I've always liked the look of Breeze tails in the first gen Stratus.  I plan on getting a set some time.  Nice looking R/T you have, also.  Welcome to the forums.

Funny thing is that those are the factory tail lights on the 1g stratus. The neon is my project car and summer DD looking to hit 400 whp this spring with it.

The 2001 Dodge Stratus R/T is all stock other than the poly mm inserts.

 

The 2000 Dodge Stratus R/T next to it is my secret gem.

 

Then its the 1997 Dodge Neon R/T Clone with SRT swap and big turbo.

I suppose i can share a little more as long as people don't ask too many questions. I like to talk about this car but sometimes people ask too many questions.

Oh, I see. I assumed it was a US spec model with breeze tails.  They look just like Breeze tails, actually.  I would ask how you managed to get one into the US, but I bet that's one of the questions you're not willing to answer.  Nice.

They are rare in the states, but my dad saw a few of them for sale at police auctions back in the day.

Where those wheels available with that car? The reason I ask is in the states, I believe they were only available on the convertibles. I put them on my car as well (but in charcoal). I love them.

And nice R/T. I'm still trying to build myself one, but life got in the way. I guess I did a good job on my wheel choice, then.

Your secrets are safe with us. ;)

A number of 1G R/Ts found their way to the US, as did a number of 2G R/T Turbo sedans. We'll just ignore the reasons why they weren't sold here in the first place.

Good eyes, people - but yes, the Mexi-spec 1G Stratus did have "Breeze tails" and "JXI split 5-spoke" wheels on them as standard.

Note that they sold the Cirrus/Sebring sedans with the turbo 2.4 in Mexico as well.
