I really hope you are joking?

I am not sure what soup would do for your vehicle? Plus, you drive a neon, adding anything to it would be pointless, why fix up a $2000 car anyways?

What exactly are you looking to do? Add a fart can muffler, a body kit from ebay, and a 4ft spoiler?

My advice would be to make sure the headgasket is not leaking before you go and invest $$$$$ in aftermarket kits. They ALL leaked.

I don't know anywhere in Tucson, but I used to work at a Dodge dealer and there are a ton of things you can do from chrome valve covers to torsion bars in the rear.

I think this person is more interested in appearance, and doubt they would even know what a torsion bar is lol.

If your plans include a Beefy Sound System, my recommendation would be "JC" at The Specialist on Thornydale just north of Orange Grove (near Costco). He's a true professional as well as does excellent work . . . not a flakey salesman.

No help otherwise, dreaaz.

There are a few places in Tucson. I found some by searching the internet. (I don't live there yet) I am a car freak so part of relocating for me os to know that there are car related things to do and places to buy parts.

Neons can be made to look pretty cool with some body parts/wheels/etc. Although I have also bought many things on E-bay. That's the only place I could find projector headlights for mt 97 Grand Caravan. I also got a factory rear spoiler fo it there too.

There are also a few pretty cool places that do restoration and engine conversions in Tucson. One is Desert Hybrids. Desert Hybrids Precision They do restorations and also v8 conversions on Porsche 914's. (very nice work too) The other place I found is Hi Speed Customs. Hi Speed Rods Customs Choppers They do just about everything. I would think that either of these places would be able to point you to where you can buy things for your Neon.
