Ben's 1995 Dodge Neon Project
This is my 1995 dodge neon that I wrecked so I decided to do a school
project and fix my car at the same time. I decided to paint it two tone
Candy red on top and Metallic silver on the bottom and a black pin stripe
all the way around and I blacked out all the lights. thnxs

The end of an era..
Last view of my project car/truck (1984 Dodge Rampage) known to the world
I was unable to complete the project due to a car accident/spinal injury
(got rear ended in my other ride) And decided I had to let it go..
One of the hardest decisions I've had to make..
bummed to say the least..
A special thanks to the people who helped me with this truck..
Bill White, helped me with alot of stuff..
Johnny Spiva at PolyBushings.com for sponcering me for AutoX to help the
low budget racer make the truck stick when autocrossing
Chris Wright at turbosUnleashed for all
the advise and excellent service.
Chris Roy for helping me out with misc parts for the conversion..
Cindy at FWDperformance.com for putting up with the nickel and dime orders
of "things I forgot"
My other family's at Team Omni, SDML and the RampageRunners mailing list
(yahoo) not to mention the newest little list that SuperDave and I got
rolling, Rampage/Scamp mailing list (yahoo)
I'm a little torn up over this decision and it really sucks to have to get
out of these vehicles and not to complete something I started..
For now, if or until I can get my back fixed I'm going to be laying low..
If I can get back to being my old self, I'll get into another project.
For the time being, I need to focus on medical bills and figuring out how
to get some health insurance so I can get my back checked out..
lame video, but.. well.. it is what it is..
take it easy
1984 Dodge Rampage Red
This was the last year of the three year production of this Omni-Horizon
based truck. It used the 2.2 liter engine and by this time had a 4 speed
manual or 3 speed automatic. The Plymouth Scamp was the same basic truck
offered by Plymouth dealers. Front wheel drive and the small engine
limited it in truck duty, so it really was only a niche player..but still a
cool vehicle. I seldom see any examples today.
