Asia frees secret stash of 150 never-driven Neons

The laws of supply and demand win again; Just when American used cars were becoming more expensive, a Singapore-based entrepreneur has decided now's the time to sell a cache of 150 1997 never-driven Chrysler Neons.

The Neons and their grinning rictus had a moment of glory in the late '90s, but how and why 150 stripped-down versions lacking even radios managed to survive untouched is a mystery. The seller offers no other details about these vehicles, such as what kind of transmission they have or even if they've even been turned over. Given the Pompei-esque layer of dust upon their windows, you should guess the answer is "no."

Given that a Neon in good shape is still worth a couple thousand dollars, the price of $1,350 per Neon here isn't astronomical — until you consider shipping, care and God-only-knows condition of the interior. Maybe it's just the best prank ever pulled by the Sultan of Brunei.

Hat tip to Nolan!
