    Ok guys i just got another project car and i would like to get your inputs on if i should keep this car or sell it. I got this car because the customer got into some money problems and could not pay me for the work that i had done. The car is a 2004 2dr Dodge Neon with a 2004 SRT4 front clip from the firewall forward that i installed my self, the motor was rebuilt and beefed up with a lot of money spent on the internals and a big turbo by the customer and a tuner shop (the reason why he couldn't pay me), the motor produces over 400hp not sure about the torque though, i will have it dyno tested if i keep it. The suspension also has a lot of upgrades, I painted the car bright silver mist and did some custom dash modification and painted them as well. Im not much of a dodge fan but i do respect the SRT4 and this car is a beast and hella fast not to mention that it is also a 2dr SRT4, well 2dr neon with a true SRT4 front clip. Like i said im just debating if i should keep it or sell it., let me know what you guys think. Here are some pics.

    If you enjoy the car than keep it. If you don't care for it all that much than put a for sale sign on it and flog it around until it sells. There is also the money to consider, can you afford to be out what ever the guy owed you and still be ok?

    yeah if i keep the car i'll be ok on the money end but your right i'll probably just drive it around for awhile and see what kind of response i get.

    If it's fun to drive, I guess, I always thought 2door neons were ill-proportioned but that's just my take.

    Thanks Newb, it is pretty cool and definitely a head turner about the only thing that im not to sure if i like are the lambo doors. The shaved handles that i welded are ok and the lambo doors are also welded so im outta luck if i want to switch back to factory.

    Yeah i never was a fan of lambo doors on cars that dont come from the factory with them, i agree gotta take them off their a pain in the ass to get in and out of the car. The only problem is when the customer brought me the car to put them on he bought the weld on kit and i welded the hell out of them and their gonna be a bitch to take off.

    True TurboMirage i will be removing them soon and yeah that door kit was pretty heavy plus the extra bracing that i added, probably close to 100 lbs for both doors.

    They were trying to compete with the Lancer. I think it looks better as a fodo, but that's just my opinion. Still a good looking car. :thumbsup:
