An elderly woman in Austin, Texas got a scare when she accidentally drove her Dodge Neon into a swimming pool during what was supposed to be a routine trip to the grocery store. Security cameras caught 86-year-old Mary Lee Fine as she barreled through a fence, hit some patio furniture and splashed down. Fortunately, a steel lawn chair wedged itself beneath the rear of the vehicle, keeping Fine above water long enough for a caregiver at her living facility to wade into the water and pull her from

The world is filled with curious questions. Why are we here? Why do we hate tomatoes but love ketchup? Why do Americans love crossovers? Why are there 150 brand-new 1997 Dodge Neon models with zero miles on the odometer up for sale in Singapore? That last one is particularly perplexing. Arete Trading Pte Ltd. has somehow managed to get its hands on a small flotilla of pristine Neon models and is currently in the process of parceling them out for the lowly sum of $1,350 each. That means, if you h
PSA: If you're contesting a 144-mph speeding ticket, don't brag about your car's speed in a classified ad

Here's a nice story about a group of students from the Stockton Unified School District's Weber Institute of Applied Sciences and Technology and their project to convert a 2002 Neon from gasoline to electric. The process took 150 hours, which presented a few problems. "It took a lot of planning. Thinking hurts. Sometimes it gets so frustrating you don't really want to do it. But you think about what it's going to be like and keep going," according to Kevin Ford, one of the students. In the end,
Just because the General decided not to invest any more in the Oldsmobile brand doesn't mean you can't. This reproduction of a decades-old dealership sign is custom-built and limited to only 100 editions. Other signs available are Pontiac, Chevy, Cadillac and Buick.
It's taken about a year and a half to get the Dodge Caliber SRT-4 to market, but by September the newest and smallest SRT vehicle will be available for purchase. Chrysler's turbocharged 2.4-liter world engine will still boast a best-in-class 280 HP and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. All that power to the front wheels will be kept under control by an electronically-tuned brake lock differential that controls throttle, spark advance, and boost, while a Getrag six-speed manual transmission will round out t
It ain't no nail polish car, but it's definitely unique. What to do if you're a starving college student and your only worldly possession worth anything is a 2003 Dodge Neon? Well, there are those 1,500 Pokemon cards in the closet that you've been saving for some reason. About 25 hours later, the Pokneon (our term, not his) was born.
The Dodge Neon SRT-4 is the embodiment of domestic compact performance. Take a 2.4-liter inline-four, boost the Hell out of it, send all the power to the front wheels and watch the BFG G-Force KDWs disappear into a smoky cloud of torque steering bliss. It's a hootin', hollerin' good time and it doesn't really come into its own until you take it to the track.
Remember 'Smash that Viper!'? Well, sibling-site Adjab posted about some 'good ole boys' who are performing a similar stunt with their 1997 Dodge Neon Sport (pictured). Dodge kinship aside, the stakes hardly seem as high, eh?
