    Modifying a mirage I am not crazy this is my unsual show car to prove it

    I know some people think I am nuts for wanting a Mirage to modify but if I can crank out a custom PT Cruiser link here http://www.cardomain.com/ride/210157...photo-gallery/ I am thinking lowering springs, rims, intake, exhaust, and 2 10" subs all with in normal reason. Again nothing ricy nothing crazy. I think the Mirage is a great platform and blank cavis that I can have fun with.

    I'll sell you my 2015 that already has coilovers and wheels and full exhaust for $5500. It's a rust-free Florida car. Come get it!
    Simplify and add lightness.

    I love what you did with your PT Cruiser. I think those are cool looking cars, I know people mock them, but like our Mirage, they are for those who march to a different drummer.

    I can't wait to see what you could do to a Mirage.

    Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way

    I almost bought a PT Cruiser GT. I also almost got divorced over it.

    I say go for it with a Mirage, and customize the car. I think you should go for a manual transmission, and might regret it later not getting a manual in a small car/small engine car such as this.

    Not everyone's cup of tea though, and my friend had a softball injury so that ruined his manual days. I have had my Mirage almost 6 years and it's bone stock, besides new wheels and basic maintenance.

    Your PT Cruizer looks great. My old buddy's late dad was a Mopar man and had a series of cool late '90s-era Dodge's. One of which was a Stealth clone car, that was borrowed from Mitsubishi. The other cool car was an SRT-4 Neon. With the big spoiler on the back.

    I urinated off a bunch of skittle owners by calling their neon's neon's lol They'd always cry 'it's not a neon, it's an srt4!' Good times
