pick up an aftermarket computer and do up a custom wiring harness so we can make it run haha. It's a forest green (same color) sedan. I'm starting my own neon collection I guess lol, guy I know not too far from me has owned 43 of them!

As long as he's not in-debt I'd say car collecting isn't a problem :lol:

My only real "debt" is the fact that the Saturn and the van I'm making payments on. Truck's tires are on a payment plan. Although I think I might let the Bronco go for a cheap $1500 with the brand new $800 tires on it. Our insurance just came up they want 6 months up front and with 4 cars on there, 2 being full coverage for the loans, I have to pay $2g. That's not too bad really but it's still a hit to the chest haha. I started my own business so soon enough I might be investing in 2 more trucks, but these 2 would have plows, strength and importance etc. etc.

Anywho, no debt just a collection :blink: I love it. I'm almost to the point of one car per day, except Des drives the Saturn so I don't really get to enjoy it lol
