Maybe we love and hate the Dodge Neon because in it we see ourselves.
When it comes to carving mountain passes, what better car could there be but Neon?
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.
E30s? Miatas? Supras? Forget 'em! With Day One of the '10 Gator-O-Rama LeMons in the books, the standings are dominated by a group of cars that brings tears of joy to our eyes!
In the mid-90s, Chrysler had finally built an all-American compact car that struck fear into the Japanese auto industry. The Neon was pretty quick, looked good, and sipped gas. Then… disaster!
Other than the Saturn S Series, the Neon has been the most reliable Detroit-built LeMons car. The Neon is fast, handles well, and has excellent parts availability. Why don't more Civic LeMons racers switch to the more reliable (on the race track) Neon? Yeah, why is that?
