CLAIMED! - Give Away to Good Home - 1996 4-door Fairfax VA

Post by NoVaNeon » Thu Oct 29, 2020 11:04 am

Halloween Update:

Thanks for all the helpful replies, everyone, and for reaching out to Jerry. He contacted me this morning and will take the Neon next week or weekend.

I am SO glad he'll rescue it from a pick 'n' pull demise - the lil' car deserves better after faithfully serving me for years and then getting three sons through college!

- Rich

==================================

I hate to admit it, but I've reached the point where I can't hold on to my trusty ol' Neon. I'd much rather see it go to someone who wants to work on it (or has a teenager who likes to work on cars) than the graveyard. So if you live in or near Fairfax, Virginia - or can get here - this guy is yours. Act quick, the tow truck is scheduled to take it away next week if I can't get some interest here.

Sorry that I don't know all the correct terminology, but this is a '96 5-speed, 2.0 Liter, 128,000 miles. Engine ran fine until about a year ago, when the fuel pump froze. Will also need a new gas tank, which sprang a leak last week, and a paint job.

Welcome to call with any questions or if you're interested: 703-371-9635, name is Rich, and I'm the original owner.

I would hope you have some hits. I am too far away, but I'm sure there are people closer that would show interest.

If everything except the fuel tank and pump are intact, it is a pretty easy fix, other than putting a fresh timing belt and water pump in it, assuming that is still in one piece.

Hmmmmmmmm...........tempting.

I have a sister who lives in Fairfax
My True Story:
My older sister/husband sent me a selfie of them taking a test ride in a newer Corvette. They posted, "Going for a joy ride in our "dream car"
I immediately posted back......" Why dream small, I can put you in the driver's seat of a neon for a fraction of the price".......

U-Pulls are like a box of Chocolates.......you never know what you're going to find...... ;)

I would have to say no....Fairfax,VA is a suburb on the southwest side of Washington DC. There were a few neon folks in that area who were members of the org, but like everyone else they have grown older and moved on...... :sad:

Doerun/Darian and Mark Lawson live near Martinville, VA about 4 hours away. Darian moved to Grand Rapids, MI

INVUJerry might be the next closest person, and he might take it. He would have room for it. But I am not sure how to get a hold of him other than PM, and hope he has notifications turned on...

He might be on FB though. Jerry Johnson I believe is his actual name.

Yea, that's his name.....and he's on FB occasionally. He moved several years ago from Baltimore to near the border in PA near Hanover. I talk to him every year at Carlisle. I'll see if I can contact him on FB. He doesn't post much anymore. I'm not sure of his present situation (not sure if he still has access to a trailer/dolly) , but he has a NYG which he hasn't worked on in many many years and I believe the only neon he owns...did have a SRT-4 which he sold.

Just messaged him....see what happens. He has a really big circle of neon friends so he might know somebody who wants it..... :dunno:

Hey everyone! I’m still in the neon game, I usually check the forum once a day while I’m at work and if I’m not busy.

Rich, I am available Tuesday I believe, I can be by with my van and tow dolly. I’ll give you a call!

Thanks again for the PM Tom, I still have a bunch of neons here. I’ve been getting progress done on projects left and right.

I forgot to snap a pic, but I met Rich on Saturday and picked up the neon with my 89 Caravan. Rich was exceedingly pleasant to meet and talk with. I hope you’re going to be able to focus on that mustang project soon!
