Unhappy Srt-4????

OK...OK...OK this one's good. I was pulling into work this morning and driving though our parking lot (big lot, holds like 300 cars) and I happen to see a neon with the large hoop wing. I think to myself "cool, someone in the building finally got one." As I was passing i happen to look at the wheels. I notice, hmmm, 16" regular neon wheels? Well I was walking in and was a ways away and saw the SRT-4 hood with the center scoop and the front SRT-4 bumper. Thinking, "oh, well maybe they're there winter wheels".

I go to lunch and decide to walk by it to see if it was real. Well, turns out it has the SRT-4 badge (right under the "neon", it did have the dual exhaust, but a normal neon reap bumper (no cut outs for the tips). I walk by the drivers side door and start laughing out loud ...a freekin auto... With stock neon cloth seats .....

WHY would someone go to those lengths to make people think they have an SRT-4 when they could have just bought one? This person deserves a good. I really wanna go out there and see them sometime to make fun of them for being a ricer. I wanna act like i know nothing about them and ask to see the engine. That I heard thy were a really built N/A motor.... then after they pop the hood laugh at them for being a tool.

I was having a realllllllly bad day too... But thanks to ricers and their ability to amuse people...I am in a better mood.

They came like that? Why would someone get that??? I mean it has all the srt-4 badges and everything. Dodge could have at least left those off. It's like getting the 05 stang with the "gt apperance package"....

My brothers wife had one too. I swore it was an SRT-4 until I took a look inside and saw it was an auto.
Of course once I figured out what it was I laughed for about 15 minutes.

no they dont come with the srt-4 badges, and actually the Srt-4 and the Neon with the specail package looks substantially different.

The package is called "SRT design". Dodge advertises it as a blank canvas for the tuner minded, but what they're really trying to say is "slow".
