Just wanted to say hi to everyone. I am ordering my black SS in about a week after my loan goes through. I live in central Ohio and work as a Diesel Technician in Columbus. When everyone starts getting their cars hit me up so i can come hang out and do some meets.

I figured I'd hijack this thread and say hello since im new here too. I currently own a 98 neon, and will be in the market for a new car shortly. I've narrowed it down between a cobalt ss and a colorado. car vs truck, hehe. but i figured id join the forums and learn as much as i can about these cars as everyone else does!

Hey cool! My girl drives a 98 Neon! Hey if you are gettin rid of that car and wanna part it out lemme know, cuz she might want some of your stuff. She wants to fix her car up a little. Hers is a 2.0L SOHC, 3spd auto, sedan. I tell you what, you take the air duct off of the filter and romp on it that lil thing sounds like a beast (sounds a lot faster than what it really is) LOL! What is yours? SOHC/DOHC, auto/manual, coupe/4???

4dr, mtx, sohc.

blckSS, hope u enjoy the car. I think black will look awesome(of course im biased) I just hate washing it, and Everything that shows up.

cobizzle, heres a couple pics, i'll probably part the stuff thats easily replaced. throttle body, fuel rail, lights etc, and probably leave things like the bodykit, udp, springs, that kinda stuff on the car. i only look to get about 2500 out of the ol' gal :eek:

Man that sucks cause she actually WANTS that body kit! I'll get her on here to see if there is anything she wants: lights, etc. and I'll let ya know. Oh and what kind of throttle body is it?

P.S. How much do you want for the entire car, just curious??

only thing with selling the body kit, the paintjob was done last fall, my car was slate color so the stock bumpers wouldnt match if i put them back on, no stripes either.
right now id try to get 3grand out of it. but when it actually comes time to sell it, it'll be even less because of additional mileage. i have 102,XXX right now.
the throttle body is a 55mm mPx. 42mmcame stock on mtx, autos had a 48mm i believe. 60mm is the largest but any bigger than 55 and youd have to port the intake manifold to be effective. The rims will prolly be sold seperate as well, i have 5 of them, and new tires are going on tomorrow.

Really? $3000 for the whole car not parted out? Im kinda interested. I'll be commuting to school next year (hopefully) and need something in decent shape thats good on gas, and the price is kinda in the right range too. I could have that in just a few months, or get a small loan and pay it off before time to look for an SS. Where are you located??

Hey, 1Low, just seein if you were still on the boards any time? Also one more question bout your neon: How long will it be before you plan to sell it? Cause if its within the next several months, I seriously might be interested.
