Hello, my name is Ramiro Favela and I thank you for looking at my neon.
This is a Neon Essence Page
My neon with custom homemade Lamborghini door conversion... Show more.
I have been a member of Team Ignition for going on 4 years now, and I attend several events with my many friends I have made in the group over the years. One such friend I met has started a Neon only club in the San Diego area (Neon Essence) and I am a proud founding member in his group as well.
I can't seem to find any stock or REALLY old pics, car isn't exactly photoworthy when its dead stock, but I can describe it, I owned a 95 dead stock SOHC, MTX sedan with the optional rear child seat in the rear seats. The child seat is kinda destroyed now cause it was REALLY lame, looking to do something really cool in the hideaway spot in the seat. I picked up my neon in a little TJ auto place for $2300
Anyways this is the oldest pics I could muster up at the time, the car is fitted with a R34 front bumper, Black Widow Side Skirts, and a Buddy Club rear bumper, all are fiberglass.
As you can see from the second pic there, I have a custom dual muffler exhaust and mustang tail light conversion that me and my father did.
Here's the neon getting a good scruffing up before it gets a new clean set of clothes.
And here she is dressed in Hot Lava Orange.
Next I addressed the tire issue, I live in TJ, and the roads there...well to say they are aweful is an understatement. My kit has since suffered a bit because of them :( I was rolling on 16"s, and I liked the look a lot I wanted 17"s, so I found the exact set, just in 17"s and upgrade to them.
My dad helped me do the mustang tail conversion as well as helping me go above and beyond in creating a custom set of lamborghini doors, and while my design is a secret, I will show you how they look.
My engine bay is a bit of a disaster, but if all goes well, I should be able to upgrade to a magnum in the near future, but here is the engine as current, it has a HAI, 52mm TB, mopar PCM, and battery relocation. You can see the headlights are Halo projectors with clear side markers, and Carbon fiber canards on the bumper.
I went over to Kersten's girlfriend's house one day and we did a mini photoshoot, got a few good pics of my car, his Dodge This 1, and his girlfriend Erin's VW Thing.
You can see my kinda see my interior from that day but here is a more recent shot of the dash.
I just attended a show in TJ with my Team Ignition friends and won first place best domestic in the wild category. Here is pics of my car with new graphics on it and me and my friends getting our awards.
More will come as more progresses, but I leave you with a nice side shot of my car (pre graphics) and a shot of me on the road. Show Less
