Wow! While I do not think this generation of the cars are attractive at all; I would buy one for $1,350. Brand new? Never driven? Good on gas? Heck yeah! Maybe not every day, I'd get truck sick, but I'd like to pimp one of these things out for cheap! I'd spend $2,000 if I inspected it and it ran good.

They're worth whatever scrap metal sells for..... In USA I can think of 150 16-20 somethings who would love to have the parts!

I wonder if the heads leaked any oil while just sitting there...lol

Default Scrap price

Any Neon is worth $300 here in PA for salvage. Did the article say if they are left or right hand drive? Next question if you want to reimport back here to the Big PX what smog and crash stuff was left off.

Well, they are in Singapore .. and they are Right-Hand steering ... ideal for a rural mail or newspaper delivery ... if not just something kewl to bomb around in. I'd buy one, but not unless I could see it and start it up first ...

These should be donated to charity, that's about all their worth. At least someone could benefit from them.

I'd buy one or two if I knew how to go about it. I enjoyed driving my '97 Neon sport!

Was Googling this story for other write-ups,my favorite was "Alternatively, if you have just over $200,000 you could buy the lot and have the makings of a race series... "

no one will ship from Singapore to the United States,so you would have to ship it to a country that accepts those kind of shipments from singapore then to one that ships to the USA. I did a search for cost of shipping and found no one will ship direct to USA. Sounds like it may be cheaper to buy a brand new right hand drive car.
