its just 200k for all. There is no $1,350 each, or they would have been sold a looooong long time ago when this article was published. I've seen this article posted on just about every mopar/neon forum there is. They were on ebay, as a lot with all 150 for $200,000.

Yeah. I saw this months ago, they were on Ebay when I first saw it, i don't know if they still are or not. But this is a pretty legit statement if you ask me:

A car that has sat for 14 years unused is likely to have a lot of issues, most of the rubber silicone and plastics will need to be replaced. Looks like they were stored in a place that left them exposed to elements, if not rain, so there could be a lot of rust, not only in expected places like the exhaust system, but in places where you wouldn't find it on a car that's been used regularly, like inside the crankcase, rusty valves and pistons from moisture collecting inside the engine. Cars aren't meant to be left sitting for years unmaintained like that, it almost always does bad things to them. If they have batteries in them, many of them have probably exploded, and the battery acid has likely eaten away at important structural parts of the unibody. I've seen this many times in cars that have sat for years with batteries left in them. The wheel bearings may be shot as well, flat spotted from all those years without being moved. The list of possible problems in such vehicles is endless, entropy does nasty things to machinery which is designed for motion.

I'd definitely prefer a car that's been driven every day and well maintained to one that sat for over a decade untouched. They are sure to have many unusual problems that you'd never see in the average 14 year old car that's been in continuous use.

I would assume they are still for sale. No one would drop 200,000 on a lot of neons. If I remember correctly, you could buy them individually but the cost to have one imported to the us would be insane.

They're not interested in selling them individually.

They said they were going to be scrapped like last year. Obviously, they still haven't been scrapped... I want one so bad.

I agree with the reply from the guy I posted the quote from. Not worth it.

I don't see why not. If someone invested the money into them, and then re-sold them, they could make some good profit. Problem is finding the funding, space, and the market.

I highly doubt someone in the US could buy them up, ship them over, import paperwork/fees (not sure if there are any or not), do what maintenance they need, and sell them for a profit.

In order to make it worthwhile, you'd have to sell them for $4000 or more in the end. Not gonna happen. Maybe 5-10 would sell for that much, but not all of them. There are many better/newer options out there in that price range.
