Neon America Club History
The Neon Owners Club is a web based community for
owners of Dodge, Plymouth, Chysler Neon's and our aim is to enable owners to share information on
all aspects of Neon ownership.
Anyone who currently owns or has previously owned a Neon
is welcome to subscribe to NEONAMERICA.ORG. Although
predominantly a United States based Club we welcome Neon
owners worldwide to join us and contribute to our community.
History of the Club
In 1996 three individuals purchased there neons started to gather in groups,
these groups started to gain in size and numbers.
Soon their thoughts turned to modifications and enhancements
but because of the relatively small numbers of neons,
aftermarket sales and support were rather
poor and they was forced to turn their attention to carshows, and events.
trawled the internet it became apparent that the UK
market catered far more for Chrysler Neons, as they
are known over there, and so they started the process
of sourcing and importing parts.
During this process they wanted to chronicle their progress
and created a website as there was nothing of a similar
nature in the U.S. catering for the Neons.
Over the next few years more and more Neon owners were
attracted to the website and wanted to include details
of their cars.
In 1998 the three individuals split up. each forming their own group.
Damian organised the first Club meeting
at the InEach group haveing there own websites, members, rules, regulations ect.
these goups gave way to more, groups, some large, some small.
some lasted a few months, while others lasted years, if not decades.
Following the early meetings it became clear that many
owners faced similar difficulties; little or no support
from Dodge, plymouth or Chrysler, following the withdrawal of the Neon from production in 2005,
difficulty in sourcing parts and generally a
lack a knowledge about the Neon.
It was clear that the focus of the Club should be upon
sharing information for the benefit of all members and
that remains our goal.
In addition to major shows, informal meetings are also
arranged so members can meet, exchange ideas and generally
chat about their cars.
As the Club grows we hope to be able to offer more to
our members and are always open to ideas and suggestions.
