    Well, that's not good. To be fair though, it is a Dodge Neon. I don't think Dodge Neons have a very good reputation at all. @Harkin Labs Gaming, Have you ever driven a Dodge Neon? If so, what did you think of it?

    The Chrysler Neon I believe is very underrated in my opinion. It is very light, and also handles very well and is a fantastic track car. Also lets not forget about the SRT-4, one of the best sport compacts ever built.

    Back when my username was GWMan, I would say "Thanks for the information" with a smiley face that looks this.

    =)

    However, I'm not doing that this time. Anyways, I don't know about the Chrysler Neon, but the Dodge Neon has a bad reputation I think.

    The Neon looks so ugly in my opinion. Look wise, it might be worse then the Fiat Multipla or the Pontiac Aztek.

    Buddy had a neon in high school, it was a perfectly mediocre car. Besides the ugly face and bland "cinnamon glaze" paint color there was nothing wrong with it. I think his brother drives it now and it's still trucking along with no issues that I've heard about.

    Absolutely not, nothing can beat the Multipla in terms of ugliness.

    I have not driven one, but my friend has a few in his family. They aren't terrible cars and they are easy to find parts for in my area. They seem simple enough and easier to work on than other cars. The base models are just cars though, not the most interesting but gets you places.

    I've never driven a Neon. I'm not sure if they sold them in the EU market.

    They did, and they badged them as Chryslers because Dodge and Plymouth weren’t in the European market (iirc).

    I mean, just because they sold them over there doesn't mean they sold well. Look at how poorly the Fiat 500 did here.

    Probably a favourable exchange rate.

    Many cars that make us go "who the hell bought these" weren't such insensible buys, because of things we don't remember - low purchase prices, low running costs, political climate, inaccurate future predictions, good reputation at the time...

    Imagine a car that is quieter than a contemporary Rolls-Royce or S-Class, has similar equipment, brakes better than they do, has just slightly worse acceleration and gas mileage than the S-Class (but beats the Rolls in these regards), and can seat nine if it's a wagon.

    Imagine this car costs less than $40k in today's money when well-equipped.

    This car was real. It was the 1970s Ford LTD.

    This is quite random, but I just realized that the engine used by two-stroke Trabants (P50-601) is, by the very defenition of the word, a hemi, as is visible from the first picture. I really want to buy a 601 universal and tell people that I have a German shooting brake with a hemi engine but not mention that it's a Trabant.

    Edit: I should mention that the first picture is of a Trabant cylinder head, just in case that wasn't obvious.
