The world is filled with curious questions. Why are we here? Why do we hate tomatoes but love ketchup? Why do Americans love crossovers? Why are there 150 brand-new 1997 Dodge Neon models with zero miles on the odometer up for sale in Singapore? That last one is particularly perplexing. Arete Trading Pte Ltd. has somehow managed to get its hands on a small flotilla of pristine Neon models and is currently in the process of parceling them out for the lowly sum of $1,350 each. That means, if you had $202,500 laying around, you could live the dream of driving a brand-new 14-year-old car every day for 150 days straight.

Or at least you could once you had the necessary vehicle systems straightened out. We're guessing that each of these Neons could use some fuel and brake system work in order to be even quasi viable. Still, as the good people at Motor Authority point out, get enough friends together and you could have one hell of a one-make race. Check out the sale here.

      Now Chrysler can cease production of the Dodge Caliber, use these new Neons as a more competitive stop gap model until the Alpha Romeo based hatch arrives.

      I think the big question here is why someone was hoarding 150 Neon's.

      I think some spec racers need to get to Singapore, STAT! Remember the Neon ACR?! http://www.moparmagazine.com/assets/images/nov-dec_2010/heritage/heritage_neon_nation_amain.jpg

      LOL, spec Neon series. That would be awesome! If you crash it, just throw it away.

        Dodge isn't a well-known brand abroad. The Neon was sold as a Chrysler.

      If they weren't right hand drive, depending on the trim level...I'd take one or two. For the time, they were not horrible cars, and they are cheap enough to buy a spare! There are PLENTY of parts around, and in junk yards. They get good mileage, so it would be great for commuting. Pretty much a brand new beater!

      Too bad they weren't Hemi 'Cudas! Maybe there are at least a couple of SRT-4 or ACR models among them?
