Trying to get my gf to understand that only 1 car in a 2 car garage . The rest is for toys (with wheels). Can believe the atrocity! No work area. Think shes coming around though. She now realizes use men are actually useful for fixing things. Got three of my bikes in there, just gotta get a workbench now. Then build an RV gate for the boat.

Should have gotten the GS-T or GSX! That's why it's always broken. the 420a (Dodge Neon) motors in those things are junk. 4g63 is MUCH better!

Alright! Finally closed on my first house today. "Before" picture of my new man cave:


Just bought a tool chest & No Mar tire changer, plan to set them up this weekend.

The entire car is crap regardless of which engine is in it. The 4g63 is no better than the 420. They have just as many problems. Their only saving grace is that parts availability seems to be slightly better. I didn't want my wife driving a turbo car anyway, although awd would have been nice in the snow. I just finished putting a new engine in the thing and repainting the inside and outside along with replacing all the brakes, wheel bearings, clutch, exhaust, and I can't even remember what all. So it's as close to a brand new car as it will ever get, hopefully she'll last for a while this go around. I can't find the energy to put into it anymore and it is going to start cutting into my motorcycle time in the spring and I can't let that happen

I have a vision of what mine is going to look like, just gotta find the time and resources to do it now :) Congrats on the house btw , owning is so much better than renting. I can't believe I went as long as I did without buying.

No I can tell you why its broken...... those cars suck donkey dick. Any engine you put in those are junk doesn't matter how many numbers or letters are in the engine name.
